(Nasdaq: TSRX), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative antibiotics for serious, life-threatening infections, announced today its financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2010.

The increase in revenues during the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 was largely due to the award of the company's second federal research contract, a $29.5 million, four and a half-year contract from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). Trius' first federal contract was a $27.7 million, five-year contract from the National Institutes for Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
