Emisphere Technologies, Inc.
Drug Names(s): oral insulin
Description: This is an oral formulation of insulin using Emisphere’s oral drug delivery technology platform, known as the eligen technology. The technology uses proprietary, synthetic chemical compounds, known as EMISPHERE delivery agents, or “carriers.” These molecules facilitate or enable the transport of the therapeutic macromolecules across biological membranes. The delivery agents have no known pharmacological activity themselves. Emisphere’s eligen technology makes it possible to orally deliver a therapeutic molecule without altering its chemical form or biological integrity.
