Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) has remained committed to enhancing the speed and overall efficiency of orally delivered fat-soluble active molecules. The company is leveraging its drug delivery technology, DehydraTECH(TM), in the development of hypertension and anti-viral treatments — a big achievement already making an impact in the pharmaceutical industry.

“Since Lexaria began working on this technology in 2014, DehydraTECH has developed considerably and impacted the industry. So far, it has proven useful for potentially treating hypertension, along with the delivery of colchicine, a drug with known SARS-CoV-2 anti-viral properties,” reads a recent article. “DehydraTECH is applied by incorporating an intermediate step in the formulation and manufacturing of existing or orally ingestible and topical products. This is a crucial step that entails mixing the active ingredients as a delivery ‘payload’ with specific fatty acids and infusing the mixture into a substrate material. The next step involves using a controlled dehydration synthesis processing to associate the payload and fatty acids together at a molecular level before integrating the newly combined molecules into end-product production across various dosage form factors. From a commercial standpoint, Lexaria’s technology is proving to provide an additional layer that companies that offer consumer supplements, prescription, and non-prescription-based drugs, cannabis, and nicotine products can use to improve the effectiveness of both new and existing products.”
