Valbiotis Announces the Publication of the First Scientific Papers on TOTUM•63 in Three International Journals, Elucidating Its Multitarget Mode of Action
Valbiotis (FR0013254851 – ALVAL, PEA / SME eligible), a Research and Development company committed to scientific innovation for preventing and combating metabolic diseases, announces the first publication of preclinical and clinical Phase I/II data on TOTUM•63 in three peer-reviewed international scientific journals: the American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism, the International Journal of Obesity and Nutrients. These papers bring together a first set of results from the development of this active substance for the reduction of the risk of type 2 diabetes. They represent a first and comprehensive elucidation of mechanisms of action, to prepare for further scientific communications as part of a strategy of TOTUM•63, developed in collaboration with Nestlé Health Science as part of the global strategic partnership. This plan includes the publication of all TOTUM•63 preclinical and clinical results to accompany subsequent marketing of this active substance.
Pascal SIRVENT, Chief Scientific Officer, member of the Valbiotis Board of Directors, comments: ‘These three publications by leading journals constitute a major scientific recognition of our R&D work on TOTUM•63 for the prevention of type 2 diabetes. They represent a very powerful endorsement of the TOTUM•63 results, already presented at international congresses, on carbohydrate homeostasis and weight, on the pleiotropic mode of action of this active substance on several tissues, and on its safety of use. New preclinical data on the benefit of TOTUM•63 in combination with physical activity has also been published. This first publishing success kicks off our scientific promotion strategy for this program, which is being carried out alongside our partner Nestlé Health Science and will lead to the comprehensive publication of the results obtained with TOTUM•63. This strategy reflects our high scientific standards. But above all, it is a decisive factor for the successful marketing of TOTUM•63 throughout the world.’
Hans-Juergen WOERLE, Chief scientific and chief medical officer at Nestlé Health Science, states: ‘Comprehensive scientific publications for TOTUM•63 ensure high scientific validity of the quality of results for this active substance. This is instrumental for a health product, where often times a comprehensive understanding of mechanisms are lacking, and will pave the way for anticipated use of TOTUM•63 in prediabetes and blood glucose disorders. We are delighted with these first publications, working alongside the Valbiotis teams and its highly reputable academic partners.’
First three publications in leading international peer-reviewed journals
The three papers have been accepted and published in the following three journals:

TOTUM•63 is a unique and patented combination of 5 plant extracts, with high potential to target the physiopathological mechanisms 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 international randomized, placebo-controlled Phase II study showed that TOTUM•63 reduced fasting and 2-hour blood sugar levels, two risk factors for Type 2 Diabetes, in prediabetics compared to placebo. In these subjects, who also had abdominal obesity, TOTUM•63 significantly reduced body weight and waist circumference.
TOTUM•63 benefits from intellectual property granted in the main markets worldwide: Europe (covering 39 countries), the United States, Russia, China, Japan, Mexico, Indonesia, Israel, South Africa, New-Zealand and national phases are underway in more than 10 countries including Brazil and Australia. The ability to produce TOTUM•63 industrially, in compliance to North American and European standards, has been validated. TOTUM•63 already has marketing authorizations related to its status in Europe.
In 2020, Valbiotis has signed a global and long-term partnership with Nestlé Health Science for the development and worldwide commercialization of TOTUM•63. This unique partnership in the field of Nutrition Health plans that TOTUM•63 will be put on the market by Nestlé Health Science at a global level, possibly before obtaining a health claim, depending on the areas. It will also provide funding for the latest development stages of TOTUM•63.

ISAE-SUPAERO's "Collaborative Rover and Drone" Project, Facilitating the Exploration of the Moon21.6.2021 09:54:00 CEST | Press release
While Thomas Pesquet launched on April 22 as part of the Alpha mission, one of humanity's biggest challenges remains even further away than the ISS, 400,000 km from Earth: the establishment of a lunar base. But before being able to settle on the Moon in a prolonged way to exploit its resources or as a logistic support for future exploration missions further away, an exploration work is necessary. The use of autonomous robotic systems would allow mapping of dangerous or hard-to-reach areas from space, before eventually deploying infrastructure such as a spaceport or human habitation. Faced with this exploration challenge, the Space Advanced Concepts Laboratory (SaCLaB) of ISAE-SUPAERO in Toulouse and a team of students from the Institute are developing the Collaborative Rover and Drone (CoRoDro) project to study navigation and autonomous operations for space robotic systems. This scientific study is one of 12 university technology projects selected in 8 different countries as part of th
