Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is embarking on new programs as well as extending ongoing ones as it pursues regulatory approvals and entry into different market sectors. In January 2022, the company expects to report blood pressure findings from its third human hypertension study, HYPER-H21-3, building on the successes of the first two human studies that evidenced effective, sustained and safe blood pressure reduction with DehydraTECH-CBD. The company will also be expecting approvals for the protocols around its fourth hypertension study, HYPER-H21-4, which is just one of the many planned studies slated for 2022. “Others include HOR-A22-1, a pharmacokinetic study to evaluate DehydraTECH’s ability to improve the delivery characteristics of estrogen; DEM-A22-1, an efficacy modeling study to evaluate DehydraTECH-CBD with and without nicotine for the potential treatment of dementia; RHEUM-A22-1, an efficacy modeling study to investigate the ability of DehydraTECH-CBD to potentially affect the treatment of rheumatoid disease; and DIAB-A22-1, an efficacy modeling study to explore DehydraTECH-CBD’s ability to potentially impact treatment of diabetes,” explains a recent article. “In addition to fulfilling Lexaria’s goal to enter into new, different multibillion markets, the four animal studies will mark the company’s push to help patients living with these conditions, some of which are potentially fatal.”

About Lexaria Bioscience Corp.
Lexaria’s patented drug delivery technology, DehydraTECH(TM), improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”) enter the bloodstream by promoting more effective oral delivery. Since 2016, DehydraTECH has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to increase bio-absorption with cannabinoids and nicotine by 5-10x and, in some instances with cannabinoids by as much as 27x compared to standard industry formulations, reduce time of onset from one to two hours to minutes, and mask unwanted tastes. The technology is also being evaluated for orally administered anti-viral drugs, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (“NSAIDs”), PDE5 inhibitors and more. DehydraTECH has also evidenced an ability to deliver some drugs more effectively across the blood brain barrier. Lexaria operates a licensed in-house research laboratory and holds a robust intellectual property portfolio with 23 patents granted and over 50 patents pending worldwide.
