The Law Firm of Weiss & Lurie Investigates Anadys Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Weiss & Lurie, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Anadys Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANDS) arising from its proposed acquisition by Roche Holding for $3.70 per share in cash.

Under the agreement, Roche will commence an all cash tender offer for all outstanding Anadys shares. The tender offer is expected to close within the fourth quarter of 2011, subject to customary conditions, including the tender of a majority of the outstanding Anadys shares.
