Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) recently announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Lexaria Nicotine LLC, has joined forces with one of the world’s largest tobacco companies to fund the research and development of Lexaria’s patented DehydraTECH technology to potentially commercialize a form of oral nicotine delivery. An article discussing the company reads, “Lexaria’s goal is to create an oral product that eliminates the need for inhalation and helps curb the smoking habits of consumers. Over 6 million deaths a year worldwide are attributed to nicotine delivery through smoking. The company believes that its DehydraTECH technology may help the 69 percent of U.S. adult smokers who want to quit move from cigarettes to a safer, more effective delivery of nicotine (http://nnw.fm/4RGjQ). This new partnership allows for further research and development into oral, reduced-risk nicotine consumer products.”
