Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP), a biosciences company that has developed delivery technologies to improve absorption of bioactive compounds, this morning announced that it has filed a new patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) covering the use of its DehydraTECH™ technology for the delivery of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. Existing products occupying this space include Viagra™ (sildenafil) and Cialis™ (tadalafil). Per the update, a common complaint regarding existing PDE5 inhibitors relates to the slow-acting nature of the substances. Lexaria believes that its patented DehydraTECH™ technology, building on existing research with cannabinoid delivery, will allow for faster-acting treatments in many cases utilizing lower dosage quantities. Separately, Lexaria this morning announced that a number of existing stock options and warrants have been exercised, with the company receiving a total of $69,736.50 from the transaction.
