Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, today announced that its diabetes animal model study DIAB-A22-1 has completed and produced at least three positive outcomes including weight loss in obese diabetic-conditioned animals, together with improved triglyceride and cholesterol levels. According to the update, the study evidenced, at times, dramatic changes in body weight, general activity and triglyceride and cholesterol levels associated with administration of DehydraTECH-CBD. The findings align well with other study work in animals that points to the known anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of CBD functioning to lessen some of the essential pathophysiological factors associated with diabetes. Pleased that relatively low doses of DehydraTECH-CBD seem to support real improvements in the day-to-day health of the lab animals, Lexaria is encouraged by the positive findings from its first study of DehydraTECH-CBD in this diabetes animal model. The findings indicate many prospective benefits worthy of further investigation, perhaps together with other drugs that further help to control glucose levels directly.
