Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, today announced it is formally beginning the process towards an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application filing with the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). The IND filing is for Lexaria’s DehydraTECH-processed cannabidiol (“DehydraTECH-CBD”) as a prospective registered pharmaceutical treatment for hypertension. The company has retained the services of an expert regulatory affairs and quality assurance consultancy group to assist in preparing Lexaria for a pre-IND meeting with the FDA, as well as with designing the necessary non-clinical, clinical and related product development IND-enabling work to be completed in advance of the IND filing. The new IND-enabling program is made possible through successfully completed studies that have shown that DehydraTECH-CBD demonstrates superior bioabsorption upon oral administration and is effective at reducing blood pressure with no significant unwanted side effects.
