What is ZENPEP?

How ZENPEP Works

ZENPEP is available for individuals diagnosed with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) due to cystic fibrosis or other conditions. Your doctor or your child’s doctor may prescribe ZENPEP to help manage EPI due to CF or other conditions.

ZENPEP is a prescription medicine for people who cannot digest food normally because their pancreas does not make enough enzymes. ZENPEP may help your body use fats, proteins, and sugars from food. ZENPEP contains a mix of digestive enzymes (lipases, proteases, and amylases) from pig pancreas. ZENPEP is safe and effective in children.

ZENPEP can help manage your exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) due to cystic fibrosis (CF) or other conditions.

ZENPEP studies in CF

EPI occurs when the pancreas doesn't make enough of the enzymes necessary to digest the food you eat. The pancreas produces the main digestive enzymes lipase, protease, and amylase.
