Please be advised that due to the high volume of submissions, the ANZCTR is currently experiencing delays in processing submissions from those outside of Australia and New Zealand. As the ANZCTR is funded by Australia and New Zealand, we must prioritise submissions from these countries first, therefore international submissions should allow additional time for registration or updates to registration records. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This is a Phase IIa study, testing a new medication for the compensation of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency caused by chronic pacreatitis and/or distal pancreatectomy. The new medication is called MS1819-SD which is a lipase produced by the LIP2 gene of Yarrowia lipolytica using recombinant DNA technology.

The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the safety of escalating doses of study drug MS1819-SD in people with chronic pancreatitis. This enzyme has demonstrated an appropriate profile to compensate the pancreatic lipase (enzyme) deficiency that is common with CP patients. The deficiency in this enzyme can be responsible of greasy diarrhea, fecal urge and weight loss.

The design of the study is open-label, meaning that all eligible participants will receive the study drug MS1819-SD. The MS1819-SD dose will increase throughout the study during dose escalation visits in each treatment period; study includes a total of four treatment periods.

The total duration of the MS1819-SD treatment phase is of 48-60 days, The total duration of patient participation in the study is of 74-93 days. Patient will receive increasing doses from the lowest dose of MS1819-SD to a maximum dose of MS1819-SD. The total treatment phase will range from 48 days to 60 days.

Secondary outcome [1] 324808 0
The secondary objective for this study is to investigate the efficacy of MS1819SD
in patients with chronic pancreatitis by analysis of coefficient of fat absorption (CFA)and change from baseline.
Timepoint [1] 324808 0
Key secondary endpoints such as the number of evacuations, stools consistency and stools weight during the stools collection period will be assessed.

Statistical methods / analysis
This study is a phase IIa trial, aiming to primarily investigate the safety and to provide exploratory information on the efficacy of different MS1819 doses.
Twelve patients are considered sufficient to assess the safety of doses administered during the escalating dose Phase C within the range of doses evaluated. To account for an anticipated 20% withdrawal rate, approximately 15 patients are planned to be enrolled.

No power calculation has been performed. The sets used for safety and efficacy analyses will include the following:
Safety Set:
A. The safety set is defined as all patients who receive at least one dose of MS1819-SD. Patients will be analysed according to the treatment actually received.
Efficacy Analysis Sets:
A. Full analysis set (FAS): is defined as all patients receiving at least one dose of treatment and with some efficacy assessment available on treatment. The FAS is considered as the primary set for the efficacy analysis.
B. Per-Protocol set (PP): is a subset of the FAS comprising all patients who do not violate the terms of the protocol in a way that would affect the study outcome significantly, as determined by the study clinician.

Summary
Brief summary
This is a Phase IIa study, testing a new medication for chronic pancreatitis. The new medication is called MS1819-SD which is a modified version of a naturally occurring enzyme made in the pancreas.

The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the safety of escalating doses of study drug MS1819-SD in people with chronic pancreatitis. This enzyme has demonstrated an appropriate profile to compensate the pancreatic lipase (enzyme) deficiency that is common with CP patients. The deficiency in this enzyme can be responsible of greasy diarrhea, fecal urge and weight loss.

The design of the study is open-label, meaning that all eligible participants will receive the study drug MS1819-SD. The MS1819-SD dose will increase throughout the study during dose escalation visits in each treatment period; study includes a total of four treatment periods that ranges from low, medium, to higher doses. The total duration of the MS1819-SD treatment phase is of 48-60 days, Participants will be required to complete five day stool collections following high fat meals at the end of the washout period and at the end of each treatment phase. The total duration of patient participation in the study is of 74-93 days.

Safety will be assessed at throughout the study that will include physical examinations and pathology testing to determine immunoallergic effects, Digestive symptoms will also be assessed and evaluated throughout the study.

This study is being sponsored by AzurRx (the Sponsor). The Sponsor will fund researchers who conduct this research for the use of their facilities and to conduct this study.
