Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, recently completed its animal study HOR-A22-1, which showed that the company’s patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology platform significantly enhanced the oral delivery of the estrogen hormone estradiol. “The study found that the DehydraTECH-estradiol composition resulted in a maximum concentration in the bloodstream (‘Cmax’) of 5.65 ng/mL, which was approximately 900% higher than the control formulation’s Cmax (0.63 ng/mL). Additionally, the use of the DehydraTECH-formulation resulted in a 2,000% increase in the levels of the estrone metabolite, also measured using the Cmax parameter: DehydraTECH-estradiol resulted in a Cmax of 6.49 ng/mL compared to the control’s 0.302 ng/mL,” a recent article reads. “Additionally, the study evaluated the area under the curve (‘AUC’), a parameter that gave insight into the total delivery of estradiol over time as well as the extent of exposure to estrone. The AUC was 3.9 hr.ng/mL for estradiol and 32.6 hr.ng/mL for estrone when the DehydraTECH-processed composition was used. In comparison, the AUC after administering the control was non-detectable for both estradiol and estrone, as it was below 0.25 ng/mL, the lower limit of quantitation of the assay. This means the AUC findings were 1,500% and 12,500% greater than the control for estradiol and estrone, respectively.”
