Cystic fibrosis (CF) clinical care guidelines exist for the care of infants up to age 2 years and for individuals ≥6 years of age. An important gap exists for preschool children between the ages of 2 and 5 years. This period marks a time of growth and development that is critical to achieve optimal nutritional status and maintain lung health.

The current recommendations for dosing of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) in infants with cystic fibrosis (CF) were made using a limited evidence base. The per meal recommended dose was extrapolated from dosing guidelines for older patients into a maximal daily dose for infants. We discuss why this maximal daily dose recommendation may be insufficient for young infants with CF, although the optimal dose of PERT for infants with CF remains unknown.

An 8-year-old patient with cystic fibrosis presented with hypoalbuminemia as the main symptom of severe erosive esophagitis. Extensive evaluation failed to reveal a nutrition, pancreatic, intestinal, or renal explanation of his hypoalbuminemia. Identification and treatment of the esophagitis led to resolution of the hypoalbuminemia.

Pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) is essential for maintaining adequate nutrition in children with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) due to cystic fibrosis (CF). The US Food and Drug Administration regulations now require all PERT products to undergo clinical efficacy and safety studies before they can be considered for marketing approval.
This study was conducted to compare the efficacy of a new formulation of pancrelipase (pancreatin) delayed-release 12,000-lipase unit capsules with placebo in children with EPI due to CF.

Pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy is critical for adequate nutrition in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI).
This was a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled, two-period crossover study assessing efficacy and safety of Creon 24,000-unit capsules in CF subjects > or =12 years with EPI. Patients were randomised to one of two 5-day sequences, Creon/placebo or placebo/Creon (target dose, 4000 lipase units/g fat).
