CannabisNewsBreaks – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) Receives Approval to Commence Human Pilot Study Evaluating GLP-1, DehydraTECH

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

Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, has received approval to begin a new human pilot study. The approval, which was granted by an independent third-party ethics review board, enables Lexaria to move forward with its plan to conduct a GLP-1 study investigating GLP-1 drugs and DehydraTECH(TM). According to the announcement, subject recruitment will begin immediately with the first dosing expected within the next month; the company plans to complete the study this summer. The study will be comprised of two study arms and will include up to nine healthy volunteers. The study is designed to compare a single 7 mg dose of Rybelsus(R) (semaglutide) against two different, concentration-matched 7 mg DehydraTECH-enabled semaglutide formulations from crushed Rybelsus. “I am excited about this study,” said Lexaria CEO Chris Bunka in the press release. “The Lexaria scientific team believes that a dissolvable oral tablet that delivers an effective fraction of semaglutide along with reduced side effects could potentially offer valuable benefits to the pharmaceutical industry that might lead to a higher likelihood of favorable strategic partnering with leading industry players in GLP-1. Most GLP-1 drugs sold today are administered by painful and expensive injection devices. More effective and tolerable oral delivery of GLP-1 drugs could be extremely valuable to patients and to industry.”
