Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, today announced that its recent oral nicotine absorption study NIC-A21-1 revealed that DehydraTECH(TM)-nicotine delivered via the oral pouch product format required only two to four minutes to deliver nicotine levels in blood plasma comparable to levels achieved at 45 minutes with concentration-matched controls. In addition, DehydraTECH-nicotine reached statistically significant peak blood plasma levels up to 10-fold higher overall than controls (p=0.004) while still clearing from blood virtually as quickly as the controls. “We are extremely pleased with the performance of our latest DehydraTECH-2.0 nicotine oral pouch formulations in this study,” said Chris Bunka, CEO of Lexaria. “Our technology was ten to twenty times faster in delivering comparable levels of nicotine into bloodstream than the peak of the concentration-matched controls and went on to far exceed their total delivery, which should provide much greater consumer satisfaction. Performance gains of this magnitude could be of great significance in enabling the oral pouch product category to offer improved nicotine satiety and effectiveness, with a goal of one day rendering pulmonary administration practices like smoking and vaping as obsolete.”
