VALBIOTIS Presents Positive Results From a Study on TOTUM-63, Active Substance of VALEDIA®, Conducted by the CarMeN Laboratory in Lyon, at the Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD)
VALBIOTIS (Paris:ALVAL) (FR0013254851 – ALVAL / PEA/SME eligible), a Research & Development company committed to scientific innovation for preventing and combating metabolic diseases, today announced the presentation of a preclinical study conducted by the CarMeN laboratory on the active substance TOTUM-63, at the 55th Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes being held September 16-20, 2019 in Barcelona, Spain.
This preclinical study evaluated the effect of TOTUM-63 on the secretion of certain hormones which play a fundamental role in glucose metabolism. In a murine model of metabolic disease, TOTUM-63 completely corrected insulin, glucagon and GLP-1 (Glucagon-Like Peptide-1) concentrations in the portal vein, in response to a glucose intake. These three hormones are central to the regulation of blood glucose.
This study confirms, via an independent laboratory, the effects already demonstrated1 on blood glucose and weight by TOTUM-63, the active substance of VALEDIA®, a product designed to control blood glucose in prediabetics.
Béatrice MORIO-LIONDORE*, Research Director at the CarMeN Research Laboratory, comments: "We are delighted to be presenting this study at the 55th EASD Annual Meeting. The results obtained demonstrate the significant effects of TOTUM-63 on weight and glucose metabolism in this preclinical model. In addition, our study aimed to evaluate the effect of TOTUM-63 on the hormonal imbalances associated with metabolic diseases. We have proven that TOTUM-63 corrects the blood levels of three key hormones in glucose metabolism: insulin and glucagon, secreted by the pancreas, as well as GLP- 1, an intestinal hormone essential for blood glucose control that is well-known in the field of diabetes."
Pascal SIRVENT, Head of Discovery and Preclinical and Translational Research at VALBIOTIS adds: "The results obtained by the CarMeN laboratory team have high value for VALBIOTIS: by examining the hormonal level, this study has made a fundamental contribution to increasing our understanding of the action of TOTUM-63 on metabolism. The hormonal effects reported today are consistent with the improvement in metabolic parameters that have already been widely observed, both in preclinical and clinical studies with TOTUM-63. These results provide clear evidence of the positive action of TOTUM-63 on the levels of hormones whose secretion is altered in prediabetes or diabetes."

About TOTUM-63, the active ingredient of VALEDIA®
Prediabetes is a growing public health problem worldwide, recognized by international organizations such as the WHO, the American Diabetes Association and the International Diabetes Federation, among others. Without effective treatment, 70% to 90% of prediabetic patients will develop type 2 diabetes.
VALEDIA® is the first clinically validated product specifically designed to help prediabetics reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. VALEDIA® is the only product that contains the active ingredient TOTUM-63, a unique and patented combination of 5 plant extracts that act in synergy to target the physiopathological mechanisms of type 2 diabetes.
TOTUM-63 has already shown perfect tolerance and safety during a Phase I/II clinical study conducted in healthy volunteers. The results of the Phase IIA international randomized, placebo-controlled study showed that in patients with prediabetes, TOTUM-63 reduces fasting blood glucose and blood glucose at 2 hours, two risk factors of type 2 diabetes. In these subjects, who also presented with hypertriglyceridemia and abdominal obesity, TOTUM-63 significantly reduced body weight, waist circumference, blood triglycerides, blood LDL cholesterol, Fatty Liver Index and arterial hypertension.
