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, an antifungal for the treatment of
onychomycosis, and AN2728, an 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 also discovered three
other compounds that we have out-licensed for further development — two are
licensed to Eli Lilly and Company for the treatment of animal health
indications and the third compound, AN5568, also referred to as SCYX-7158, is
licensed to Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative, or DNDi, for human
African trypanosomiasis (HAT, or sleeping sickness). 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.
