Anacor Pharmaceuticals To Present Pivotal Phase 3 Data Of Tavaborole For The Topical Treatment Of Toenail Onychomycosis

Stocks in this article: ANAC

Anacor Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ANAC) announced today that its abstract “ Pivotal Phase 3 Safety and Efficacy Results of Tavaborole (Formerly AN2690), a Novel Boron-Based Molecule for the Topical Treatment of Toenail Onychomycosis” was accepted for oral presentation at the 2013 APMA Annual Scientific Meeting (The National) to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Max Weisfeld, DPM, will present the data from tavaborole’s Phase 3 studies on Monday, July 22, 2013 during the Evidence-Based Medicine and Oral Abstracts session.

As announced earlier this year, tavaborole achieved statistically significant and clinically meaningful results on all primary and secondary endpoints in two Phase 3 pivotal studies without concomitant debridement. Anacor is seeking approval for tavaborole from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and will file a New Drug Application imminently. Currently, there is only one FDA-approved topical treatment for onychomycosis, a fungal infection of the nail and nail bed, which affects approximately 35 million people in the United States.

“I’m impressed with tavaborole’s safety and efficacy data. There is no FDA-approved topical treatment for onychomycosis with tavaborole’s range of efficacy and ability to penetrate the nail to reach the site of the infection,” said Dr. Weisfeld. “Tavaborole’s Phase 3 results demonstrate its ability to clear the nail and eliminate the infection which is important to both patients and the physicians who treat them. In addition, tavaborole is easy to apply and dries quickly which makes it convenient for patients to use.”

“We are pleased to present these positive data at the APMA’s Annual Scientific Meeting, the leading annual meeting of podiatrists. As we seek FDA approval for tavaborole, we look forward to developing relationships with podiatrists to potentially offer them a new treatment option for the large number of patients who seek treatment for onychomycosis,” said David Perry, Chief Executive Officer of Anacor Pharmaceuticals.
