Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, is reporting results from its 2023 human oral nicotine study NIC-H22-1. The study compared Lexaria’s DehydraTECH(TM)-Nicotine tobacco-free pouch to two world-leading brands: ZYN(R) and on!(R) ZYN(R) is from Swedish Match and on! comes from Altria Group Inc. subsidiary Helix Innovations LLC. According to the report, DehydraTECH-Nicotine reached maximum blood saturation levels faster than either of the two other brands. In addition, superior subjective performance characteristics were observed in the study. Specifically, Lexaria’s oral nicotine pouch was significantly faster in the median time required to reach comparable maximum nicotine concentrations within the bloodstream than both on! and ZYN, 15% faster and 20.2% faster respectively. According to the announcement, the next step for the company is to seek to commercialize DehydraTECH-Nicotine with suitable industry partners based on its clinical and intellectual property advancements.
“With just five short years of R&D and product development, Lexaria has been able to develop an oral nicotine product that meets or exceeds the performance of the world’s leading existing brands,” said Lexaria Bioscience CEO Chris Bunka in the press release. “This is a remarkable achievement that speaks to the capabilities of the DehydraTECH technology and also to the Lexaria R&D team, working ardently with scarce resources relative to global multi-billion-dollar behemoths. We’ve always had an overwhelming determination and fierce conviction that we can make the world a better place and reduce the carnage caused by smoked cigarettes, and now we have human study data that demonstrates advantages of DehydraTECH processed nicotine relative to the competitive landscape.”
