JERUSALEM A company that develops alternative drug delivery systems said it achieved positive results in a mid-stage clinical trial of an orally administered insulin for treating Type 1 diabetes.

Oramed Pharmaceuticals said the phase 2a trial of its insulin capsules, ORMD-0801, showed the capsules was well-tolerated and produced no serious harmful side effects.
