Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is the global innovator behind the patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology. DehydraTECH increases the effectiveness of lipophilic (fat-soluble) drugs and active ingredients and improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients enter the bloodstream. It speeds up delivery, increases bioavailability, increases brain absorption, improves drug potency, reduces drug administration cost and masks unwanted taste. A recent article reads, “Lexaria licenses its technology to other companies around the world to offer consumers the best possible performance across an array of ingestible product formats. The company’s technology is best thought of as an additional layer that providers of consumer supplements, prescription and non-prescription drugs, nicotine and CBD products can utilize to improve the effectiveness of their own existing or planned new offerings.” Led by an experienced management team, Lexaria is focusing its ongoing research and development efforts on developing product candidates across several key billion-dollar segments: oral cannabinoids, antivirals, oral mucosal nicotine, human hormones, ibuprofen and Naproxen, and vitamin D3. The antivirals segment, for example, is “an estimated $52.1 billion market in 2021 that’s expected to grow to $66.7 billion by 2025.”

About Lexaria Bioscience Corp.
Lexaria Bioscience’s proprietary drug-delivery technology, DehydraTECH(TM), improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”) enter the bloodstream by promoting healthier oral ingestion methods and increasing the effectiveness of fat-soluble active molecules, thereby lowering overall dosing. The company’s technology can be applied to many different ingestible product formats including foods, beverages, oral suspensions, tablets and capsules. DehydraTECH has repeatedly demonstrated, since 2016 with cannabinoids and nicotine, the ability to increase bioabsorption by up to 5 to 10x, reduce onset time of one to two hours to minutes, and mask unwanted tastes; DehydraTECH is also planned to be further evaluated for orally administered bioactive molecules, including antivirals, cannabinoids, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (“NSAIDs”) and nicotine. Lexaria has licensed DehydraTECH to multiple companies, including a world-leading tobacco producer for the development of smokeless, oral-based nicotine products and for use in industries that produce cannabinoid beverages, edibles and oral products. Lexaria operates a licensed in-house research laboratory and holds a robust intellectual property portfolio with 19 patents granted and approximately 60 patents pending worldwide.
