Furthemore, the Company has established a refined and tailored action plan to serve these objective, which includes close collaboration with local agents to provide expertise and network and a Senior Management's presence in the most attractive business events in pharma. For this, Biophytis will attend the BIO US conference, the largest business development conference on the American continent to be held from June 3 to 6 in San Diego.

Stanislas Veillet, CEO of Biophytis, stated: "The obesity market is currently soaring, with the USA (more than 110 million patients), China (approximately 70 million patients) and Brazil (more than 40 million patients) having the highest prevalence rates. It is crucial for Biophytis to position itself in these key regions which are open to innovation and present great potential revenue wise. Beyond the financial aspects, Biophytis has the ambition to address a gigantic medical challenge. But we can't accomplish this on our own. Only by partnering with the brightest minds in science and healthcare can we serve the needs of patients. Biophytis' Partnering strategy is founded on 4 values that will be at the core of our approach: trust, expertise, performance and ambition."
