Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, today announced additional findings from last year’s human clinical study HYPER-H21-4. The findings demonstrate significant reductions in several pro-inflammatory biomarkers known to be linked to cardiovascular disease (“CVD”) and a host of other conditions. “There is some pre-clinical evidence for the anti-inflammatory actions of CBD, but this is likely the most convincing evidence in humans that I have ever seen,” said Dr. Philip Ainslie, cardiovascular advisor to Lexaria and lead investigator of the HYPER-H21-4 study. “The bigger picture is that inflammation is the key basis of atherosclerosis, and several pro-inflammatory agents have been examined as potential mediators of the biochemical pathways of lesion formation. Other ‘common’ diseases or disorders associated with chronic inflammation include fatty liver disease; type 1 & 2 diabetes mellitus; inflammatory bowel disease; asthma; lung diseases chronic kidney disease; rheumatoid arthritis and obesity. Part of the reason why many of these diseases lead to cardiovascular disease is via chronic inflammation.”
