Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) understands the shortcomings of orally administered drugs and is developing DehydraTECH(TM), a drug delivery technology that solves challenges such as poor water solubility and membrane permeability, limited absorption and unwanted tastes. “The company began developing DehydraTECH in 2014 and has since strengthened the technology as well as broadened its possible applications… Lexaria has also conducted in vitro and in vivo human and/or animal studies that have evidenced the technology’s ability to mask unwanted tastes, improve the speed of onset, increase bioavailability and brain absorption, and lower dosing – thereby reducing drug administration costs – of APIs,” a recent article reads. “So far, Lexaria has explored how DehydraTECH improves APIs, not limited to, cannabidiol (‘CBD’), oral nicotine and antiviral drugs, with the company describing its oral nicotine investigations as ‘ground-breaking studies to open doors previously closed to disruptive new technology, including the possibility of potent and fast-acting ingestible products that avoid the lung diseases and cancers caused by inhalation of combusted molecules common in smoking.’”
