Sucraid (Sacrosidase) - Summary

 
 



SUCRAID SUMMARY

SUCRAID® (sacrosidase) oral solution is an enzyme replacement therapy for the treatment of genetically determined sucrase deficiency, which is part of congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID). SUCRAID is a pale yellow, clear solution with a pleasant sweet taste. Each milliliter (mL) of SUCRAID contains 8,500 International Units (I. U.) of the enzyme sacrosidase, the active ingredient.

SUCRAID (sacrosidase) oral solution is indicated as oral replacement therapy of the genetically determined sucrase deficiency, which is part of congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency. (CSID)

13C-breath tests for sucrose digestion in congenital sucrase isomaltase-deficient and sacrosidase-supplemented patients. [2009.04]
BACKGROUND: Congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID) is characterized by absence or deficiency of the mucosal sucrase-isomaltase enzyme. Specific diagnosis requires upper gastrointestinal biopsy with evidence of low to absent sucrase enzyme activity and normal histology. The hydrogen breath test (BT) is useful, but is not specific for confirmation of CSID. We investigated a more specific 13C-sucrose labeled BT. OBJECTIVES: Determine whether CSID can be detected with the 13C-sucrose BT without duodenal biopsy sucrase assay, and if the 13C-sucrose BT can document restoration of sucrose digestion by CSID patients after oral supplementation with sacrosidase (Sucraid)... CONCLUSIONS: 13C-sucrose BT is an accurate and specific noninvasive confirmatory test for CSID and for enzyme replacement management.
