Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) recently announced the results of its antiviral drug molecular characterization study performed by the National Research Council (“NRC”). The results confirmed that the drugs tested remained stable and did not undergo changes in chemical structure when processed with DehydraTECH. “This could preserve the ability of this drug delivery platform to qualify for accelerated regulatory filings with the Food and Drug Administration (‘FDA’) in the United States plus regulators elsewhere in the world,” reads a recent article. “The potential for more rapid market authorization of DehydraTECH provides the potential for cost savings to the health care system to try to deliver antiviral drugs more effectively if delivered via an oral capsule instead of by injection. Delivering the medications in the form of a pill instead of a shot could help governments or health insurance companies save billions of dollars in administration costs alone.”

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.
