f the contingent equity rights liability following the termination of the license agreement for KRX-0401 in May 2012 and $1.6 million of non-cash compensation expense related to equity incentive grants. The net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, included license revenue of $5.0 million related to a milestone payment from the Company's Japanese partner for Zerenex (ferric citrate), Japan Tobacco Inc. and Torii Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., for their commencement, in April 2011, of a Phase 3 clinical program in Japan.
Ron Bentsur, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, said, "With the pending completion of our long-term Phase 3 study of Zerenex as a treatment for hyperphosphatemia in ESRD patients on dialysis, we look forward to reporting top-line data by year-end and anticipate the NDA filing for this indication in the first quarter of 2013. We are also excited to have recently initiated our Phase 2 study exploring Zerenex in the non-dialysis dependent chronic kidney disease setting, which we believe represents a substantial potential additional opportunity for Zerenex." Mr. Bentsur added, "Importantly, we believe that we have sufficient cash to take us beyond our key anticipated clinical and regulatory milestones."
