Oramed Granted Canadian Patent for GLP-1 Analog Capsule
Date:5/9/2017

JERUSALEM, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ORMP) (www.oramed.com), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on the development of oral drug delivery systems, announced today that the Canadian Intellectual Property Office has granted Oramed a patent titled, "Methods and Compositions for Oral Administration of Exenatide". The patent covers Oramed's invention of an oral glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analog.

GLP-1 is an incretin hormone that stimulates the secretion of insulin from the pancreas. Exenatide, a GLP-1 analog, is currently marketed in injectable form only, and is indicated for treatment of type 2 diabetes. Exenatide induces insulin release at increased glucose levels and causes a feeling of satiety, which results in reduced food intake and weight loss.

Oramed's oral GLP-1 capsule based on the Company's Protein Oral Delivery (PODTM) technology could significantly increase compliance and become a valuable tool in the treatment of diabetes.

Oramed is seeking to revolutionize the treatment of diabetes through its proprietary flagship product, an orally ingestible insulin capsule (ORMD-0801).  The Company completed multiple Phase II clinical trials of ORMD-0801 under an Investigational New Drug application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In addition, Oramed is developing an oral GLP-1 analog capsule (ORMD-0901).
