Ultresa

Ultresa is an enzyme mixture isolated from porcine or bovine pancreas, sometimes called pancreatin. It contains 3 enzymes: amylase, lipase, and a protease (chymotrypsin). Ultresa is marketed under several brand names such as Ultresa™ and Viokace™.

Used in the treatment of cystic fibrosis or pancreatic dysfunction, ultresa helps improve fat digestion in the small intestine. Specifically, the lipase, protease and amylase components break down fat, protein, and starches, respectively, in the small intestine. Lipase hydrolyzes fats into glycerol and fatty acids. Protease converts proteins into proteoses and derived substances, while amylase converts starches into dextrins and sugars. Pancreatic enzymes are used to correct maldigestion, malabsorption and pain associated with pancreatic insufficiency. The major maldigestion/malabsorption problems arise from incomplete fat digestion. Exogenous ultresa reduces the amount of nitrogen and fat excreted in the stool.

Overdose symptoms may include diarrhea or stomach upset. The most common adverse reactions seen are ear, neck, and abdominal pain; headache, nasal congestion, and beta-hemolytic streptococcal infection.
