Category: News

Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, has received two new patent awards, bringing the company’s patent portfolio to 43 granted patents worldwide. According to the announcement, the company has been granted a patent in its patent family #21, “Compositions and Methods for Treating Hypertension.” The company noted that this is the third granted U.S. patent in this category and is regarding the company’s DehydraTECH(TM)-processed cannabidiol (“CBD”) and evidence of its ability to lower blood pressure in both acute dosing in hypertension as well as during a five-week study duration. In addition, Lexaria has received a granted patent in Lexaria’s patent family #24, “Compositions and Methods for Treating Epilepsy,” which is also the third granted U.S. patent in this patent category. This patent is also related to DehydraTECH-CBD and is regarding its potential to mitigate epileptic seizures in rodents while also being absorbed into the bloodstream more effectively than a current commercially available, cannabinoid-based anti-seizure medication. Both patents will expire in 2042 if not extended.
