# Headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, and listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange (SIX:BSLN). Its fully integrated research and development operations are currently focused on antibiotics and antifungals, as well as on the development of dermatology and oncology drugs, targeting the medical challenge of resistance and non-response to current treatment options in the hospital and specialty care setting. Basilea is currently marketing Toctino® (alitretinoin), the only approved treatment for severe chronic hand eczema unresponsive to potent topical steroids, in Denmark, France, Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom and has appointed Almirall, S.A. as its distributor for Toctino® in other selected European markets and Mexico. The company has entered into a global partnership with Astellas Pharma Inc. for its phase III compound isavuconazole, a potential best-in-class azole antifungal, for the treatment of life-threatening invasive fungal infections. Full rights to ceftobiprole, the first approved anti-MRSA broad-spectrum cephalosporin antibiotic, for the treatment of potentially life-threatening resistant bacterial infections, will be transferred from Cilag GmbH International, a Johnson & Johnson company, back to Basilea.
