CannabisNewsBreaks – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) Completes Dosing in Second GLP-1 Human Pilot Study

Company: Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LEXX)
Category: News

Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, today announced that human pilot study #2, GLP-1-H24-2, has now completed all dosing. The final DehydraTECH study arm used a Rybelsus(R) composition processed with DehydraTECH that is compliant with the FDA’s Inactive Ingredient Database (“FDA IID”), delivered within an in-mouth dissolvable tablet. According to the announcement, this will be the first study designed to investigate whether DehydraTECH-enhanced semaglutide can absorb at any level systemically through the sublingual/buccal tissues of the mouth and throat with fewer side effects than from swallowed administration, and with some effective drug delivery into the bloodstream. “Lexaria is delighted that our contracted clinical research organization was able to complete the active phase of the study on schedule,” said Lexaria CEO Chris Bunka. “The results of this study are expected to validate our earlier work with semaglutide, and also to discover whether it is possible to achieve any absorption of this market-leading GLP-1 drug through the tissues of the mouth.”
