Oramed Pharmaceuticals Chosen to Present Results of GLP-1 Analog Enteral Administration Study at the Diabetes Technology Society's Eighth Annual Meeting (November 13-15, 2008; Bethesda, Maryland)
Date:11/4/2008

JERUSALEM, November 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oramed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCBB: ORMP.OB) (http://www.oramed.com), a developer of proprietary drug delivery systems, announced today that its poster entitled "Enteral Administration of Exenatide-4; Proof of Concept Pharmacodynamic Study in Dogs," has been accepted for presentation at the Diabetes Technology Society's Eighth Annual Meeting in Bethesda, Maryland between November 13-15, 2008.

Oramed's exploratory study of enteral delivery of GLP-1 analog, exenatide-4, an incretin mimetic with antihyperglycemic actions on dogs, advances research in the area of enteral delivery of polypeptides and proteins. Oramed's test results showed that direct instillation of GLP-1 analog significantly curbed post-glucose loading, demonstrating the feasibility of administering the drug enterally.

"The selection of Oramed as one of the companies to present at the Diabetes Technology Conference is a wonderful opportunity for us to demonstrate our revolutionary technology to the world's leading diabetes scientists," said Nadav Kidron, Oramed CEO. "We are very proud that our research is advancing the treatment of diabetes and we look forward to continuing to present strong results from the studies and trials we are currently conducting."

Oramed's abstract will be presented on Thursday, November 13, from 6-8 PM. The poster will be available for viewing throughout the conference.
