Final lap of oral insulin tests is here

 
 
BANGALORE: The last patient is now undergoing trials of the highly anticipated Biocon oral insulin IN-105. Soon after this trial, the overall data will be analyzed to take a decision on the drug's launch in the open market. The drug could be launched in late 2010 or early 2011 in India.
 
Biocon research officials told TOI: "We are now in the third phase of the oral-insulin trials. We expect to complete the trials and get the final data in six months. We will assess whether the data is sufficient or if further studies are required. We may at best require a couple of more studies beyond the existing data. We are set to launch the drug in late 2010 or early 2011.
 
 trials of the oral insulin involve around 250 to 270 patients. The last patient is now taking treatment. Biocon is studying the stability of the drug, its capacity to withstand different temperatures -- like its reaction in a fridge and under the sun.

 COMMENT FROM ENDOCRINOLOGIST DR.PRAVEEN RAMACHANDRA: 
   
   its good to know that one more pharma company is trying to develop oral insulin............. for both type 1 & 2 diabetes mellitus insulin is the better drug only problem with patients non cooperation for injectable insulin


    lot of stigma associated with INJECTABLE  form of insulin therapy ................so oral insulin is a very welcome development.................lets hope the efforts of scientists be successful soon................
