Oramed Pharmaceuticals Completes Proof of Concept Study of Insulin Suppository
Date:2/4/2009

JERUSALEM, Israel, February 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oramed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCBB: ORMP.OB), a developer of alternative drug delivery systems, announced today that it has concluded a proof of concept study in South Africa of insulin suppositories, ORMD-0802, using its proprietary technology. Eight healthy volunteers came for two visits, with two different formulations.

The insulin suppositories showed rapid insulin absorption and reactive glucose lowering effect. The suppositories were well tolerated and no adverse events were encountered.

Oramed's insulin suppositories are advanced as a treatment alternative for injectable insulin. Such an alternative may be especially useful for individuals with immunological-based reactions to repeated injections and who require a temporary recess from daily injections.

Suppositories are often used in pediatrics for the treatment of conditions such as nausea and vomiting, sedation, analgesia, control of seizures, or antipyresis. Suppositories also provide rapid absorption and have the advantage of being relatively painless.

"This proof of concept study of ORMD-0802, insulin suppository, was an important milestone in using our proprietary technology to expand our product pipeline," said Oramed's CEO, Nadav Kidron.
