SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Sept. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hyperion Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:HPTX) today announced several data presentations at the 12th International Congress of Inborn Errors of Metabolism (ICIEM) and the satellite symposium on urea cycle disorders (UCDs) held in Barcelona, Spain. Among the presentations, the company highlighted long term data regarding ammonia control in pediatric patients with UCDs who were treated with RAVICTI® (glycerol phenylbutyrate) Oral Liquid. UCD patients lack enzymes or transporters necessary for the conversion of ammonia to urea and experience heightened levels of ammonia in the bloodstream. Left untreated, UCDs can result in neurological damage, coma, and/or death.
