Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) recently announced that a tolerability and pharmacokinetic study, performed by an independent, premier animal testing laboratory in the U.S., had demonstrated that administration of colchicine using its proprietary DehydraTECH(TM) resulted in increased delivery. “Colchicine is an approved therapeutic with anti-inflammatory effects primarily used to treat gout and cardiac conditions such as pericarditis. It was the latest of several drugs Lexaria tested with known SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 antiviral properties after it showed potent effects in mitigating the cytokine storm associated with the virus. Additionally, colchicine is occasionally used to treat emergent pericarditis in children, which would make the substance potentially beneficial against this form of cardiac inflammation when it occurs as a side effect of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines,” reads a recent article. As colchicine has a marginal difference between toxic and non-toxic doses, Lexaria hopes that by using DehydraTECH, it can improve the drug’s bioavailability beyond current levels of approximately 45%, which would potentially allow lower dosing requirements. “Lexaria’s DehydraTECH promotes fast-acting, less expensive and more effective oral drug delivery. The method has been evaluated thoroughly through in vivo, in vitro and human clinical testing. The company has shown, through animal studies, that DehydraTECH technology elevates the quantity of drugs delivered across the blood-brain barrier by as much as 1,900%. The research has initiated new patent applications and opened the possibilities for improved drug delivery.”

About Lexaria Bioscience Corp.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp.’s proprietary drug delivery technology, DehydraTECH(TM), improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”) enter the bloodstream by promoting healthier oral ingestion methods and increasing the effectiveness of fat-soluble active molecules, thereby lowering overall dosing. The company’s technology can be applied to many different ingestible product formats, including foods, beverages, oral suspensions, tablets, and capsules. Since 2016, DehydraTECH has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to increase bio-absorption with cannabinoids and nicotine by up to 5-10x, reduce time of onset from 1 – 2 hours to minutes, and mask unwanted tastes. It is planned to be further evaluated for orally administered bioactive molecules, including anti-viral drugs, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (“NSAIDs”) and more. Lexaria has licensed DehydraTECH to multiple companies including a world-leading tobacco producer for the development of smokeless, oral-based nicotine products and for use in industries that produce cannabinoid beverages, edibles and oral products. Lexaria operates a licensed in-house research laboratory and holds a robust intellectual property portfolio with 20 patents granted and over 50 patents pending worldwide.
