Oncology drug development company Celsion Corporation (NASDAQ: CLSN) Thursday reported a narrower net loss for the second quarter of 2019, reflecting a decrease in operating expenses.

The company reported a net loss of $5.9 million or $0.29 per share for the June quarter, marking an improvement from a loss of $8.2 million or $0.46 per share reported a year earlier. The bottom-line benefitted from a 30% decline in operating expenses to $5.7 million.

At $3.6 million, research and development expenses were down 22% from the year-ago period. Also, there was a modest decline in the clinical development costs for the phase-III OPTIMA Study as enrollment in the key clinical trial ended last year.

“With a clear focus on shareholder value, Celsion continues to execute its business plan for our ongoing clinical development programs with ThermoDox and GEN-1. We are exceptionally well positioned on the fundamentals with a strong balance sheet that is expected to fund our clinical programs through transformative milestones over the next 18 months,” said CEO Michael Tardugno.
