Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is making significant progress in advancing its patented DehydraTECH(TM) drug delivery technology. Lexaria recently reviewed its successful 2021 antiviral drug program. “The company has progressed significantly in evidencing that DehydraTECH can sufficiently enhance the usable fraction of known antiviral drugs that reach the bloodstream to safely and more effectively do what they are designed to accomplish,” reads a recent article. In addition to the antiviral program, Lexaria is also focused on another applied R&D program — hypertension. On July 29, it released partial results from a human clinical study, HYPER-H21-1, evaluating DehydraTECH-processed cannabidiol (“CBD”) for potential application against hypertension. “The study revealed a rapid and sustained drop in blood pressure with DehydraTECH-processed CBD and was most pronounced within the first 10 to 50 minutes of the study. This evidence reinforced the company’s pre-existing findings and further demonstrated its drug delivery technology offers superior performance over generic CBD controls.”
