VALBIOTIS to Present Novel Data about TOTUM-63 and Metabolic Diseases Prevention at the 2019 Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association
VALBIOTIS (Paris:ALVAL) (FR0013254851 – ALVAL / PEA/SME eligible), a French Research & Development company committed to scientific innovation for the treatment and prevention of metabolic diseases, today announced that new preclinical results of TOTUM-63 obtained independently by Leiden University (Netherlands) will be presented at the 2019 scientific sessions of the American Diabetes Association, being held from June 7 to 11 in San Francisco, California. In a murine model of prediabetes, TOTUM-63 reduced inflammation in visceral adipose tissue, one of the pathophysiological mechanisms of metabolic diseases, especially type 2 diabetes. Moreover, this study also confirmed the efficacy of TOTUM-63 on sugar and lipid metabolism in this preclinical model.
"This study from Leiden University is important from a scientific standpoint: it demonstrates a new effect of TOTUM-63, the active substance of lead product candidate VALEDIA ® , on visceral adipose tissue inflammation that enriches the multi-target mode of action of TOTUM-63. On the clinical side, as previously announced, we expect to report the results of the international Phase IIA clinical study of VALEDIA ® before July 31 st ," comments Sébastien PELTIER, CEO of VALBIOTIS.
Anti-inflammatory action on visceral adipose tissue
"Obesity, in both humans and mice, leads to an increase and an activation of macrophages in visceral adipose tissue. These immune cells are involved in maintaining a silent metabolic inflammation, thus reducing the body's ability to use insulin. By reducing this inflammation and increasing insulin sensitivity in adipose tissue, TOTUM-63, the active substance of VALEDIA ® , would contribute to the reduction of the release of lipids into the bloodstream," specifies Dr. Bruno GUIGAS, researcher at Leiden University (Netherlands), the lead investigator of the study.
The discovery of this new effect further enriches the multi-target mode of action of TOTUM-63, which was presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) congress in 2018. This mode of action would already combine the preservation of the pancreas, the improvement of insulin signaling in the muscle and the adipose tissue, the reduction in hepatic steatosis and an improved composition of the intestinal microbiota.
About TOTUM-63, the active substance of VALEDIA ®
Prediabetes is a growing public health issue worldwide that has been acknowledged by international organizations. Without appropriate management, 70% to 90% of prediabetic subjects will develop type 2 diabetes.

The launch of VALEDIA® is planned for 2021, with a health claim for reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.
TOTUM-63 has already been proven safe and effective in healthy human volunteers during a Phase I/II clinical study. The results of the first international Phase IIA study are expected before 31 July 2019.

Misinformation, Lack of Access and Confusion Hamper the Ability of Smokers Who Don’t Quit to Consider Better Alternatives, a New International Study from PMI Shows20.8.2019 04:02:00 CEST | Press release
Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI) (NYSE:PM) today released a white paper titled “Unsmoke: Clearing the Way for Change” based on findings from a major international study conducted for the company by independent research firm Povaddo. There is no question that, while the best choice is to quit cigarettes and nicotine altogether, the reality is that many people don’t. The survey—conducted in 13 countries among adults aged 21 to 74—forms the basis of the paper’s exploration around two core themes: the impact of smoking on personal relationships and the lack of information available about smoke-free products. It reveals some of the barriers that might be preventing smokers from considering smoke-free alternatives over continued smoking. “There is currently a tremendous amount of misinformation circulating about smoke-free products, and this is causing confusion. It is one of the biggest hurdles the world faces in becoming smoke-free,” said Jacek Olczak, chief operating officer at PMI.
