In late 2021, Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX) announced several new and ongoing R&D programs for its patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology. While making the announcement, Chris Bunka, the Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), noted that Lexaria would continue to see significant milestones in utilizing DehydraTECH-CBD, focusing on heart disease and hypertension.
“Calendar 2022 will continue to see significant milestones in utilizing DehydraTECH-CBD for investigation of heart disease and hypertension; and separately, for oral nicotine delivery as an alternative to smoking,” noted Mr. Bunka.
“We are delighted to announce that DehydraTECH as an enhanced drug delivery platform will also be evaluated for characteristics and potential treatment options for hormone replacement, dementia, rheumatoid disease, and diabetes,” he added (https://cnw.fm/O7cC0).
It received independent review board approval in what marks a significant milestone for its 2022 R&D program. The approval comes in less than two months after Lexaria announced that it was readying the study protocols for its HYPER-H21-4 study, its fourth recent human clinical study, and its most ambitious one yet (https://cnw.fm/hJ64j).
The approval sets the stage for the HYPER-H21-4 study that could define Lexaria’s future. HOR-A22-1 study, scheduled to start in April 2022, will evaluate DehydraTECH’s ability to enhance the delivery characteristics of estrogen. DEM-A22-1, expected to begin in July 2022, will evaluate DehydraTECH-CBD with and without nicotine for the potential treatment of dementia.
Lexaria also plans to execute on the RHEUM-A22-1 and DIAB-A22-1 studies, scheduled for October and November, respectively, in a move that is intended to build significant value for all its stakeholders while also pursuing policies for substantial improvements to human health.
All the R&D for the 2022 calendar year is fully funded, having raised approximately $15 million in funding over the 2021 calendar year. Lexaria is confident that data from the studies will support the company’s plans to enter regulatory pathways, which, it anticipates, will result in the regulatory approval to use DehydraTECH-CBD for the treatment of hypertension and possibly other types of cardiovascular disease.
