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 an antibiotic for the treatment of infections
caused by Gram-negative bacteria. 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
