The 12-week open label study, that was led by a group of international research, presented by Prof. Donna H Ryan, demonstrated that the weight-loss, induced by the Epitomee’s capsule, was supported by an early satiety, smaller meal size and less snacking.1 These results indicate that clinically meaningful weight loss, following the use of Epitomee’s capsule, is correlated with satiety, less snacking, and a reduced meal-size.

The Epitomee capsule will be commercialized by Nestlé Health Science, a global leader in nutritional health and wellness, which holds the global distribution rights. “Epitomee is a breakthrough technology and has the potential to provide a safe, efficacious, and convenient solution to millions of patients and consumers struggling with overweight or obesity.

This is yet another vote of confidence in the Epitomee important contribution to a successful weight loss and another step forward towards the US market.” Said Dr Dan Hashimshony, CEO of Epitomee.
