ANA598 Receives Fast Track Designation From the FDA for the Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis C Infection
Date:12/1/2008

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Anadys Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Mechanisms intended to facilitate development include opportunities for frequent dialogue with FDA reviewers and for timely review of submitted protocols. However, the designation does not guarantee approval or expedited approval of any application for the product. The granting of fast track status for the ANA598 development program is consistent with the need for HCV treatments with novel mechanisms of action, oral administration, non-overlapping resistance profiles and improved safety and efficacy over the existing standard of care for both treatment-naive and treatment-experienced patients.

"The FDA's fast track designation for ANA598 acknowledges the need for new HCV therapies to improve treatment outcomes," commented James Freddo, M.D., Anadys' Senior Vice President, Drug Development and Chief Medical Officer. "We anticipate continuing to work closely with the FDA on the development and regulatory review of ANA598, one of the few non-nucleoside polymerase inhibitors in clinical development for the treatment of HCV. We continue to
