Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, has released data from its HYPER-H21-3 human study. The company noted that data from its simulated pulmonary hypertension clinical study indicate positive safety and efficacy findings. Specifically, results show a tendency (p=0.1) during 15 minutes of simulated low levels of oxygen (hypoxia) for reduced pulmonary artery systolic pressure (“PASP”) with DehydraTECH-CBD treatment versus placebo. According to the announcement, PASP was significantly attenuated by about 5 mmHg or 41% overall (p=0.045) in male participants, which could indicate potential differences by sex in responsiveness to CBD treatment under hypoxic stress conditions. The company noted that this data supports similar findings from previous successful studies, all of which support Lexaria’s anticipated move to begin the process of seeking approval for the technology from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The company has gathered significant evidence of DehydraTECH-CBD’s ability to reduce blood pressure across a wide variety of situations. The data from the most recent study will be analyzed in order to determine the direction of the company’s upcoming research looking into the efficacy of DehydraTECH-CBD use for the management of elevations in pulmonary arterial pressure under hypoxic conditions, related hypoxemic pathologies and pulmonary hypertension.
