Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, today unveiled a comprehensive planned applied research program to thoroughly evaluate DehydraTECH for the improved delivery of GLP-1 drugs, designed to support prospective commercial partnering with global pharmaceutical companies. In a recent human pilot study with seven volunteers, Lexaria demonstrated superior pharmacokinetic (“PK”) oral delivery performance of the DehydraTECH-enhanced glucagon-like peptide-1 (“GLP-1”) drug semaglutide, available commercially in the branded product Rybelsus(R). The positive results were sufficient to encourage a much more thorough and expanded investigation. The objective of the new planned studies, as detailed in the announcement, is to help determine the commercial applicability of DehydraTECH to at least three GLP-1 drugs (semaglutide, liraglutide and tirzepatide), which together produced billions in revenue to their owners as reported in recent financial statements.
