Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX), a drug delivery platform innovator, last year announced a review of its successful 2021 antiviral drug program. “Lexaria specifically probed the bioavailability of five DehydraTECH(TM)-processed antiviral drugs for SARS-CoV-2, HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases from three drug classes, evidencing significant gains with up to a three-fold increase in oral drug delivery into the bloodstream. The demonstrated improvements in absorption, Lexaria believed, could have significant commercial potential considering that many antiviral drugs typically show low oral bioavailability in their available form because of significant liver biotransformation and/or poor intestinal uptake,” reads a recent article. “Lexaria’s vision for DehydraTECH is not limited to antiviral drugs as the company is also focusing on other possible mainstream applications of its disruptive drug delivery platform, including but not limited to oral nicotine and cannabidiol (‘CBD’). Pharmacokinetic studies evaluating these compounds have, in fact, shown that DehydraTECH delivers higher quantities of these APIs in less time… DehydraTECH’s ability to increase the performance of different APIs represents multiple commercial opportunities that, when tapped, could potentially address serious unmet patient needs.”
