WORCESTER, Mass. and TORONTO, Dec. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Generex Biotechnology Corporation (www.generex.com) (OTCBB:GNBT) today provided an update on the status of the clinical and regulatory program for Generex Oral-lyn™, the Company's proprietary buccal insulin spray product.
Work has been completed on reviewing, validating, re-analyzing (including additional new analyses), and revising all of the extant Generex Oral-lyn™ Clinical Study Reports. In addition, the data collection, analysis, review, and preparation of the final Clinical Study Report for the recently concluded Generex Oral-lyn™ Study 084, A 26-Week, Open-Label, Randomized, Active Comparator Study of Generex Oral-lyn™ Spray and Injected Human Insulin In Subjects With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, has been completed.
This will allow an on-schedule completion this quarter of Generex's response to USFDA queries (as described during the annual meeting of stockholders in June). The new Generex Oral-lyn™ Investigators' Brochure (required for review and conduct of future Generex Oral-lyn™ studies) remains on schedule for completion, submission to the regulatory agencies of all countries participating in Generex Oral-lyn™ trials, and publication for investigators and ethical review boards in the first quarter of 2012.
The new clinical development plan, including pharmacokinetic and gluco-dynamic studies, a comprehensive clinical phase 3 program (to assure appropriate marketing approval to treat every type of patient with diabetes), and a small number of well-designed physiologic studies to demonstrate the unique advantages of Generex Oral-lyn™ (vital for marketing and reimbursement) will be announced early in the first quarter of 2012. Additionally, a meeting with the USFDA will be scheduled in the first quarter to insure consensus with the clinical plan to help achieve an expeditious regulatory review and marketing clearance.
The Company also announced today that the next investor conference call, initially scheduled for late November, will be rescheduled to early January, 2012. "The Generex management team and its advisors have been working diligently on the previously announced strategic development plan, including the spinout of Antigen Express, the Generex reverse stock split, the stock dividends of Antigen stock to the Generex stockholders, and the clinical and regulatory development programs for Generex Oral-lyn™ and the the AE37 immuno-therapuetic vaccines platform technologies, and significant progress has been made," said Mark Fletcher, the Generex President & Chief Executive Officer. "In order that the investor conference call will be as productive, informative, and useful as possible, we have elected to reschedule the call to a later date when the plan will have achieved greater maturity and specificity so as to be in a position to provide a more comprehensive and detailed report to our stockholders."
