NEW YORK, Aug. 3 (GenomeWeb News) - Decode Genetics yesterday reported increased revenues and a flat net loss for the second quarter of 2005.

Research and development costs more than doubled, to $11 million from $5.4 million during the year-ago period. This increase was due to costs of clinical trials, according to the company.

As of June 30, Decode had $185.3 million in cash and short-term investments, including restricted cash.
