Generex Biotechnology Announces Publication of Generex Oral-Lyn Study Results in Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics

WORCESTER, Mass., Aug 14, 2007 (PrimeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) -- Generex Biotechnology Corporation (Nasdaq:GNBT), the leader in drug delivery for metabolic diseases through the inner lining of the mouth, announced today that the results of a Generex Oral-lyn(tm) study have been published in Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics.

Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics is a peer-reviewed journal covering new technology and new products for the treatment, monitoring, diagnosis, and prevention of diabetes and its complications.

The title of the published abstract is "Comparison of Oral Insulin Spray and Subcutaneous Regular Insulin at Mealtime in Type 1 Diabetes," authored by Jaime Guevara-Aguirre, M.D., Marco Guevara-Aguirre, M.D., Jeannette Saavedra, M.D., Gerald Bernstein M.D., and Arlan L. Rosenbloom, M.D.

The published conclusion is that regular insulin and Generex Oral-lyn had similar glucodynamic effects in subjects with Type-1 Diabetes Mellitus receiving twice-daily insulin analogue as baseline therapy. Intensive monitoring and timely corrections with additional snacks, additional sc regular insulin, or Generex Oral-lyn(tm) puffs resulted in appropriate glycemic control as assessed by individual daily glycemic responses and especially, normal preprandial glycation decreased, but not significantly.

"This publication is significant in that it shows consistently and clearly that equivalent amounts of Generex Oral-lyn and injected regular insulin will yield comparable blood glucose control," said Dr. Gerald Bernstein, Generex's Vice President of Medical Affairs and a co-author of the article.
