Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Receives Extensive Patent Allowance from USPTO

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP), a drug delivery platform innovator, announced late yesterday that it has received a new Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) related to the use of its innovative DehydraTECH™ technology as a delivery platform for the full list of active pharmacological ingredients requested, including all cannabinoids, fat-soluble vitamins, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pain medications (“NSAIDs”) and nicotine. The company expects formal patent issuance within three to four months, with provided protections extending through 2035 or later. “This wide-ranging patent allowance from the USPTO exceeds our expectations,” Chris Bunka, chief executive officer of Lexaria, stated in the news release. “This vastly expanded intellectual property protection will enable us to aggressively pursue new business opportunities in 2018 such as what could be the world’s first nicotine edibles for the smokeless tobacco industry, or enhanced products for NSAID-derived pain management, as well as in the rapidly growing cannabis market.”
