Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Journal Publishes Scientific Paper Authored by Oramed Scientists

JERUSALEM, Oct. 17, 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 the publication of a new paper co-authored by Oramed's Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Miriam Kidron, Dr. Roy Eldor, Dr. Ehud Arbit and Dr. Yael Greenberg-Shushlav. The paper, "Additive Effect of Oral Insulin and an Oral GLP-1 Agonist on Postprandial Glucose Excursions in a Porcine Model" has been published in the Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Journal (EDMJ).

The paper presents the results of a study which investigates the concomitant pre-prandial delivery of enteric-coated oral insulin (ORMD-0801) and oral exenatide (ORMD-0901) capsules in pigs. The positive data from the study suggest an additive effect when ORMD-0801 and ORMD-0901 are given in combination.

Forward-looking statements: This press release contains forward-looking statements. For example, we are using forward-looking statements when we discuss the possible additive effects of ORMD-0801 and ORMD-0901 in combination, our expected clinical development programs and clinical trials or revolutionizing the treatment of diabetes with our products. 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.
