The webinar features presentations by Anne L. Peters, MD (Keck School of Medicine of USC) and Alexander Fleming, MD (formerly with the FDA and currently Kinexum and The Kitalys Institute), who discuss the current treatment landscape, the unmet medical need, and the potential of ORMD-0801, an oral insulin candidate currently in phase 3 trials, in treating patients with type 2 diabetes.
A live question and answer session follows, which includes members of the Oramed management team. To view the event, please click this link: The Need for Oral Insulin in Type 2 Diabetes; Webinar Hosted by: Oramed Pharmaceuticals ($ORMP) – YouTube

She previously directed the clinical diabetes programs at Cedars-Sinai and UCLA. Her research has focused on testing new approaches for diagnosing and treating diabetes and developing systems of care to improve outcomes in diabetic populations
In addition to being an investigator for more than 40 research studies, Dr. Peters has published over 200 articles, has written four books, and has given more than 500 lectures locally, nationally, and internationally. She has been on multiple guideline writing committees for the treatment of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. She was a recipient of the ADA Outstanding Physician Clinician Award, the Bernardo Houssay Award from the National Minority Quality Forum and received a 2021 Endocrine Society Laureate Award for Public Service. Currently, Dr. Peters is the chair of the Endocrine Society Committee on Diabetes Devices and is on the EASD/ADA Technology Safety Committee. Additionally, she is a member of the JDRF Panel on Management of Exercise in type 1 Diabetes and a member of the ABIM Endocrinology Subspecialty Board. Dr. Peters consults for many entities, including the FDA, Optum Rx and CVS/Caremark to help guide the development and use of treatments for diabetes. Alexander Fleming, MD is Founder and Executive Chairman of Kinexum, a strategic advisory firm. He is also the Founder and President of the Kitalys Institute, a non-profit working to advance public health. Dr. Fleming previously served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Tolerion, a biotechnology company developing “disease-modifying” treatments for type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases.
Dr. Fleming received his MD and internal medicine training from Emory University.
He completed fellowship training in endocrinology at Vanderbilt University and metabolism at National Institutes of Health, where he was a senior fellow. At the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from 1986 to 1998, Dr. Fleming was responsible for the therapeutic areas of diabetes, other metabolic and endocrine disorders, growth and development, nutrition, lipid-lowering compounds, and reproductive indications. He led reviews of landmark approvals, including metformin and the first statin, insulin analog, PPAR-agonist and growth hormone for non-GH deficiency indications. Dr. Fleming represented the FDA on multiple expert working groups of the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH). He serves on multiple corporate, advisory, and editorial boards and working groups. Dr. Fleming coined the term “Metabesity,” which refers to the constellation of cancer, heart and neurologic diseases, diabetes, and the aging process itself, all of which share common metabolic root causes and potential preventive therapies. He co-founded the Metabesity Conference in 2017 and the non-profit Kitalys Institute as means of advancing interventions of any kind that can improve health and health-span.
