Orexigen Therapeutics Inc is a biopharmaceutical company. The Company is engaged in development of pharmaceutical product candidates for the treatment of obesity. Its product candidate includes NB32 and Empatic.

Orexigen Therapeutics Inc was incorporated in Delaware in September 2002. Company is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of pharmaceutical product candidates for the treatment of obesity. Its product candidates are NB32, which has completed Phase III clinical trials and which is currently being studied in a cardiovascular outcomes trial, and Empatic, which has completed Phase II clinical trials. Both NB32 and Empatic regulate appetite and energy expenditure through central nervous system activity. NB32 is a fixed dose combination of bupropion and naltrexone. Company develops its product candidates for large markets traditionally served by primary care physicians. In order to effectively promote NB32 to these physicians, in September 2010, it entered into a collaboration agreement with Takeda to develop and commercialize NB32 in the United States, Canada and Mexico. It maintains an aggressive intellectual property plan, which includes patent and trademark filings in multiple jurisdictions including the United States and other commercially placed markets. It relies on a combination of in-licensed patent rights, its own patent rights, trademarks, trade secrets and know-how to protect NB32 and Empatic. Its products used in clinical trials have been produced by outside contractors under its supervision. Company competes with AstraZeneca, Athersys, Inc., Bristol-Myers Squibb, Norgine BV, Novo Nordisk A/S, among others.
