About Ocera

Ocera Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of OCR-002 (ornithine phenylacetate). OCR-002 is an ammonia scavenger which has been granted Orphan Disease and Fast Track status from the FDA to treat hyperammonemia and associated hepatic encephalopathy in patients with liver cirrhosis, acute liver failure and acute liver injury. Hepatic encephalopathy is a complication of patients with liver cirrhosis, acute liver failure and acute liver injury. When the liver no longer functions normally, ammonia accumulates in the blood leading to impairment of brain cell function and overt neurocognitive impairment, a condition called hepatic encephalopathy (HE). HE can lead to coma and death due to brain swelling. Currently there are no intravenous drug treatments in the U.S. for HE for hospitalized patients suffering from an acute HE episode.
