Intestinal microbiota: Valbiotis Research signes a research partnership with the MEDIS2 Unit from the Clermont Auvergne University.

Valbiotis, a Research and Development company committed to scientific innovation for preventing and  combating  metabolic  and  cardiovascular  diseases,  announces  the  signature  of  a  research  partnership  in  intestinal  microbiota  with  the  MEDIS2  Unit  from  the  Clermont  Auvergne  University  on  its active substances against dyslipidemia and metabolic liver disease.

Led by a laboratory shared by the two entities, this collaboration will  aim  to  develop  a  complete  and  dynamic  human  gastrointestinal  model  integrating the microbiota of the small intestine for the first time.

This project is based on the in vitro digestive model led by the MEDIS Unit, a unique innovation in human digestion research while to approach cardiovascular and metabolic diseases from a digestive and intestinal perspective, with a particular focus on the intestinal microbiota is an innovative angle in line with Valbiotis research and development strategy.

This work will make it possible to develop the world’s most complete model of the human upper digestive tract by 2024, integrating in particular the microbiota of the small intestine. The expected results will support the non-drug strategies against metabolic and cardiovascular diseases developed by Valbiotis.

The research project called MIMETiv1, which will focus on the TOTUM•070 and TOTUM•448 active substances developed by Valbiotis, will be conducted  by  a  joint  laboratory, partly funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR) with a contribution of €363,000.
