Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP), an innovative biotechnology company, has set its sights on using its proprietary drug delivery technology to provide an alternative method of nicotine ingestion that is safer than smoking. An article further discussing the company reads, “The technology, known as DehydraTECH(TM), is a patented, cost-effective delivery mechanism that has been shown to improve the ingestibility of cannabinoids, vitamins, nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and nicotine. Now, Lexaria has partnered with one of the world’s largest tobacco firms to develop new, reduced-risk, oral nicotine products using the technology (http://ibn.fm/pddAe). . . . The deal funds Lexaria’s R&D program — and consumer product development — in exchange for certain DehydraTECH license rights and a minority equity interest in Lexaria Nicotine, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lexaria Bioscience Corp. An initial tranche of $1 million has been provided, with additional phases providing up to $12 million total. Lexaria has granted a license for its technology to be used in nicotine-based, oral-format products on an exclusive basis in the United States and a nonexclusive basis elsewhere globally, for which it will receive royalties on every dollar of revenue generated utilizing its technology.”
