Revelation’s net cash used for operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $4.8 million, compared to net cash used for operating activities of $2.4 million for the same period in 2021.

The increases in net cash used for operating activities and net loss in 2022 as compared to 2021 were primarily due to clinical study expenses associated with our Phase 2b viral challenge clinical study (REVTx-99a) and our Phase 1b allergen challenge study (REVTx-99b), financial advisory fees, legal fees and professional consulting service fees, and public company directors and officers insurance policy (“D&O Insurance”).
