NEW YORK, March 1, 2013

NEW YORK, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading
national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at
Affymax, Inc. ("Affymax" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: AFFY).

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120119/MM38856LOGO)

The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated
federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) 2% of patients
taking Affymax's kidney treatment drug Omontys were experiencing
hypersensitivity reactions resulting in anaphylaxis, a serious and
life-threatening allergic reaction; and (2) 0.02% of those taking Omontys
experienced fatal anaphylaxis reactions.

On February 23, 2013, Affymax announced that the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration ("FDA") was requiring a total recall of the drug due to reports
of anaphylaxis. According to the FDA, "serious and fatal" hypersensitivity
reactions had been reported in some patients within 30 minutes of receiving
their first doses of the drug by intravenous injection. On this news, the
price of Affymax stock declined by more than 85%, closing at $2.42 per share,
down $14.10 per share from the prior night's close.
