NetworkNewsWire Announces Publication on Good News in Biotech Advancements Through Cannabis Delivery Technology

/EIN News/ -- NEW YORK, April 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkWire – NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE:LXX) (OTCQX:LXRP), a client of NNW that has developed and out-licenses its disruptive patented technology that promotes healthier ingestion methods, lower overall dosing and higher effectiveness of lipophilic active molecules.

Lexaria’s ingestible nicotine study using DehydraTECH delivered nicotine to the bloodstream within 15 minutes, provided an increased gain of 148 percent of peak nicotine to the bloodstream and produced 560 percent higher brain levels of nicotine, where the nicotine’s effects are focused. Lower urine levels of nicotine were also noted, signifying enhanced nicotine activity and bioavailability, and lower quantities of key liver metabolites were found in the bloodstream, suggesting bypass of first liver metabolism. Together, these findings suggest a prolongation of nicotine effectiveness with the Lexaria formulation, which may also be beneficial in controlling cravings over an extended time period from a single edible nicotine dose.

All of this is good news for Lexaria and its proprietary technology. The findings also prompt the question of whether the technology could be used to help reduce unwanted side effects common to many other drugs. Ibuprofen, for instance, can cause uncontrolled gastric bleeding and issues relating to liver and kidney disease. While further analysis and testing is required, Lexaria President John Docherty said that researchers are intrigued with the nicotine study results.

“We are very pleased with these topline study findings demonstrating excellent tolerability and substantially faster, more potent and bioavailable absorption of nicotine in an ingestible format with our DehydraTECH technology than controls,” Docherty said in the news release announcing the results. “This data supports further investigation of the many possible benefits of our DehydraTECH technology for nicotine delivery with potential both as a nicotine replacement therapy as well as an alternative product format for regular tobacco users over today’s inhaled options.”
