Ocera Therapeutics receives CE Mark for Zysa™ for the treatment of diarrhea-predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS-d)
Date:5/18/2012

SAN DIEGO, May 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ocera Therapeutics Inc., a privately-held biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of proprietary agents to treat gastrointestinal and liver diseases, announced today that it has received a CE Mark for Zysa™ (spherical carbon adsorbent, formerly AST-120) for the treatment of diarrhea predominant IBS (IBS-d), a condition affecting 10-15% of the Western world.  Zysa is now ready for clinical use in the EU and countries that recognize the CE Mark.
