Revenues for the second quarter of 2020 were $13.5 million, compared to $26.8 million in the second quarter of 2019 and $23.5 million in the first quarter of 2020. The decreases reflect the impact of the postponement of cataract procedures by ASCs and hospitals due to COVID-19. Cataract surgery resumed beginning in the second half of May 2020, and by the end of June 2020, the run rate of weekly OMIDRIA sales approximated levels seen prior to the pandemic.
Net loss in the second quarter of 2020 was $33.3 million, or $0.61 per share. This compares to a net loss of $14.5 million, or $0.29 per share, in the second quarter of 2019. Net loss in the second quarter of 2020 included non-cash expenses of $6.9 million, or $0.13 per share.
Six COVID-19 patients in Italy with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) were treated with narsoplimab under a compassionate use program.
