Aggregate revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $73.7 million versus $147.0 million in the prior year.

Total research & development and sales, general & administrative expenses declined 10.7% to $152.3 million from $170.5 million in 2011, primarily due to reductions in personnel related costs and overall lower spending.
