Roche Holding AG
Drug Names(s): ANA773, RO6864018, RO-6864018
RG7795 is an investigational oral small-molecule compound that acts via the Toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) pathway in hepatitis. TLR7 agonists cause the production of antiviral cytokines and the activation/maturation of immune cells with the potential to enhance immune response.
Preclinical data show that the active metabolite of ANA773 promotes natural killer (NK) cell-mediated anti-tumor response by inducing cytokine secretion, cytolysis of tumor cells and enhanced antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC).
Deal Structure: In October 2011, Anadys announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement to be acquired by Roche.
