Company: Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LEXX)
Category: News

Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, today announced its intention to launch new human and animal studies to examine DehydraTECH(TM)-processed glucagon-like peptide-1 (“GLP-1”) drugs such as, but not limited to, semaglutide sold under Novo Nordisk’s brand names Ozempic(R), Wegovy(R) and Rybelsus(R), for purposes of improved  bioavailability, cost-effectiveness, tolerability, weight loss potential, management of diabetes and other health conditions. According to the update, Lexaria, through these studies, hopes to achieve superior pharmacokinetic (“PK”) performance using DehydraTECH-powered GLP-1 drugs, which could enable drug delivery via oral capsule at lower costs than current injectables, with reduced side effects and enhanced health benefits. This is a significant expansion of Lexaria’s ongoing study program to examine its patented DehydraTECH-CBD for diabetes control in humans. The company now intends to evaluate this alongside and together with DehydraTECH-processed GLP-1 agents. Program design has commenced, and initial study work will begin soon.
