Anadys Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to improving patient care by developing novel medicines for the treatment of hepatitis C. The Company believes hepatitis C represents a large unmet medical need in which meaningful improvements in treatment outcomes may be attainable with the introduction of new medicines. Anadys is conducting a Phase IIb study of setrobuvir, the Company's DAA, added to pegylated interferon and ribavirin for the treatment of hepatitis C. The Company is also developing ANA773, the Company's oral, small-molecule inducer of endogenous interferons that acts via the Toll like receptor 7, or TLR7, pathway in hepatitis C and plans to initiate a Phase IIa study shortly.
