14:33 EDTORMPOramed says ORMD-0801 appeared safe and well-tolerated in phase IIa trial
Oramed Pharmaceuticals announced detailed results from its previously completed Phase IIa trial investigating ORMD-0801, its orally ingestible insulin capsule, in type 2 diabetes patients. The preliminary results of this trial were originally announced on January 30. The results showed that ORMD-0801 oral insulin appeared to be safe and well-tolerated for the dosing regimen considered in this study. No hypoglycemic events occurred at any point in any treatment group and no treatment related adverse events were observed. Although the study was not powered to show statistical significance, there were trends observed showing pattern of well-defined and short-term increases in plasma insulin and decreases in blood glucose. Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Miriam Kidron stated, "We are very pleased with the outcome of this study, which showed ORMD-0801 to be safe and well-tolerated. Importantly, the decreases in blood glucose we observed were not associated with any hypoglycemic events. We look forward to moving ahead with our planned U.S. Phase IIb trial in individuals with type 2 diabetes which will investigate ORMD-0801 over a longer treatment period and which will have statistical power to give us greater insight into the drug's efficacy."
