We are a Swiss commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company identifying, developing and commercializing novel patent-protected products in selected specialty, rare and ultra-rare disease areas on a global basis.

We currently focus on three therapeutic areas where we can best leverage our internal know-how and assets: Rare Metabolic Disorders, Rare Skin Diseases and Rare Respiratory Diseases. We are developing a direct commercial footprint in the United States (U.S.) and in Europe (EU), coupled with a strong network of commercial partners in the other major territories.

We leverage our internal R&D laboratories and track record in drug delivery systems and technologies to identify and take to market reformulated and/or repurposed drugs with a history of proven human safety and efficacy using a lean and capital-efficient organization where all key strategic functions are internalized, combined with an optimized network of outsourced service providers for various development activities.

Our products are intended for patients and care givers dealing with specialty, rare and ultra-rare debilitating diseases, by offering them novel treatment options engineered with patented drug delivery systems or repurposed and optimized drugs, to help them live their best possible lives and achieve their full potential.

Our diversified portfolio comprises a rare disease product that is commercialized in the EU and that we plan to launch in the U.S. in the last quarter of 2022, as well as a pipeline of products at various stages of development that are focused on rare and specialty diseases in selected therapeutic areas.
