Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCQX:LXRP) (CSE:LXX), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, has received its ninth US patent.

In a statement Tuesday, the company said the new patent provides patent claims that protect the use of its DehydraTECH technology together with cannabinoids, nicotine, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or vitamins in mix-and-serve beverage formats. 

The patent is entitled "Food and Beverage Compositions Infused With Lipophilic Active Agents and Methods of Use Thereof” -- and signifies another addition to Lexaria's first patent family.

Lexaria said it has also responded to patent office queries in Europe, India, Mexico, Australia, US, Japan and Canada in recent weeks. However, the company does not expect all its applications to be successful but is optimistic of additional patent grants in some of these locations soon.

Lexaria currently has 17 granted patents, with eight in Australia and the nine in the US, along with roughly 60 patent applications pending throughout the world. 

The granted patents cover the delivery of cannabinoids, NSAIDs, nicotine and fat-soluble vitamins. The company said patents are pending for the delivery of antiviral drugs, human hormones such as testosterone and estrogen, phosphodiesterase inhibitors and more.

The Kelowna, British Columbia-based Lexaria has developed and markets DehydraTECH, which masks unwanted tastes, improves onset speed and increases the bioavailability of active pharmaceutical ingredients in a simple and cost-effective platform.
