In the report, the analyst notes:

"Revenues were $63.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2009, compared to $38.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2008. The increase in revenues in 2009 is almost exclusively attributable to license fee revenues related to the upfront payment received from sanofi-aventis, partly offset by lower royalty revenues having been recognized in 2009 in connection with our agreement with Merck Serono for Cetrotide.  

"AEZS recently announced that it has received from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) orphan-drug designation for AEZS-108, its doxorubicin targeted conjugate compound, for the treatment of ovarian cancer.
