Development of Oral Insulin Looming Closer?

India: Pre-Clinical Trial for Administering Oral Insulin Completed
Transgene Biotek, one of the first biotech research companies in India, announced yesterday the development of an oral insulin to be administered via drops. Now that the company has completed pre-clinical trials, they will initiate steps to move into the next stage of Clinical Trials - Stage 1 in Europe and India.

I find this information important as I belive most people who are insulin-dependent would probably rather take a few drops orally than inhale a powder...

We all may want to keep our eye on this company!

Amazing to think that oral insulin is that close to becoming a reality... I'd love to learn more about how it actually works.

My 10-year old son was dx'd type 1 just over a year ago. He's been wearing an insulin pump since 5 mos post-dx. If he could ever take insulin orally instead, my God, what a wonderful thing that would be!

I'm adding a link to your blog this afternoon...

Look forward to reading more on your site!
