Third quarter research and development expenses totaled $8.1 million, level with the prior year period. Year-to-date research and development expense decreased by $0.2 million to $27.3 million, primarily due to lower compensation expense, partially offset by higher clinical trial expenses for PSMA ADC and inclusion in 2013 of expenses related to MIP-1404. Third quarter and year-to-date general and administrative expense decreased by $0.9 million compared to the prior year periods, primarily due to lower compensation expense from a third quarter 2012 restructuring, partially offset by higher consulting and professional fees and other operating expenses.
