About Ardea Biosciences, Inc.

Ardea Biosciences is focused on the discovery and development of small-molecule therapeutics for the treatment of viral diseases, cancer and inflammatory diseases. The Company plans to have active development programs with four new chemical entities (NCEs) in the clinic for three distinct indications by the end of 2007, with an additional one-to-two indications in inflammatory diseases planned for the first half of 2008.

Ardea's most advanced clinical development programs include: RDEA806, the Company's lead non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) for the treatment of HIV, which is expected to enter a Phase 2a clinical trial in the fourth quarter of 2007; RDEA119, a mitogen-activated ERK kinase (MEK) inhibitor for the treatment of cancer and inflammatory diseases, which is in a Phase 1 clinical trial in advanced cancer patients; RDEA806 for gout, which is expected to enter a Phase 2 efficacy trial in the first half of 2008. Ardea also is developing a next-generation NNRTI and a next-generation MEK inhibitor, both of which are scheduled to enter first-in-human studies in the fourth quarter of 2007.
