Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, is planning to submit an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) in the next 45 days. The application is for the company’s planned U.S. phase 1b Hypertension Clinical Trial. The filing had been delayed for necessary documentation from a raw material supplier, which is now being provided, enabling Lexaria to finalize the IND application. According to the announcement, the supplier anticipates providing the final two pieces of outstanding information to the FDA within the next 45 days, after which Lexaria can proceed with filing the IND application. The trial, which is titled “A Phase 1b Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of DehydraTECH-CBD(TM) in Subjects with Stage 1 or Stage 2 Hypertension,” is designed to evaluate safety and tolerability in hypertensive patients. Secondary objectives of the study will include efficacy evaluation in reducing blood pressure together with detailed pharmacokinetic testing. “Lexaria feels confident, given that from 2018 through 2022 it has previously conducted five human clinical trials studying DehydraTECH-CBD in an aggregate total of 134 people, without recording a single serious adverse event, that it’s proposed phase 1b study plan will not expose test subjects to unreasonable risk,” the company stated in the press release. “Lexaria looks forward to submitting this important IND filing and hopes that the review process proceeds smoothly toward effectiveness in the subsequent 30 day period allotted by the FDA.”
