About Hyloris

Hyloris is an innovative specialty biopharma company committed to addressing important underserved medical needs of patients, hospitals, physicians, and payors. Hyloris applies its knowhow and technological innovations to existing pharmaceuticals and has built a broad proprietary product pipeline that has the potential to offer significant advantages over currently available alternatives. Hyloris currently has two, partnered commercial-stage products, Sotalol IV for the treatment of atrial fibrillation, and Maxigesic® IV, a non-opioid analgesic for the treatment of pain.
