We are pleased to announce that based on guidance received from the
As agreed with the FDA, our ORA-D-013-1 study will treat T2D patients with inadequate glycemic control who are currently on 1, 2 or 3 oral glucose-lowering agents. This
The ORA-D-013-2 study will include T2D patients with inadequate glycemic control who are managing their condition with either diet alone or with diet and metformin monotherapy. A total of 450 patients will be recruited through 36 sites in the
We plan to commence patient enrollment for both studies this quarter and expect efficacy data to be available after all patients have completed the 6-month treatment period. If we successfully complete the pivotal studies, we expect to conduct a pre-BLA (Biologics License Application) meeting to finalize the plans and data for the BLA submission. After BLA submission and review, if the BLA is approved, a full 12 years of marketing exclusivity would be granted. Oramed is committed to advancing the science and clinical development of oral insulin, as we believe it can deliver meaningful benefits to patients’ quality of life and significantly enhance the treatment of diabetes.
Wishing you and yours good health,
Oramed Pharmaceuticals is a platform technology pioneer in the field of oral delivery solutions for drugs currently delivered via injection. Established in 2006, with offices in New York and Israel, Oramed has developed a novel Protein Oral Delivery (POD™) technology. Oramed is seeking to revolutionize the treatment of diabetes through its proprietary lead candidate, ORMD-0801, which has the potential to be the first commercial oral insulin capsule for the treatment of diabetes. The Company has completed multiple Phase 2 clinical trials under an Investigational New Drug application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In addition, Oramed is developing an oral GLP-1 (Glucagon-like peptide-1) analog capsule, ORMD-0901.

Forward-looking statements: This press release contains forward-looking statements. For example, we are using forward-looking statements when we discuss the potential safety and efficacy of ORMD-801, the validation of preliminary findings in future trials, the potential timing of enrollment for our studies and release of related data, the potential benefits of ORMD-0801, the potential of ORMD-0801 to be the first commercial oral insulin capsule for the treatment of diabetes or revolutionizing the treatment of diabetes with our products. In addition, historic results of scientific research and clinical trials do not guarantee that the conclusions of future research or trials will suggest identical or even similar conclusions. These forward-looking statements are based on the current expectations of the management of Oramed only, and are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, including the risks and uncertainties related to the progress, timing, cost, and results of clinical trials and product development programs; difficulties or delays in obtaining regulatory approval or patent protection for our product candidates; competition from other pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies; and our ability to obtain additional funding required to conduct our research, development and commercialization activities. In addition, the following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements: changes in technology and market requirements; delays or obstacles in launching our clinical trials; changes in legislation; inability to timely develop and introduce new technologies, products and applications; lack of validation of our technology as we progress further and lack of acceptance of our methods by the scientific community; inability to retain or attract key employees whose knowledge is essential to the development of our products; unforeseen scientific difficulties that may develop with our process; greater cost of final product than anticipated; loss of market share and pressure on pricing resulting from competition; laboratory results that do not translate to equally good results in real settings; our patents may not be sufficient; and finally that products may harm recipients, all of which could cause the actual results or performance of Oramed to differ materially from those contemplated in such forward-looking statements.
