Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) in 2022 achieved crucial milestones centered around its patented DehydraTECH(TM) drug delivery technology. “For Lexaria, the end goal does not only lie in uncovering DehydraTECH’s ability to improve the bioavailability of various APIs. Instead, the company is keen on establishing whether DehydraTECH can be applied broadly within the pharmaceutical industry. And calendar 2022 has brought Lexaria closer to realizing this goal, with the company initiating a slew of research programs, many of which it has already completed. Moreover, its intellectual property (‘IP’) portfolio received additional patent protection in different jurisdictions around the world. Lexaria also entered into multiple manufacturing and/or licensing agreements with global partners,” a recent article reads. “The company’s 2022 research programs included: a) an animal study evaluating DehydraTECH-processed sildenafil, a phosphodiesterase (‘PDE5’) inhibitor used in the management of erectile dysfunction; b) a 16-person hypertension study, HYPER-H21-3, and a 66-person hypertension study, HYPER-H21-4, both evaluating DehydraTECH-CBD as a potential treatment for high blood pressure; c) a three-part animal study assessing the effectiveness of DehydraTECH-CBD in reducing seizure activity compared to the FDA-approved seizure medication Epidiolex; d) separate investigations on the potential therapeutic use of DehydraTECH-CBD in both diabetes (‘DIAB-A22-1’) and dementia (‘DEM-A22-1’); and e) a human oral nicotine study, NIC-H22-1, designed to compare the performance of Lexaria’s DehydraTECH-nicotine pouch to On!’s (a pouch brand manufactured by Altria) and Zyn’s (the world’s leading nicotine pouch product manufactured by Swedish Match).”
