The partnership brings a novel ADHD treatment option to the Canadian market
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 26, 2023 /CNW/ - Kye Pharmaceuticals Inc. ("Kye"), a Canadian specialty pharmaceutical company, announced its partnership with Hyloris Pharmaceuticals SA ("Hyloris"), a Belgium-based developer, manufacturer and global supplier of a novel, prescription, oral solution form of atomoxetine. Through this partnership, Kye becomes the exclusive Canadian rights holder for the Atomoxetine Oral Solution developed by Hyloris. Under the terms of the agreement, Kye is responsible for the registration and commercialization of this product in Canada.
Atomoxetine Oral Solution may be indicated for the treatment of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children 6 years of age and over, adolescents, and adults.
This partnership brings a novel ADHD treatment option to the Canadian market.
ADHD is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders, affecting 4-6% of adults and 5-7% of children in Canada, or approximately 1,8 million Canadians. ADHD is a common childhood disorder leading to impairments in learning and behavior. Eighty percent of children diagnosed with ADHD continue to qualify for a diagnosis in adolescence and at least 65% continue to be impaired by symptoms in adulthood.1
Atomoxetine Oral Solution can provide an easier to swallow, more appropriate formulation for patients with dysphagia (swallowing difficulties) or when requiring dosage titration, which is a key concern in children and some adults with ADHD.
"Many Canadians with ADHD are unable to take solid tablets as prescribed, and alternative formulations which have been available internationally are not readily available in the Canadian market," says John McKendry, President of Kye. "This partnership expands our growing portfolio of innovative ADHD treatments and will ensure Canadian patients have access to a liquid formulation of atomoxetine, a well-established non-stimulant medication."
Hyloris is committed to bringing innovative, value-added medicines that address the needs of underserved patient populations. "We are proud to be collaborating with Kye to supply this essential ADHD treatment to Canadian patients," says Stijn Van Rompay, Chief Executive Officer of Hyloris.
