Revenues

For 2010, revenue from research and development ("R&D") grants and contracts was $19.2 million compared to $13.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2009. The increase of $5.4 million is primarily due to a $2.4 million revenue increase for the Company's arenavirus antiviral program and a $2.2 million revenue increase for its broad-spectrum antiviral drug program. Revenue also increased by $900,000 for the Company's ST-246 program.

For 2010, research and development ("R&D") expenses were $22.6 million, an increase of $5.2 million from $17.4 million recognized for the year ended December 31, 2009. The increase is primarily due to activity in the arenavirus and broad-spectrum antiviral programs. Vendor-related expenses increased $1.8 million for the arenavirus program and $860,000 for the broad-spectrum program. Employee-related compensation costs, including costs related to the arenavirus and broad-spectrum programs, increased $925,000.
