People at Intercept are passionate about patients. You'll see our patient photos lining our walls and hear their stories in town halls. We're equally passionate about our team and ensuring each member from all dimensions of diversity feels included and has the opportunity to reach their potential. We recognize the power of a diverse, equitable and inclusive (DEI) work force, and how it enriches the professional lives of our team members. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion drives innovation and connects us to the patients and communities we serve.

At Intercept, we foster an environment that celebrates creativity, collaboration, and mutual respect. We never hesitate to lean on our teammates and work together.

At Intercept, our mission is to build a healthier tomorrow for patients with progressive non-viral liver diseases. Intercept's lead product, obeticholic acid (OCA), is a first-in-class farnesoid X receptor (FXR) agonist marketed under the brand name \"Ocaliva®\" in the U.S., EU and Canada for the treatment of patients with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), a rare autoimmune liver disease. In 2016, Ocaliva® was the first medication to be approved for PBC in over twenty years, and sales continue to grow.

Intercept has also established the leading clinical development program in advanced fibrosis due to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a disease that impacts the lives of millions of people in the U.S. alone and for which there are currently no available treatments. The 18-month interim analysis of the REGENERATE study of OCA remains the only readout from a Phase 3 trial to have shown positive results in the disease.
