    Oral ERT

    Thank you Woodbarn. That was my impression. Genzyme's oral drug is a substrate replacement therapy which is different than enzyme replacement. The two classes of drugs are not interchangeable. I believe that oral dosing of proteins (enzymes) is unique to Protalix. A facilitated pathway to approval could be very significant. Blood levels were also achieved with oral Enbrel in animals according to Dr. Joseph Shaaltiel in his March 7th statement that trials with oral Uplyso were beginning in Israel.
