General and administration expenses increased by approximately $581,000 to approximately $1,459,000 in Q1-2008 from $878,000 in Q1-2007.

Depreciation expense increased to approximately $89,000 in Q1-2008 from approximately $52,000 in Q1-2007 primarily as a result of computer equipment purchased in 2007 for sales representatives hired during the period. Depreciation expense in Q1-2008 was generally consistent with Q4-2007.
