Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, recently celebrated the receipt of U.S. patent #11,700,875, titled “Compositions and Methods For Sublingual Delivery of Nicotine.” The patent covers various forms and sources of nicotine, including nicotine benzoate, nicotine polacrilex, nicotine citrate, nicotine detartrate, and many others, for use in sublingual delivery formats like oral pouches. “The new U.S. patent is remarkable and ‘strategically important’ in many ways. First, it is the company’s 35th overall granted patent worldwide and the 13th granted in the United States. Second, a total of 30 claims were awarded within this patent, the highest number of claims accepted by the USPTO in the company’s existing portfolio. And with researchers agreeing that patents with a higher number of claims are better protected and can be an important measure of value, the claims increase the value of the new patent and perhaps even the company’s entire IP portfolio,” a recent article reads. “Third… the new U.S. patent could lead to the award of patents within this family in other countries… Moreover, the new patent grants IP protection within the United States, one of the world’s leading oral nicotine markets, according to an analysis by the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World. The U.S. nicotine pouches market is projected to grow at a 33% CAGR between 2023 and 2030.”
