Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is aware of the need to continuously improve its understanding of the capabilities and potential applications of its patented DehydraTECH(TM) drug delivery technology. This informs its long-held commitment to its applied research and development (“R&D”) programs. “So far, the company’s research journey has involved a series of controlled and well-designed in vitro preclinical testing and in vivo animal and human clinical studies…. Still, Lexaria is unrelenting in its pursuit of comprehensive datasets that would answer many questions the company expects to face from potential commercial partners or regulators and is, in fact, expanding its research. [In March], Lexaria kicked off an animal study to evaluate DehydraTECH-CBD as a potential treatment to inhibit seizure activity, the first in a series of additional planned animal studies tentatively set to commence this year,” a recent article reads. “‘DehydraTECH is not an EVOLUTION of existing technology – it is a REVOLUTIONARY new drug delivery platform. Expecting entire industries to change overnight to adopt a revolutionary process is not realistic: it takes time, evidence, and a lot of positive results to overcome industry inertia. We have long been hopeful that, before the end of 2022, we will have built sufficient data to effect meaningful industry and/or regulatory progress and sustainable increases in valuation,’ Lexaria CEO Chris Bunka wrote in a recent letter to shareholders.”
