Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that it is investigating
potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Affymax,
Inc. (“Affymax” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:AFFY) concerning possible

allegations that certain statements issued by Affymax were false and
misleading regarding the Company’s business and financial prospects.
