Ocera’s lead drug candidate OCR-002 is a novel ammonia scavenger which rapidly removes ammonia from the blood. Elevated ammonia is believed to be one of the primary causes of hepatic encephalopathy (HE). OCR-002 is the subject of STOP-HE, a Company-sponsored Phase 2b trial, and two investigator-sponsored Phase 2a trials. OCR-002 has received Orphan Drug designation in both the U.S. and Europe and has been granted Fast Track status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
