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 has discovered eight compounds that are currently
in development. Its two lead product candidates are topically administered
dermatologic compounds — tavaborole, a topical antifungal for the treatment of
onychomycosis, and AN2728, a topical anti-inflammatory PDE-4 inhibitor for the
treatment of atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. In addition to its two lead
programs, Anacor has discovered three other wholly-owned clinical product
candidates — AN2718 and AN2898, which are backup compounds to tavaborole and
AN2728, respectively, and AN3365 (formerly known as GSK2251052, or GSK‘052),
a systemic antibiotic for the treatment of infections caused by Gram-negative
bacteria, which previously was licensed to GlaxoSmithKlineLLC, or GSK. GSK
has returned all rights to the compound to us and we are considering our
options for further development, if any, of this compound. We have discovered
three other compounds that we have out-licensed for further development — two
compounds for the treatment of animal health indications that are licensed to
Eli Lilly and Company and AN5568, also referred to as SCYX-7158, for human
African trypanosomiasis (HAT, or sleeping sickness), which is licensed to
Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative, or DNDi. We also have a pipeline of
other internally discovered topical and systemic boron-based compounds in
development. For more information, visit http://www.anacor.com.
