Already proven to be a revolutionary treatment for type 2 diabetes and weight loss, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists now appear to have a multitude of potential blockbuster therapeutic uses, according to recent research. Obviously, diabetes remains a primary indication, given the massive global need. However, the impact of this extraordinary molecule extends far beyond type 2 diabetes. The reach of GLP-1 drugs has widened in ways its inventors likely never imagined. Clinical trials are underway testing GLP-1 drugs to treat Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and even drug addiction, plus there are strong indications of therapeutic efficacy in heart disease and chronic kidney disease, as well as a wide range of other conditions, including weight loss. The newfound applications of this super-drug re-enforce both the reach and impact of Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) (Profile). By supercharging GLP-1 drugs with its DehydraTECH(TM) drug-delivery formulation and processing technology, Lexaria intends to improve both delivery and efficacy of GLP-1 for diabetes and potentially a host of other maladies. With several key studies on the near-term horizon, Lexaria has positioned itself in the midst of these market opportunities alongside others changing the landscape, such as Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE), Merck & Company Inc. (NYSE: MRK), AstraZeneca PLC (NASDAQ: AZN) and Novo Nordisk (NYSE: NVO).
