Biocryst Pharmaceuticals Inc. is a Delaware corporation originally founded in 1986. The Company is engaged in the design, optimization and development of novel drugs that block key enzymes involved in the pathogenesis of diseases. It integrates the disciplines of biology, crystallography, medicinal chemistry and computer modeling to discover and develop small molecule pharmaceuticals through the process known as structure-guided drug design. It uses X-ray crystallography, computer modeling of molecular structures and advanced chemistry techniques on the three-dimensional molecular structure and active site characteristics of the enzymes that control cellular biology. The Company's drug candidates include Peramivir, BCX4161, Two 2nd generation HAE compounds, BCX4430, Forodesine and Ulodesine. Peramivir is a neuraminidase inhibitor for the treatment of patients with influenza and a potent, intravenously administered antiviral agent that rapidly delivers high plasma concentrations to the sites of infection. BCX4161 is a novel, selective inhibitor of plasma kallikrein in development as an orally-administered treatment for the prevention of attacks in patients with Hereditary Angioedema. Forodesine is a PNP inhibitor in development as a treatment for cancer. Ulodesine is a PNP inhibitor developed as a once-daily oral, chronic treatment for gout.
