Research and development expenses for the second quarter 2012 were $6.4 million, representing a 28% decrease from $8.9 million in the second quarter 2011. The decrease in research and development expenses was the result of lower costs associated with the Phase 3 clinical trials for Zohydro ER, which were completed in 2011.Selling, general and administrative expenses for the second quarter 2012 were $12.1 million, representing a 20% decrease from $15.0 million in the second quarter 2011. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses was due primarily to the March 31, 2012 termination of the Company's co-promotion agreement with Astellas resulting in no service fee being incurred in the second quarter compared to a service fee of $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. Also, sampling costs were lower, with decreases partially offset by the expansion of the Zogenix sales force completed in the fourth quarter 2011.
