I'm not really sure whether you want information about Colistim sulfate as well or just Ultrase MT 20.
Ultrase MT 20 is pancrelipase.
Pancrelipase is a combination of three enzymes (proteins): lipase, protease, and amylase. These enzymes are normally produced by the pancreas and are important in the digestion of fats, proteins, and sugars.
Pancrelipase is used to replace these enzymes when the body does not have enough of its own. Certain medical conditions can cause this lack of enzymes, including cystic fibrosis, chronic inflammation of the pancreas, or blockage of the pancreatic ducts.
Pancrelipase may also be used following surgical removal of the pancreas.
The link below has contact details of Axcan Pharma, the manufacturer of Ultrase MT 20. They may be able to help.
I hope this is the sort of information you were searching for.
