Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, has reported positive findings in its recent animal study. The study was designed to evaluate LEXX’s proprietary DehydraTECH(TM) processing of the phosphodiesterase inhibitor (“PDE5 inhibitor”) sildenafil for potential use in the management of erectile dysfunction. According to the company, the DehydraTECHsildenafil delivered 74% more drug at four minutes than the concentration-matched, generic control formulation with faster and higher overall delivery of sildenafil into the bloodstream evidenced over the course of the study. The most recognizable sildenafil product available currently is Viagra(R), but some users find it slow to act. Lexaria hopes the recent study findings lead to the development of faster, better-acting sildenafil oral formulations. The animal study was conducted at a third-party independent laboratory located in the United States and involved 20 male Sprague-Dawley rats (two groups of 10 rats each) being treated with a single dose of the DehydraTECH-sildenafil and Control-sildenafil formulations.

About Lexaria Bioscience Corp.
Lexaria Bioscience’s patented drug-delivery technology, DehydraTECH(TM), improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”) enter the bloodstream by promoting more effective oral delivery.

The delivery systems are also being evaluated for orally administered, antiviral drugs; nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (“NSAIDs”); PDE5 inhibitors; and more. DehydraTECH has also evidenced an ability to deliver some drugs more effectively across the blood brain barrier.
