A new podcast highlights the effectiveness enhancement efforts by technology innovator Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX) for treating high blood pressure (hypertension), a key risk factor for both heart disease and stroke that is common in the world’s adult populations, including in the United States.
The podcast (https://cnw.fm/Zf5i6) reviews many important entrepreneurial tips to business owners from Lexaria CEO Chris Bunka. It also notes that nearly half of all Americans have high blood pressure but only about 24 percent of those afflicted with it — many of whom are younger than 40. One of the most insidious aspects of high blood pressure is that, like diabetes, the damage they can cause is often already done by the time they are diagnosed, a reason India’s government recently announced that the health department has begun screening government employees for the conditions in all departments, for example (https://cnw.fm/M6leX).
Lexaria’s patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology is designed to enhance substances such as pharmaceutical drugs into a more readily bioavailable form that speeds up their time to effective use. Clinical trials have been analyzing its ability to accomplish this transformation without causing changes that adversely interfere with the drugs’ intended use, such as by inadvertently creating new molecular entities NMEs that would require more complex new regulatory approvals (https://cnw.fm/KUX1Y).
“Just last month, Lexaria announced that a human clinical study using DehydraTECH technology demonstrated a rapid and sustained drop in blood pressure along with excellent tolerability,” the podcast states. “Initial results show that blood pressure was reduced across both male and female volunteers and was most pronounced in the first 10–50 minutes of the study treatment, reinforcing pre-existing findings demonstrating that DehydraTECH delivers superior performance over generic controls.”
The company’s focus on DehydraTECH is not only to produce a better solution for delivering blood pressure treatments, but also anti-virals that battle SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19, HIV and other illness-causing invaders.
DehydraTECH is also being looked at as a way of making nicotine orally ingestible at a level of quick absorption and efficacy superior to smoked and vaped drugs with the intent of creating a desirable and less harmful alternative to lung-harming inhalation of the substances (https://cnw.fm/AvPBf).
Last month Lexaria chose to delist its common shares from the Canadian Securities Exchange in order to focus on trading on the Nasdaq Capital Markets (Nasdaq ticker LEXX), where it has been seeing greater liquidity and can reduce the fees and managerial commitment that went into a dual listing (https://cnw.fm/w21tt).
The company’s July 10-Q filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission noted that revenues more than doubled between May 2020 and May 2021, driven by intermediate product sales of DehydraTECH-enabled powders that companies can purchase to include in their products and licensing fees arising from definitive agreements for the DehydraTECH technology (https://cnw.fm/aiviY).
