ORMD-0801 US FDA trial for the treatment of type 2 diabetes is already in progress
JERUSALEM, August 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQCM: ORMP) (http://www.oramed.com), a developer of oral drug delivery systems, announced today that it has initiated patient recruitment for a new clinical trial of its orally ingestible insulin capsule, ORMD-0801 for patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) in Israel.
"We are very excited to continue our development of ORMD-0801 for this high-need indication. We have been encouraged by our successful T1DM trials to date and we look forward to the commencement of this study," commented Oramed CEO Nadav Kidron.
Prior clinical studies have shown that ORMD-0801 administered to T1DM patients just prior to a meal effectively kept their blood sugar levels stable. The results of one such trial were published earlier this year in the international, peer-reviewed journal PLOS ONE. The research article titled, "Glucose-Reducing Effect of the ORMD-0801 Oral Insulin Preparation in Patients with Uncontrolled Type 1 Diabetes: A Pilot Study," can be accessed on the publication's site: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0059524
