Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc. issued the following announcement on March 19.
Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Nasdaq: ORMP) (TASE: ORMP) (www.oramed.com), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on the development of oral drug delivery systems, today announced positive feedback from its initial End-of-Phase 2 (EoP2) meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to discuss Chemistry Manufacturing and Control (CMC) of its lead oral insulin capsule ORMD-0801.
The meeting, held in February, followed the successful completion of Oramed's Phase 2b trial of ORMD-0801 for the treatment of type 2 diabetes (See Press Release dated November 12, 2019), which achieved its primary endpoint, the reduction in HbA1c compared to placebo at week 12.
During this meeting the FDA provided feedback on key issues relating to Drug Product manufacture and supported continuing to Phase 3 clinical development. The Company expects an additional meeting with the FDA following deeper analysis of the data from the Phase 2b trial, during which the Company anticipates receiving the FDA's guidance on the Phase 3 study design.
Oramed's Chief Executive Officer, Nadav Kidron, said, "We are very pleased with the productive and constructive feedback from the FDA as we continue on the path to bring oral insulin to market. We look forward to further discussions with the FDA and to their guidance in regards to our anticipated Phase 3 trial."
