Ocera Therapeutics Inc is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company. The Company is engaged in the development and commercialization of proprietary compounds to treat acute and chronic orphan liver disease.

Ocera Therapeutics Inc was incorporated in Delaware on December 20, 2004. The Company is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company. The Company is engaged in the development and commercialization of OCR-002 for the treatment of hepatic encephalopathy or HE. OCR-002 is a novel molecule, ornithine phenylacetate, which functions as an ammonia scavenger. In pre-clinical studies, OCR-002 reduced arterial ammonia in an animal model of chronic liver disease and reduced arterial ammonia, brain ammonia and intracranial pressure in a second animal model of acute liver failure. OCR-002 has been granted orphan drug designation and Fast Track status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, for the treatment of hyperammonemia and resultant HE in patients with acute liver failure and acute-on-chronic liver disease. OCR-002 has also been granted orphan drug designation in the European Union for the treatment of acute liver failure. The Company faces competition from established pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as from academic institutions, government agencies and private and public research institutions, among others, which may in the future develop products to treat HE. The Company is subject to federal, state and local laws relating to such matters as safe working conditions, manufacturing practices, environmental protection, fire hazard control, and disposal of hazardous or potentially hazardous substances.
