GlaxoSmithKline and Anacor Pharmaceuticals Form Alliance to Develop Systemic Antivirals and Antibiotics Based on Boron Chemistry
Date:10/8/2007

-containing molecules to guide rational drug design. As a consequence of boron's unique properties, boron containing molecules may access different chemical space than traditional anti-infectives, providing opportunities for structural and biological novelty. Anacor's proprietary technological advances in the synthesis of boron-based compounds coupled with its rational drug design expertise, has enabled the company to rapidly create diverse families of boron-based compounds.

"We are pleased that GlaxoSmithKline, an industry leader in the development and commercialization of anti-infective drugs has acknowledged the potential of our boron-based chemistry for systemic applications," said David Perry, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This agreement with GlaxoSmithKline is consistent with our strategy to maximize the value of our technology platform by forming early collaborations for systemic applications of our boron technology, while developing topical products on our own to a more advanced stage."

"GlaxoSmithKline recently created a single Centre of Excellence for Drug Discovery dedicated to Infectious Diseases," said Zhi Hong, Senior Vice President and Head of GlaxoSmithKline's ID CEDD. "We recognize the issues created by resistance to available medicines and are determined to take advantage of novel approaches that offer new prospects for treatments across a range of infectious diseases. Anacor's boron-based chemistry has shown promise in inhibiting targets that are difficult to address with traditional carbon-based molecules and we look forward to further exploring its potential to provide new antiviral and antibiotic options."
