Canadian Intellectual Property Office Grants Patent for Oral Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 Analog of Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc

Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced that the Canadian Intellectual Property Office has granted Oramed a patent titled, 'Methods and Compositions for Oral Administration of Exenatide'. The patent covers Oramed's invention of an oral glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analog. GLP-1 is an incretin hormone that stimulates the secretion of insulin from the pancreas. Exenatide, a GLP-1 analog, is currently marketed in injectable form only, and is indicated for treatment of type 2 diabetes. Exenatide induces insulin release at increased glucose levels and causes a feeling of satiety, which results in reduced food intake and weight loss. Oramed's oral GLP-1 capsule based on the Company's Protein Oral Delivery (PODTM) technology could significantly increase compliance and become a valuable tool in the treatment of diabetes.

Israel's Ministry of Health has approved Oramed's commencement of a proof of concept single dose study for its oral leptin drug candidate to evaluate its pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics (glucagon reduction) in ten type 1 diabetic patients.
