VALBIOTIS Announces the First Patient’s First Visit in the Phase II HEART Clinical Study on TOTUM-070 and Steps up Its Research Program Against Hypercholesterolemia in 2021
VALBIOTIS (FR0013254851 – ALVAL / eligible for the PEA/SME) (Paris:ALVAL), a French Research & Development company committed to scientific innovation for preventing and combating metabolic diseases, announces the First Patient's First Visit in the Phase II HEART clinical study evaluating TOTUM-070, an innovative active substance for the reduction of blood LDL-cholesterol levels, a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
The Company is stepping up development of TOTUM-070 in 2021, with the completion of a complementary clinical study and preclinical work on lipid metabolism. These preclinical results will be submitted to the American Heart Association (AHA) meeting at the end of the year.
Murielle CAZAUBIEL, member of the Management Board and Director of Development and Medical Affairs at VALBIOTIS, comments: “The start of recruitment for the Phase II HEART clinical study kicks off a decisive year for the development of TOTUM-070. This study should demonstrate the clinical efficacy of our active substance against excess blood LDL-cholesterol, a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease worldwide. Pending these results in early 2022, and given the potential of TOTUM-070, we have decided to conduct several complementary clinical and preclinical studies simultaneously this year. This is an ambitious program, which should provide a maximum amount of data by early next year and confirm TOTUM-070 as an additional innovation for people at risk of cardiovascular disease.”
The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, Phase II HEART clinical study is designed to evaluate the efficacy of a 5g daily dose of TOTUM-070 on blood LDL-cholesterol levels, its primary endpoint. The study will include 120 people with LDL-cholesterol levels between 130 and 190 mg/dL. Results are expected in early 2022.
Development of TOTUM-070 stepped up in 2021
Simultaneously with the HEART study, VALBIOTIS has decided to conduct a complementary clinical study to expand knowledge of TOTUM-070 and its effects on lipid metabolism in humans. Conducted on a limited number of volunteers, it will combine a bioavailability study, metabolomic analysis (characterization and quantification of TOTUM-070 metabolites) and targeted ex-vivo mode of action tests on human cell models, mainly hepatic. Results are expected before the end of 2021.
Finally, a series of preclinical experiments will be launched and completed in 2021. Conducted on the VALBIOTIS R&D platform, this work is intended to detail the impact of TOTUM-070 on lipid metabolism in a predictive model of human pathophysiology. The results will be submitted to the annual meeting of the American Heart Association (AHA), the leading American learned society in the cardiovascular field, to be held from November 13 to 15, 2021.
Once development is complete, TOTUM-070, a new Health Nutrition product, will be positioned for individuals with LDL-hypercholesterolemia, at levels up to 190 mg/dL, with a moderate overall cardiovascular risk. At the end of 2020, the Company provided detailed market data on hypercholesterolemia and the role of TOTUM-070 in its management (see press release of October 27, 2020).
ABOUT THE HEART STUDY
The Phase II HEART clinical study is designed to evaluate the efficacy of a 5g daily dose of TOTUM-070 on blood LDL-cholesterol levels, a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, in the absence of lipid-lowering treatment.
This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study will include 120 people with untreated moderate hypercholesterolemia and blood LDL-cholesterol levels between 130 and 190 mg/dL. Participants will be divided into 2 equivalent arms of 60 people, supplemented for 6 months with TOTUM-070 or placebo.
The primary endpoint of the study will be the reduction of blood LDL-cholesterol levels, with several metabolic secondary endpoints of interest.
TOTUM-070 is an innovative active substance derived from food plant extracts, without phytosterols or red rice yeast, developed to act on lipid metabolism in hypercholesterolemic individuals.
Once development is complete, this new Health Nutrition product will be positioned in particular for people with LDL-hypercholesterolemia, at levels up to 190 mg/dL, with a moderate overall cardiovascular risk. TOTUM-070 may be recommended in this large population for whom no first-line drug treatment is currently recommended, with the aim of reducing LDL-cholesterol levels and thus overall cardiovascular risk.

Bentley and ESI Group Work Together to Refine the Flying Spur Through Sustainable Design Process17.5.2021 14:00:00 CEST | Press release
Regulatory News: ESI Group (Paris:ESI), a global player in virtual prototyping for industries, worked hand in hand with Bentley on the optimization of one of the world’s finest four door sedan, the Flying Spur. Thanks to virtual prototyping, teams have been able to eliminate noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and reduces physical parts in test phase. Advanced virtual design processes have been used in the testing and production cycles of the third Flying Spur generation. Thanks to ESI’s virtual prototyping, a weight optimization program for the Flying Spur could be undertaken on 40 different components. The finely tuned process enabled acoustic tests for any airborne sounds filtering into the cabin to be completed, as well as any impact from the structure itself, such as tire noise. This ensured the correct soundproofing materials were deployed in the right locations around the vehicle, so passengers can enjoy the quietest cabin experience possible. These cutting-edge techniques are
