Business Description

Industry: Biotechnology » Biotechnology
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:0HY.Germany
Hyperion Therapeutics Inc was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware in November 2006. It is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel therapeutics to treat disorders in the areas of orphan diseases and hepatology. The Company's product candidate, Ravicti (glycerol phenylbutyrate), is designed to lower ammonia in the blood. Ammonia is produced in the intestine after a person eats protein and is normally detoxified in the liver by conversion to urea. Elevated levels of ammonia are potentially toxic and can lead to severe medical complications which may include death. It is developing Ravicti to treat two different diseases in which blood ammonia is elevated: the prevalent urea cycle disorders, or UCD, and hepatic encephalopathy, or HE. UCD are inherited rare genetic diseases caused by a deficiency of one or more enzymes or protein transporters that constitute the urea cycle, which in a healthy individual removes ammonia through the conversion of ammonia to urea. HE may develop in some patients with liver scarring, known as cirrhosis, or acute liver failure and is a chronic disease which fluctuates in severity and may lead to serious neurological damage. The Company's strategy is to commercialize a product portfolio, including Ravicti, for the treatment of UCD and to develop Ravicti for the treatment of HE and other indications. Hyperion acquired the worldwide rights to Ravicti from Ucyclyd Pharma, Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of Medicis Pharmaceutical Corporation in March 2012. Hyperion also has an option to acquire, in the first half of 2013 for a pre-negotiated price; Hyperion also has an option to acquire, in the first half of 2013 for a pre-negotiated price, Ucyclyd's worldwide rights to BUPHENYL and, subject to certain conditions, AMMONUL.
