      Unicycive Therapeutics, Inc. (UNCY) has seen a decline of 0.39% in the aftermarket. However, the last trading session closed at $2.59 with an increase of 1.57%.

      Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results – How was the quarter?

      UNCY revealed third quarter 2021 financial results on 11th November 2021. According to the report, research & development costs were $3.8 million, $0.3 million more than the third quarter of 2020. This was primarily attributable to a one-time $2.2 million increase in non-cash expenditure owing to the issuance of common shares in accordance with the anti-dilution provision in the Renazorb licensor’s purchase of in-process R&D technology. This is the last anti-dilution share issue by the licensor.

      Moreover, UNCY reported $0.9 million in general and administrative costs, $0.3 million more than the third quarter of 2020. The majority of the increase was due to a $0.3 million rise in directors’ and officers’ insurance expenses. Last but not least, the cash and cash equivalents came out to be $18 million.

This is done by being included in the Russell Microcap Index and participating in conferences. They are also thrilled to have biopharmaceutical executive Douglas Jermasek on board, whose extensive knowledge with renal disease medicines has already proven invaluable.
