Total revenue for the full year 2011 was $ 1.4 million, compared to $ 0.4 million, for the comparable quarter in 2010. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to an increase in 2011 in government research grant revenue, and an increase in license fee and royalty revenue as compared to 2010.

For the full year 2011, research and development expenses were $24.4 million compared to $23.7 million for 2010.
