Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, celebrated the receipt of its 24th granted patent entitled “Compositions Infused with Nicotine Compounds and Methods of Use Thereof.” Granted in Australia, this is the first patent awarded from the company’s 8th patent family. “The new patent expands on the company’s international IP rights to apply DehydraTECH(TM) technology to most forms of nicotine, namely sprays, gums, lozenges, pouches, capsules, tablets, and pills. It also covers multiple disparate forms of nicotine, including polymer resins of nicotine, freebase nicotine and other nicotine complexes,” reads a recent article. Prior to the award of the 24th patent, Lexaria already had a patent granted in Australia to use DehydraTECH-processed cannabidiol (“CBD”) to potentially treat heart disease. “Thus, the new Australian patent covering the use of DehydraTECH-nicotine builds on the existing IP protection there and sets the stage for the company to exploit nicotine- and CBD-oriented opportunities within this market.”

About Lexaria Bioscience Corp.
Lexaria’s patented drug delivery technology, DehydraTECH(TM), improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”) enter the bloodstream by promoting more effective oral delivery. Since 2016, DehydraTECH has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to increase bio-absorption with cannabinoids and nicotine by 5-10x, reduce time of onset from 1 – 2 hours to minutes, and mask unwanted tastes; and is also being evaluated for orally administered anti-viral drugs, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (“NSAIDs”), and more. DehydraTECH has also evidenced an ability to deliver some drugs more effectively across the blood brain barrier.
