Insulin Pills Could Shake Up Diabetes Treatment Market, reveals Kalorama Information

Drug manufacturers have tried for years to develop oral insulin and have not had any success. But scientists are developing special coatings for insulin pills that prevent stomach acid from destroying them.

 
PRLog - Jan. 21, 2011 - A major breakthrough could be in the making for Type 1 diabetes patients, according to healthcare market research firm, Kalorama Information.  Drug manufacturers have tried for years to develop oral insulin and have not had any success. The problem has been that stomach acids and enzymes easily destroy insulin and other protein-based drugs.  Scientists are developing special coatings for insulin pills that prevent stomach acid from destroying them.

Scientists also are using additives that make it easier for the intestine to absorb large molecules like insulin. After years of setbacks, signs of success may be at hand. Several insulin pills are now in various stages of clinical trials, and proof of concept may allow them to move into more rigorous clinical testing. Novo Nordisk is in the process of testing its final product, which is a closely guarded secret. Only time will tell, however, whether these much-anticipated pills will make it to the market.  This is according to “The World Market for Diabetes Treatments”, which can be found at: http://www.kaloramainformation.com/Diabetes-Treatments-28...
