Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX), a biotechnology company focusing its attention and resources on pursuing the enhancement of the bioavailability of a diverse and broad range of active pharmaceutical ingredients, developed the patented DehydraTECH(TM) drug delivery technology. “The company has evidenced, through in-vivo, in-vitro and pre-clinical testing, that DehydraTECH delivers more APIs at a faster rate than controls, enabling more effective drug absorption. The testing has so far involved APIs such as cannabidiol (‘CBD’), PDE5 inhibitors, antiviral drugs, and nicotine, each at different stages of product development. This DehydraTECH pipeline, Lexaria says, is addressing severe unmet patient needs. Its DehydraTECH-CBD compound, for example, specifically targets the hypertension space,” reads a recent article. “In the U.S., about 47% of adults, or 116 million people, have hypertension, with only about 24% having the condition under control, while globally, hypertension affects more than 1 billion people, or about 30% of the adult population… Heightened blood pressure has several consequences, including the fact that it makes arteries less elastic, effectively damaging them. This damage, in turn, decreases the blood flow and oxygen to the heart, leading to heart disease. The decreased blood flow also increases the risk of stroke. In extreme cases, hypertension causes death.”
