MS1819-SD is a non-porcine (not pig-derived) enzyme for individuals with CF who have exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. It is a man-made version of a lipase enzyme taken from the yeast Yarrowia lipolytica. This drug does not contain any animal products.
In 2018, a phase 2a study of MS1819-SD was conducted in people with chronic pancreatitis. The study showed that MS1819-SD was safe and may potentially improve fat absorption.
A phase 2 study in people with CF is currently ongoing. This study will compare MS1819-SD to currently available porcine-derived enzymes.
This program is sponsored by AzurRx Biopharma. It is being conducted within the Therapeutics Development Network (TDN).
