For the six months ended June 30, 2008, revenues totaled $5.0 million, up from $3.9 million in the first six months of 2007. Consistent with second quarter results, the increase was primarily attributable to a $3.0 million improvement in cost recovery from our EAP to treat patients with ALS in Italy. This was partially offset by the absence of license income from Napo and the revenues lost from our withdrawal of IPLEX(TM) in the short stature market pursuant to the terms of our settlement agreement with Genentech Inc. and Tercica Inc. entered into in 2007.
The net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2008 was $9.5 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to $12.8 million, or $0.12 per share, for first six months of 2007. Year-over-year, R&D Expenses increased to $10.8 million for the first half of 2008, from $9.8 million, reflecting an increase in clinical trial activity for our FOB and IPLEX(TM) programs. SG&A Expenses fell to $3.0 million for the first half of 2008 from $6.5 million a year earlier due to the elimination of litigation expenses following the March 2007 settlement and the removal of commercial expenses associated with our business restructuring plan. The $446,000 loss on investments represents the write down on the Napo investment during the first half of 2008.
Interest income for the first half of 2008 was $375,000 and was a reduction from the $525,000 earned in the same period of 2007 due to the combination of a lower interest rate environment and a lower average cash balance. Interest expense increased to $682,000 in the most recent six month period from $306,000 during the corresponding period of 2007. The increase was due to an increase in the debt discount amortization resulting from the quarterly payment of our 2005 convertible notes, which began in March 2008.'/>"/>
