About Anacor Pharmaceuticals

Anacor is a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing novel small-molecule therapeutics derived from its boron chemistry platform. Anacor’s two lead investigational product candidates are topically administered dermatologic compounds — Kerydin, a topical antifungal in development for the potential treatment of mild-to-moderate onychomycosis of the toenail, and AN2728, an anti-inflammatory PDE-4 inhibitor in development for the potential treatment of mild-to-moderate atopic dermatitis. In addition to its two lead product candidates, Anacor has discovered three other wholly-owned clinical product candidates — AN2718 and AN2898, which are backup compounds to Kerydin and AN2728, respectively, and AN3365, an investigational antibiotic in development for the treatment of infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria. Anacor has also discovered three other compounds that have been out-licensed for further development — one is licensed to Eli Lilly and Company for development in animal health, the second compound, AN5568, also referred to as SCYX-7158, is licensed to Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative, or DNDi, and is in development for the potential treatment of human African trypanosomiasis (HAT, or sleeping sickness), and the third compound is licensed to GlaxoSmithKline, LLC for development as a potential treatment for tuberculosis.
