Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW) is a global innovator in drug delivery platforms. The company today issued information to its stakeholders as an aid to conveniently research and understand various non-affiliated third-party sources and their methodologies for valuing biotech and pharmaceutical companies. “Biotech companies with little to no revenue can still be worth billions,” Raphael Rottgen, CFA, FRM, was quoted in the press release. “While valuations can be extremely low or extremely high, there is often underlying logic in identifying risks and arriving at those valuations. Developing new drugs can have significant costs of over $1 billion and can take as long as 10 to 15 years to reach the market.”
The announcement clarifies that Lexaria’s DehydraTECH-CBD for hypertension program is currently operating within step three of five of the drug development process according to descriptions from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). Under this step, various human studies seek to evidence both tolerability/safety as well as efficacy for intended purposes. Of the 5,000 – 10,000 compounds examined and tested in the discovery phase, not more than about 250 successfully complete the preclinical research step. Lexaria’s DehydraTECH-CBD is among those successes, having already reached and surpassed the preclinical research stage.
