About Pharmasset

Pharmasset is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company committed to discovering, developing, and commercializing novel drugs to treat viral infections. Pharmasset's primary focus is on the development of oral therapeutics for the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) and, secondarily, on the development of Racivir(R) for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Our research and development efforts focus on nucleos(t)ide analogs, a class of compounds which act to inhibit the enzymes required for viral replication. We currently have three clinical-stage product candidates: R7128, a nucleoside analog for chronic HCV infections, has initiated a Phase 2b clinical trial in combination with Pegasys plus Copegus through a strategic collaboration with Roche; PSI-7851, an unpartnered, next generation HCV nucleotide analog, which recently began Phase 1 clinical studies and Racivir, for the treatment of HIV that has completed a Phase 2 clinical trial.

        Pegasys(R) and Copegus(R) are registered trademarks of Roche.
