Anacor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces Preliminary Top-Line Results from its Two Phase 3 Pivotal Studies of Crisaborole Topical Ointment

Anacor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced preliminary top-line results from its two Phase 3 pivotal studies of Crisaborole Topical Ointment, 2% (formerly AN2728), a novel non-steroidal topical anti-inflammatory phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE-4) inhibitor in development for the potential treatment of mild-to-moderate atopic dermatitis in children and adults. In both studies, crisaborole achieved statistically significant results on all primary and secondary endpoints and demonstrated a safety profile consistent with previous studies. Atopic dermatitis is a chronic rash characterized by inflammation and itching. Lesions of atopic dermatitis are commonly red, elevated and oozing patches and are often accompanied by pruritus (itching). The lesions' lichenification, a thickening of the skin with exaggerated skin lines, is considered to be a hypertrophic response to chronic rubbing. Based on available sources, the company believe approximately 18 to 25 million people in the United States suffer from atopic dermatitis, and 80% to 90% have mild or moderate disease. Atopic dermatitis can persist into adulthood, but most commonly appears in childhood, with estimates that between 8% and 18% of all infants and children in the United States are affected by the disease.
