LEXX reported results from the nicotine absorption study
On Tuesday, LEXX reported that its recent oral nicotine absorption study, namely NIC-A21-1, has revealed that DehydraTECHTM-nicotine, which is delivered via the oral pouch product format, requires merely 2-4 minutes to deliver the nicotine levels in the blood plasma as compared to the levels achieved at 45 minutes with concentration-matched control. The DehydraTECH-nicotine also showed statistically significant peak blood plasma levels, up to 10 times higher than the control while still clearing from the blood virtually as quickly as the controls. The company said that it believes the findings would support the world’s fastest-acting nicotine oral mucosal absorption, which ultimately would offer the safer nicotine alternative to the more than 1 billion smokers worldwide. The study was conducted by a leading independent testing laboratory in the United States. It utilized Lexaria’s recently developed, advanced “DehydraTECH 2.0” nicotine formulations.
