About Ardea Biosciences
Ardea Biosciences, Inc. of San Diego, California, is a biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of small-molecule therapeutics for the treatment of HIV, cancer and inflammatory diseases, including gout. We have four drug candidates in clinical trials and several others in preclinical development and discovery. Our most advanced drug candidate is RDEA806, a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI), which is in a Phase 2a study for the treatment of HIV. We have evaluated our second generation NNRTI, RDEA427, for the treatment of HIV in a human micro-dose pharmacokinetic study and have selected it as a development candidate. We are also investigating RDEA806 for the treatment of gout. We are evaluating our lead MEK inhibitor, RDEA119, in a Phase 1 study in advanced cancer patients, as well as in a Phase 1 study in normal healthy volunteers for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. We have evaluated our second generation MEK inhibitor, RDEA436, for the treatment of cancer and inflammatory diseases in a human micro-dose pharmacokinetic study, and have selected it as a development candidate. In addition to the foregoing clinical programs, we are investigating other drug candidates in earlier stages of preclinical development and discovery.
