The Series C financing follows the Company's recent announcement of Phase II results and orphan drug designation for HPN-100 in its lead indication, the chronic treatment of patients with urea cycle disorders (UCD). The capital will fund the Phase III clinical program for UCD as well as a Phase II study in low grade hepatic encephalopathy.

Concurrent with the Series C financing, H. Daniel Perez, M.D. of Bay City Capital, and Gaurav Aggarwal, M.D. of Panorama Capital have joined the Hyperion Therapeutics Board of Directors.

"Considerable unmet needs remain in the treatment of both urea cycle disorders and hepatic encephalopathy," said Daniel Perez of Bay City Capital. "We believe the Hyperion management team, with their extensive drug development and regulatory expertise, is well positioned to lead a clinical development program focused on potential treatment options for these patients."
