InvestorNewsBreaks – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) Reports Weight-Loss Results in Animal Study, Begins Eight-Week Follow-Up Study

Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, is reporting glucose reduction and weight-loss results in a testing of its wholly owned and patented DehydraTECH-CBD formulation. According to the announcement, when administered to rodents in an eight-week study, DehydraTech-CBD resulted in weight loss of 7% and a reduction of 19.9% (p<0.05) in blood glucose. As a result, Lexaria has now signed contracts to begin a large, multiweek animal study that will substantially progress its DehydraTECH-GLP-1 and DehydraTECH-CBD weight-loss investigations. In addition, the announcement also noted that the company had published results of a human study, which showed that a single 7 mg semaglutide dose from Rybelsus(R) processed with DehydraTECH, was absorbed at a significantly higher level than without DehydraTECH processing; results of that testing showed that the treatment also managed blood glucose levels more effectively without any blood glucose spiking after eating.

“Together, these discoveries strongly support additional investigations, including determining whether daily dosing of DehydraTECH-GLP-1 might result in sustained higher concentrations of GLP-1 in blood over an extended treatment duration than without DehydraTECH processing and whether such a higher blood concentration might result in greater weight loss over time; and determining whether DehydraTECH-CBD, specially formulated for diabetes control and weight loss, alone and/or in conjunction with DehydraTECH-GLP-1, might also result in greater weight loss and/or blood glucose control over time,” said the company in the press release. “Manufacturing of the test articles for 8 of the 12 arms of the new animal study has already been completed, and dosing in those arms will commence as soon as the third-party laboratory is able to do so, expected to begin within 45 days.”
