Lexaria Bioscience' Tech Processed Cannabidiol Receives Positive FDA Feedback For Hypertension
  • Lexaria Bioscience Corp LEXX has received a positive full written response from the FDA from its pre-Investigational New Drug (Pre-IND) meeting regarding DehydraTECH-CBD for hypertension.
  • The FDA confirmed that it agreed with Lexaria's proposal to pursue a 505(b)(2) new drug application regulatory pathway for its program.
  • The pathway is advantageous because this abbreviated pathway, as it is often described, typically enables a faster route to commercial approval than the traditional 505(b)(1) pathway.

  • Lexaria remains on track to file its full IND application with the FDA by late 2022 / early 2023.
