US FDA seeks more information on Maxigesic IV® application

For Immediate release

Liège, Belgium – 01 July 2022 - Regulted information - Inside Information - Hyloris Pharmaceuticals SA (Euronext Brussels : HYL) announces that it has today received a Complete Response Letter (CRL) from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on its application for the US registration of Maxigesic IV®. The FDA has only requested additional data on one remaining topic.

“We believe, along with our partners at AFT, that generating the additional information that FDA requires to support the NDA submission of Maxigesic IV® will allow the product to fulfill its full commercial potential in the US and not affect the Company’s other existing development programs. The additional work required by FDA falls well within the parameters of our normal operational budget and will be completed expeditiously said Stijn Van Rompay, Chief Executive Officer of Hyloris.”

Maxigesic® IV, is a novel, unique combination of 1000mg paracetamol and 300mg ibuprofen solution for infusion, for the treatment of post-operative pain and is currently licensed in more than 100 countries across the globe. It has also been registered in 39 countries and launched in 7 countries including Australia, Germany and Korea. The medicine is protected by several granted patents and pending patent applications.
