Pancreatin is a mixture of several digestive enzymes produced by the exocrine cells of the pancreas. Pancreatin is usually obtained from the pancreas of pigs or cows. The pancreas is an organ in animals and people that makes chemicals - amylase, lipase, and protease - that are needed for proper digestion. This mixture is used to treat conditions in which pancreatic secretions are deficient, such as surgical pancreatectomy, pancreatitis and cystic fibrosis.
Pancreatin contains the pancreatic enzymes trypsin, amylase and lipase. A similar mixture of enzymes is sold as pancrelipase, which contains more active lipase enzyme than does pancreatin. The trypsin found in pancreatin works to hydrolyze proteins into oligopeptides; amylase hydrolyzes starches into oligosaccharides and the disaccharide maltose; and lipase hydrolyzes triglycerides into fatty acids and glycerols. Pancreatin is an effective enzyme supplement for replacing missing pancreatic enzymes, and aids in the digestion of foods in cases of pancreatic insufficiency. Pancreatin reduces the absorption of iron from food in the duodenum during digestion.
Pancreatin production, which measures output worldwide, was expected to reach 2,556 tons in 2016 with an increase of 4.07% from its year-earlier level. The global pancreatin market size is estimated to grow from USD 72.1 million in 2011 to USD 89.18 million by 2016, at an estimated CAGR of 4.34% between 2011 and 2016.
