ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

This increase was primarily due to increased external clinical expenses associated with ACADIA’s Phase III program with pimavanserin.

General and administrative expenses totaled $1.5 million for the third quarter of 2012, including $331,000 in stock-based compensation, and were comparable to the third quarter of 2011.
