In the report, the analyst notes:

"Revenues for 2009 were $13.9 million, down 8% from $15.1 million in 2008 primarily due to decreased revenue associated with the Company's agreement with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of $3.2 million. The lower revenue under the DHS agreement is a result of decreased work scope and effort in 2009 as compared to the 2008 period. 

"GNVC recently announced that it is discontinuing its phase 3 clinical trial of TNFerade™ in patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer based on results of an interim analysis. This interim analysis of overall survival, conducted after the 184th death (two-thirds of total expected events), was designed to determine whether the study should continue."
