Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is devoting its research and product development to making drug substances more effective in the approach to treating medical conditions such as high blood pressure and, in the process, to overcoming many obstacles that may hinder their proper use by patients. “One area of Lexaria’s research has focused on pursuing U.S. Food and Drug Administration (‘FDA’) approval to begin formal, registered clinical testing of its DehydraTECH-processed cannabidiol (‘CBD’) for the treatment of hypertension under the Investigational New Drug (‘IND’) process,” a recent article reads. “Lexaria recently announced the launch of its HYPER-H21-4 randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, cross-over study of DehydraTECH-CBD in relation to hypertension, with the potential for enhancing Lexaria’s ability to treat cardiovascular and other disease states beyond hypertension that are related to increased arterial stiffness. Lexaria has already completed other human studies. Last year, studies HYPER-H21-1 and HYPER-H21-2 provided evidence that DehydraTECH-CBD successfully reduced blood pressure in similarly hypertensive human volunteers, and Lexaria announced earlier this month that it had completed all data analyses of its HYPER-H21-3 study with positive safety and efficacy findings.”
