VALBIOTIS Succeeds in the Industrial Production of VALEDIA®, a Major Scientific Innovation for Prediabetic People, in Collaboration with the Pierre Fabre Group
VALBIOTIS (FR0013254851 – ALVAL / PEA/SME eligible), a French Research & Development company committed to scientific innovation for preventing and combating metabolic diseases, announces the successful industrial production of VALEDIA® (active substance TOTUM-63), the most advanced product in the VALBIOTIS portfolio. This achievement is the result of a collaboration with the Pierre Fabre group, a world-renowned expert in the industrial production of plant-based active substances.
Since securing industrial property rights in Europe and the United States, VALBIOTIS has made another major breakthrough by demonstrating its capacity to produce VALEDIA® industrially, and in accordance with the regulations governing these two markets.
Sébastien Peltier, CEO of VALBIOTIS, comments: "The industrial production of VALEDIA ® has come at the best possible time for VALBIOTIS, after obtaining strong preclinical and clinical results and securing the industrial property rights, in the lead-up to the publication of our Phase IIA clinical results. This is an important milestone, thus completing our health claim application and supporting our negotiations with a partner company to market the product in 2021. This development confirms the sustainability of our project to market plant-based products which target the causal mechanisms of metabolic diseases. To achieve this, we are following the regulatory process for dietary supplements with a health claim, while maintaining almost pharmaceutical-grade development standards."
VALEDIA® will be the first of a new class of products, aiming to prevent and combat metabolic diseases.
Industrial batches for future studies
VALBIOTIS is currently developing VALEDIA ® for two labels: prediabetes and hepatic steatosis. The results of the Phase IIA clinical trial for prediabetes are expected by 31 July, 2019. They will be followed in the second half of the year by the launch of the European Phase IIB clinical study (REVERSE-IT) and the Phase IIB study (PREVENT-IT) in North America. The data from these studies will be used to submit the application to European and North American regulatory authorities, for a health claim to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, with a view to marketing the product in 2021.
Murielle Cazaubiel, Director of Development and Medical Affairs at VALBIOTIS, comments: "The success of this industrial production means we can progress to the next stages of clinical development with complete confidence. The new production capacities established with the Pierre Fabre group will be used in our two upcoming confirmation studies. This collaboration has enabled VALBIOTIS to benefit from leading expertise in the production of plant-based active substances, from extraction to standardization, ensuring that these results can be reproduced with both large and small quantities."
“In 2015, we put our expertise in extracting plant-based active substances at the service of VALBIOTIS and accompanied them in their development. We produce 3 plant extracts that make up VALEDIA ® at our Gaillac (Tarn) extraction site. Today, we are happy to accompany them in this industrial transposition by manufacturing the capsules on our Cahors (Gers) production site specialized in phytotherapy and aromatherapy,” adds François MACAREZ, Business Developer at Pierre Fabre Médicament.
