Lexaria Wins Strategically Important US Patent in Nicotine Space

Global innovator in drug delivery platforms, Lexaria Bioscience (Nasdaq: LEXX), has been granted a strategically important new patent in the oral nicotine sector by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The company’s share price rose nearly 20% following the news.

DehydraTECH-nicotine has shown in multiple animal studies that it can be delivered to the bloodstream up to 10-times to 20-times faster at up to 10-fold higher levels of nicotine into blood plasma from oral absorption than concentration matched controls.


Lexaria’s new patent builds upon its growing patent portfolio in the oral nicotine delivery sector, including the white pouch category for both sublingual and buccal tissue delivery.

The oral nicotine pouch delivery method avoids harmful lung outcomes experienced by smokers or vapers, and involves buccal absorption of purified nicotine that has been separated from most other harmful compounds in the tobacco leaf.

Lexaria’s DehydraTECH-powered purified nicotine white pouch formulation contains no tobacco.DehydraTECH-nicotine is now patent granted for oral nicotine delivery in the U.S., Canada and Australia, and pending in numerous other countries.

The global market for the oral nicotine pouch category was $4.69 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $11.91 billion in 2029.
