Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, was featured in an interview produced by PCG Digital Holdings LLC and published on NewMediaWire. John Docherty, Lexaria’s president and head of research, discussed the company’s efforts to investigate the potential therapeutic utility of its proprietary DehydraTECH(TM)-CBD against dementia and diabetes, two of the world’s largest public health crises. Lexaria recently demonstrated DehydraTECH-CBD’s exceptional safety and tolerability in a human hypertension study, as well as statistically significant lowering of blood pressure over multiple weeks (something that previous studies by others have failed to evidence). Strong connections exist between hypertension, dementia and diabetes. “Hypertension and dementia are linked. Clinical studies have shown that individuals who have high blood pressure are more likely to develop vascular dementia. Similarly, there are strong connections between heart disease, hypertension and diabetes. Hypertension is twice as frequent in diabetics, and hypertensive patients are at greater risk of developing diabetes,” Docherty said. “We are excited to investigate whether DehydraTECH-CBD has a potential application in the treatment of dementia and diabetes based on its propensity to cross the blood-brain barrier, the fact that DehydraTECH-CBD lowers human blood pressure and the fact that CBD is known to have vasodilatory, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.”
