The operating expenses in the quarter were primarily driven by clinical development expenses for our lead product candidate, PB272 (neratinib), the transition of the PB272 clinical trial program to Puma from the drug’s licensor, hiring staff and building out our corporate infrastructure.General and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2012 were $1.7 million.

Included in the research and development expenses for the second quarter of 2012 are outside clinical development expenses of $10.3 million related to the transition of the ongoing PB272 clinical trials to Puma from the licensor, approximately $3 million of which represented duplicate costs incurred for the licensor’s services in connection with these trials. The Company anticipates that as this transition has largely been completed, these costs will decrease significantly in future quarters.
