For the quarter ended June 30, the total operating expenses were $49.4 million compared to $16.9 million for the same period in 2011. The increase is predominantly due to acquired in-process R&D expense of $29.1 million related to the acquisition of pacritinib from S*Bio, in addition to some expenses related to prelaunch activities for Pixuvri.As announced in June, we focused our research -- resources on the commercial launch of Pixuvri in EU and the advancement of pacritinib to its Phase III trials. We believe pacritinib represents a high-value product opportunity, addressing an unmet medical need in the myelofibrosis market even in the post-ruxolitinib approval here, which is clearly Phase III ready.
