Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP) (CSE:LXX) told investors it has filed a new patent in the US concerning the use of its DehydraTECH technology to deliver antiviral drugs, which could help in the global fight against coronavirus (COVID-19). “Lexaria’s proprietary drug delivery platform has already proven its effectiveness in the oral delivery of other lipophilic drugs such as nicotine, cannabinoids, and more, with multi-fold increases in both the rate and extent of bioabsorption,” noted John Docherty, the president of the biotech company in a statement.

CanaFarma Hemp Products Corp (CSE:CNFA) is launching a new hemp oil infused cream for joint and muscle support. The product will be launched under the New York-based company’s YOOFORIC brand, which also markets hemp oil-infused chewing gum. YOOFORIC’s cream will help combat inflammation, chronic joint pain and muscle soreness using premium ingredients delivered in a gel-like format.

Nemaura Medical Inc (NASDAQ:NMRD), which is commercializing its sugarBEAT non-invasive and flexible continuous glucose monitor, has secured a 24-month, $5 million non-convertible loan. The loan does not include warrants or other equity securities, the company said in a statement Tuesday. “This loan strengthens our financial position without diluting shareholders, and provides additional resources to accelerate our commercial strategy for sugarBEAT in Europe, as well as support our planned launch of proBEAT in the USA,” said CEO Dr Faz Chowdhury. “We appreciate the favorable terms and strong support from our lender, Chicago Venture Partners.”

Internet of Things Inc (CVE:ITT) (OTCMKTS:INOTF) said it has closed a previously announced non-brokered private placing, raising gross proceeds of C$1.25 million. The Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI)-focused tech group said the proceeds will be used for business development and sales (C$250,000), corporate pivot and product development of new artificial intelligence verticals (C$225,000) and general working capital. The group issued 125 million units at C$0.01 each, with each unit comprising one common share and one share purchase warrant.

Media Central Corporation Inc (CSE:FLYY) said Tuesday that it was beta-launching, a dynamic digital news and culture destination for e-gaming and esports fans. Simply by leveraging the Toronto-based company’s flagship publications NOW Magazine and Georgia Straight, ECentralSports will enter the market with access to 6.5 million readers and the support of award-winning editors and writers.

Codebase Ventures Inc (CSE:CODE) (OTCQB:BKLLF) has issued a second update to investors this week regarding its pending acquisition of a company that owns the rights to a provisional patent for a hydroxychloroquine patch – a transdermal delivery method that could curb the side effects associated with using the drug to treat the coronavirus (COVID-19). Hydroxychloroquine has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. It has been highlighted by some — including President Trump — as a possible coronavirus treatment. However, in its oral tablet form, side effects can include headache, dizziness, diarrhea, vomiting, blurred vision, and arrhythmia. However, delivering the drug through the skin regulates its dosage, improving patient compliance and outcomes, the company said. Less of the active ingredient needs to be administered and, because it bypasses the gastrointestinal tract, side effects are mitigated.

eWellness Healthcare Corporation (OTCQB:EWLL) announced Tuesday that its PHIZIO digital physical therapy platform is on pace to treat more than 300,000 patients in the US and Canada in 2020.  Usage of the company’s telehealth platform has surged as many physical therapists (PTs) are currently unable to meet with patients in person due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Telemedicine options like eWellness’ PHIZIO program allow them to provide assessment and treatment in real-time using a smartphone or laptop. Through an interactive video chat, physicians are able to prescribe and monitor patients’ home exercises — all while working from home themselves.

Great Panther Mining Limited (TSX:GPR) (NYSEAMERICAN:GPL) has named Rob Henderson as its new CEO while making other changes to its board and senior management team. Henderson, who started his new role on Tuesday, was most recently, he was president and CEO of Amerigo Resources LTD (CVE:ARG), a copper producer with assets in Chile. In addition to the new CEO appointment, the company said its board has appointed David Garofalo as incoming chairman, effective immediately. Great Panther said Jeffery Mason has stepped down as CEO and resigned from the board – which he also chaired since 2019 - but will continue to provide consulting services to the company to ensure a smooth transition of the executive duties to Henderson.

Group Eleven Resources Corp (CVE:ZNG) (OTCMKTS:GRLVF) has revealed that drilling will kick off at its PG West and Stonepark projects in Ireland in May and August, respectively, this year subject to any coronavirus restrictions, and added that the company’s aim was to become more nimble and focused.
