Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, is reporting additional positive interim results from its human pilot study evaluating DehydraTECH(TM) technology for the oral delivery of the glucagon-like peptide-1 (“GLP-1”) drug semaglutide, available commercially as Rybelsus(R). According to the report, DehydraTECH-powered semaglutide sustained lower levels of blood glucose from baseline including nearly 10 times lower after 24 hours as well as lower blood-glucose spikes after eating. The company noted that this was the first-ever DehydraTECH test with a “large molecule” drug. According to the report, the study was conducted by a prominent university research center comparing a single 7 mg semaglutide dose of a Rybelsus tablet (the control dose) to a matching dose from Rybelsus that had been compound formulated in capsule form using Lexaria’s DehydraTECH processing technology enhancements. Specifically, the control group showed reduced blood glucose levels by between 1.3% and 6.7% relative to the time zero baseline during the first 100 minutes of the study with the DehydraTECH GLP-1 group indicating reduced blood glucose levels by between 2.9% and 14.6% relative to baseline during that same timeframe; the report noted that even 24 hours after dose administration, the blood glucose levels were reduced in the DehydraTECH GLP-1 group by 6.3% relative to baseline while the blood glucose level evidenced in the control group was only reduced by 0.67%, evidencing nearly a tenfold improvement with the DehydraTECH GLP-1. DehydraTECH is a patented drug delivery formulation and processing platform technology. Lexaria developed the technology and is evaluating it for a variety of beneficial molecules. The formulation is designed to improve the way active molecules enter the bloodstream upon oral ingestion.
