Cotazym-S-Forte, a new pancreatic supplement containing 10,000 BP units of lipase activity per capsule, was compared with a standard dose pancreatin supplement (Pancrease) with 5000 BP units lipase activity in a randomised crossover trial. The number of capsules of Cotazym-S-Forte administered was half the usual number of Pancrease capsules and was associated with the same degree of fat absorption as Pancrease.
