Cytori Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CYTX) today reports its first quarter 2014 financial results and provides updates on clinical development and commercialization activities.
Cytori achieved total product and government contract revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014 of $1.4 million, compared to $1.9 million for the same period in 2013.

The Company did not record non-cash development revenue in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2013. Total net loss was $10.4 million in the first quarter of 2014 compared with $7.7 million in the same period of 2013.
