Date:2/14/2013

JERUSALEM, February 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ORMP) (http://www.oramed.com), a developer of oral drug delivery systems, announced today that it has been in communication with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding its Investigational New Drug (IND) application for oral insulin. The FDA has asked Oramed to perform a sub study in a controlled in-patient setting for up to a one-week period. In order to accommodate the FDA's request, Oramed will submit a new IND with a clinical protocol for the aforementioned sub study.

"We are very pleased to be in close and positive communications with the FDA, as well as having a clear path which meets the FDA's input. This positions us for imminent clearance from the FDA to proceed with our planned clinical studies," commented Nadav Kidron , CEO of Oramed.
