Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, is exploring the impact of its patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology on the oral performance of GLP-1 drugs for the treatment of diabetes and weight loss. “The move could help Lexaria carve out an important market share for an industry that is projected to bring in between $150 billion and $200 billion a year. Given the positive results the company has achieved so far in its diabetes and hypertension clinical studies, Lexaria is optimistic that its foray into GLP-1 drugs will yield positive results and open up its technology to new and more lucrative global markets… GLP-1 agonists work by mimicking the effects of the naturally occurring hormone GLP-1, allowing for the regulation of blood sugar levels and appetite. As a by-product, these drugs have also been linked to weight loss, hence the overall warm reception the drugs have received and the overall uptick in their demand. Lexaria looks to tap into this growing demand, leveraging its DehydraTECH technology to further improve the oral performance of GLP-1 drugs for diabetes treatment and weight loss,” a recent article reads. “With DehydraTECH, Lexaria looks to make GLP-1 drugs more effective with reduced side effects and even more accessible to people with diabetes. It also looks to help drive up the uptake of oral GLP-1 agonists, mainly since they are less intrusive and less painful than injectable alternatives.”
