Research and development expenses for the second quarter of 2016 were $33.2 million, compared to $34.0 million for the same period in 2015. The decrease of $0.8 million, or 2%, from the 2015 period to the 2016 period was due to decreases of $0.8 million in stock-based compensation expense and $8.4 million for Mylan's 50% share of biosimilar collaboration costs, which was offset by increases of $4.4 million in process and clinical development costs for M281 and biosimilars under the Company's collaboration with Mylan, $2.2 million in non-clinical expenses to advance the Company's novel autoimmune programs, $1.0 million in personnel-related expenses and $0.7 million in necuparanib Phase 2 clinical trial costs.
General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 were $14.9 million, compared with $13.3 million for the same period in 2015. The increase of $1.6 million, or 12%, was primarily due to an increase of $2.1 million in legal and professional fees. This increase was offset by a decrease of $0.5 million for Mylan's 50% share of biosimilar collaboration costs.
At June 30, 2016, Momenta had $336.9 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities.
