Drug delivery platform innovator Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) this morning announced that within minutes after dosing in an animal in vivo study, it has successfully delivered nicotine in an edible form into blood plasma. Per the update, Lexaria’s DehydraTECH™ technology delivered nicotine with 90.2% greater delivery than the concentration-matched control formulation by the 10-minute mark and substantially greater absorption levels than the control formulation at all time intervals in the study. The company contracted a third-party laboratory to conduct the study which concentrated on detailed analysis of absorption over a 60-minute period. Lexaria’s in vitro laboratory, in vivo animal and human clinical absorption studies have all demonstrated quicker and more effective delivery of substances such as nicotine and cannabinoids. The company is continuing its focus on progressing both its R&D and commercialization initiatives with its DehydraTECH™ technology platform.
“Lexaria’s DehydraTECH™ breakthrough technology is demonstrating significant effectiveness in delivering nicotine into the bloodstream much more rapidly than we thought possible, and at levels approaching two times more effective than controls,” Lexaria CEO Chris Bunka stated in the news release. “If we can develop viable ingestible alternatives to cigarette smoking we could help hundreds of millions of people avoid many of the disease states associated with smoking and I cannot imagine a more rewarding destiny bestowed upon Lexaria Bioscience Corp.”
