Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Treatment: Surgery - Nasogastric Tube Feeding
Other interventions - Conventional Nutritonal Management

Experimental: Nasogastric Tube Feeding - Patients who are to have NTF will receive enteral nutrition within 6 hours after randomisation via a nasogastric tube placed into the stomach. A commercially available low fat semi-elemental feed (Peptisorb®, Nutricia Clinical NZ) will be used. The caloric target will be 2000 kcal per day. Enteral tube feeding will be commenced at a rate of 30 mL/h and increased gradually until 100 mL/h over 24-48 h.

Active Comparator: Conventional Nutritional Management - Patients who are to have CNM will be on nil-by-mouth regimen until they either develop signs of severe AP (in which case enteral tube feeding will be introduced) or the signs of AP mitigate,in which case clear liquids (as tolerated) followed by oral food (as tolerated) will be introduced.

Summary
Brief summary
Acute pancreatitis (AP) is one of the most common diseases in routine clinical practice of
surgeons and gastroenterologists throughout the world. The high rate of pain relapse after
oral refeeding contributes to high consumption of healthcare resources and prolonged hospital
stay in AP patients. The data from the pilot MIMOSA trial suggest that early administration
of nasogastric tube feeding may prevent pain relapse after oral refeeding in AP. The
potential beneficial effects of enteral tube feeding include induction of postprandial
gastrointestinal motility and improving the tolerance of oral refeeding. This may reduce the
risk of pain relapse, thereby shortening length of hospital stay and reducing cost of
treatment. The primary endpoint of the ORION trial will be the incidence of oral food
intolerance. All eligible AP patients will be randomly allocated to either the Early
Nasogastric Tube (ENT) group or Conventional Nutritional Management group (CNM) at 24h of
hospital admission.
