Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, is using its patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology to improve the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”) enter the bloodstream by promoting healthier oral ingestion methods and increasing the effectiveness of fat-soluble active molecules. In a letter to shareholders last month, Lexaria CEO Chris Bunka provided a thorough strategic update and insight into the company’s plan moving forward.
Mr. Bunka expressed how the current state of the economy has presented challenges to companies, especially during 2022. Still, Lexaria has navigated these challenges well by focusing on the things it can control, such as applied R&D designed to entice others to work with the company commercially. Despite inflation running at a 40-year high and 2022 stock markets experiencing the longest protracted decline since 2008, Lexaria is forging ahead – increasing staff and successfully handling an unprecedented volume of work (https://cnw.fm/JD2q5).
During 2022, Lexaria’s R&D pursuits were a success, firmly establishing the company as one of the world’s leaders in the investigation of cannabidiol (“CBD”) for controlling human blood pressure and demonstrated performance enhancements compared to one of the world’s leading anti-seizure medications. Lexaria expects that 2023 will be full of additional R&D developments.
Lexaria’s expectations for Q1 2023 include the following:
- Additional results from hypertension study HYPER-H21-4
- Dosing completion in the company’s animal dementia study
- Dosing completion in the company’s animal diabetes study
- Dosing completion in human nicotine study NIC-H21-1
- Submissions and publishing of additional results in research journals
Also in 2023, Lexaria expects to file its Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application and receive approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to commence the IND clinical study. The study will be a major step in the company’s maturation as a pharmaceutical company and will be its primary research focus once it commences.
Lexaria’s DehydraTECH technology currently has 28 granted patents, with many more pending patents in countries worldwide. The technology is best thought of as an additional layer that providers of consumer supplements, prescription and non-prescription drugs, nicotine, and CBD products can utilize to improve the effectiveness of their own existing or planned new offerings. It is suitable for use with a wide range of product formats, including pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, consumer packaged goods, and over-the-counter capsules, pills, tablets, oral suspensions and more.
DehydraTECH is designed specifically for formulating and delivering lipophilic (fat-soluble) drugs and active ingredients – increasing effectiveness and improving the way APIs enter the bloodstream. The benefits of DehydraTECH include faster delivery of the drug, increased bioavailability, increased brain absorption, improved drug potency, reduced drug administration costs, and masks unwanted taste, removing the need for additional sweetening ingredients.
Since 2016, Lexaria’s DehydraTECH has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to increase bio-absorption and, reduce the time of onset from one to two hours to just minutes.
