Hadasit and Oramed Pharmaceuticals Collaborate for Development of Oral Delivery System Technology

Hadasit, the Hadassah University Medical Center's technology transfer company, has signed a contract with Oramed Pharmaceuticals to continue working together on the development of Oramed's platform technology for the oral delivery of medicine, such as insulin. Oramed, a publicly traded company, is the outgrowth of 30 years of research conducted at Hadassah, mainly by the late Prof. Chanoch Bar-On in the Diabetes Unit.

Oramed's flagship product is an oral insulin capsule, which is currently in Phase 2 clinical trials. The oral insulin capsule has the potential to change the current paradigm of treatment for the 285 million people suffering with diabetes worldwide.
