MissionIRNewsBreaks – Lexaria Bioscience Corp.’s (NASDAQ: LEXX) 24th Patent Sets the Stage for New Market Opportunities in Australia

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, celebrated the receipt of its 24th granted patent entitled “Compositions Infused with Nicotine Compounds and Methods of Use Thereof.” Granted in Australia, this is the first patent awarded from the company’s 8th patent family. “The new patent expands on the company’s international IP rights to apply DehydraTECH(TM) technology to most forms of nicotine, namely sprays, gums, lozenges, pouches, capsules, tablets, and pills. It also covers multiple disparate forms of nicotine, including polymer resins of nicotine, freebase nicotine and other nicotine complexes,” reads a recent article. Prior to the award of the 24th patent, Lexaria already had a patent granted in Australia to use DehydraTECH-processed cannabidiol (“CBD”) to potentially treat heart disease. “Thus, the new Australian patent covering the use of DehydraTECH-nicotine builds on the existing IP protection there and sets the stage for the company to exploit nicotine- and CBD-oriented opportunities within this market.”
