About ORMD-0801 Capsule for Type 2 Diabetes 

ORMD-0801 has the potential to create a new paradigm in the treatment of diabetes by oral delivery of insulin at an earlier stage of treatment, potentially slowing disease progression and delaying or even eliminating late-stage complications. Orally administered insulin should bring with it enhanced patient compliance. In addition, intestinally absorbed-oral insulin actually mimics insulin's natural location and gradients in the body by first passing through the liver before entering the bloodstream.
