Lexaria to Examine Potential Role of DehydraTECH-CBD in Diabetes Control and Weight Loss
Lexaria Bioscience (Nasdaq:LEXX) will initiate a human clinical study to investigate the potential role of its proprietary DehydraTECH-CBD in diabetes control and weight loss. Lexaria has previously demonstrated lowered blood glucose, triglyceride and blood urea nitrogen levels, and lowered overall body weight in two separate studies of obese diabetic-conditioned animals.
Study design is currently underway, and Lexaria intends to conduct the study at the same medical research hospital in Europe that it has utilized for its recent human clinical hypertension studies.
- Lexaria intends to use a cost-effective approach to complete research at a fraction of the cost of US-based registered study programs.
- The company hopes to determine whether DehydraTECH-CBD might be effective in blood-sugar control in humans, and its potential for the treatment of diabetes and its complications.
- DehydraTECH is a patented drug delivery formulation and processing platform technology that is designed to improve the way active molecules enter the bloodstream upon oral ingestion.
