Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) recently announced the allowance of a new patent in Japan, the fourth to be granted in that country and the 26th worldwide. “Entitled Lipophilic Active Agent Infused Compositions with Reduced Food Effect, this is the first patent issued from Lexaria’s seventh patent family and refers to tetrahydrocannabinol (‘THC’). The new patent acknowledges DehydraTECH(TM)’s ability to deliver active pharmaceutical ingredients (‘APIs’) more efficiently, in a process known as absorption, regardless of the presence of food in the gastrointestinal system. Ordinarily, food impacts drug absorption by physically interacting with drugs, altering the pH, stimulating bile flow, slowing gastric emptying time, or increasing splanchnic blood flow. But DehydraTECH, Lexaria’s patented drug delivery technology, delivers drugs more consistently into the bloodstream regardless of this food effect. The drug delivery technology achieves this through its use of fatty acid oil,” a recent article reads. “Lexaria’s technology joins the API’s molecules in what is believed to be a ‘barbell-shaped’ structure that allows the body to detect both molecules while enhancing taste and absorption. The body’s detection and natural processing of the long chain fatty acid is part of Lexaria’s clever patented process that also enhances API absorption.”
