Date:9/16/2011

WORCESTER, Mass. and TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Generex Biotechnology Corporation (www.generex.com) (OTCBB: GNBT) announced today that Dr. Nicola Napolii, from University Campus Bio-Medico in Rome, Italy, made a podium presentation of the clinical data on Generex Oral-lyn™ buccal insulin spray on September 14, 2011 at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) annual meeting in Lisbon, Portugal.

Dr. Napoli presented a paper entitled "Buccal spray insulin: a new tool to treat subjects with impaired glucose tolerance."  The paper was authored by a team of investigators led by Professor Paolo Pozzilli of the Endocrinology & Diabetes Department of University Campus Bio-Medico and the Diabetes Department of Hospital "S. Pertini", both in Rome, Italy.  The results reported in the scientific paper demonstrated that patients treated with Generex Oral-lyn™ achieved a significant reduction of HbA1c compared to the control group, with no adverse events.  Also, there was no significant difference in body weight and no hypoglycaemic or other adverse events were observed during the study period in both groups.  These preliminary results suggest that the addition of Generex Oral-lyn™ can be an effective treatment compared to diet and physical exercise alone in patients with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) in reducing HbA1c without adverse effects.

"The results suggest Generex Oral-lyn™ will be an important therapy tool for adults with pre-diabetes conditions of IGT and elevated blood-sugar levels," said Mark Fletcher, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "The opportunity to successfully expand Generex Oral-lyn™'s use beyond Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes offers a validated therapy to not only treat and improve the quality of life of those who will eventually be diagnosed with diabetes, but also provides a solution for the diabetes medical community to potentially reduce or be able to prevent the progression of the complications that may arise from having diabetes."

Pre-diabetes is a condition in which individuals have blood glucose or A1c levels higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. People with pre-diabetes have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2010 it is estimated that 79 million Americans aged 20 years or older have pre-diabetes while approximately 50% of Americans aged 65 and older have pre-diabetes.
