Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, is starting a new study program — DEM-A22-1 — on Nov. 15, 2022. The study, a first for Lexaria, will evaluate whether LEXX’s DehydraTECH-processed cannabidiol (“CBD”) may have potential for therapeutic treatment for dementia. According to the announcement, Lexaria has previously shown the efficacy of DehydraTECH-CBD in studies focused on human hypertension; the studies showed no serious side effects. Lexaria is exploring the potential for dementia based on previous clinical studies that have established connections between hypertension and dementia: specifically, that individuals who have high blood pressure are more likely to develop vascular dementia, which is the second most common form of dementia following Alzheimer’s disease. The new study is a dose-ranging, two-month program evaluating a total of 32 Long Evans rats, which will receive DehydraTECH-CBD. The study will be conducted by a Canada-based, leading, third-party testing lab and is scheduled to be complete by end of January 2023. Additional studies may follow, depending on the results of this first program. Lexaria will provide updates from this study as they become available.
