Operations and Organization
Rexahn Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the "Company", "Rexahn Pharmaceuticals"), a Delaware corporation, is a development stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative treatments for cancer, central nervous system ("CNS") disorders, sexual dysfunction and other medical needs.  The Company had an accumulated deficit of $57,473,894 at September 30, 2011 and anticipates incurring losses through the remainder of fiscal 2011 and beyond.  The Company has not yet generated commercial sales revenue and has been able to fund its operating losses to date through the sale of its common stock, warrants exercisable for common stock, units, issuance of long-term debt, and proceeds from reimbursed research and development costs.  Management has the capability of managing the Company's operations within existing cash available by focusing on core research and development activities.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements of the Company have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for interim financial information.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of the Company's management, all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the Company's financial position as of September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010 and the results of operations and cash flows for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 have been included.  Operating results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or the full fiscal year ending December 31, 2011. The accompanying unaudited financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2010 ("2010 Form 10-K/A").  Information included in the condensed balance sheet as of December 31, 2010 has been derived from the Company's audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2010 included in the 2010 Form 10-K/A.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  These estimates are based on management's best knowledge of current events and actions the Company may undertake in the future.  Actual results may ultimately differ from those estimates.  These estimates are reviewed periodically and as adjustments become necessary, they are reported in earnings in the period in which they become available.
The Company has reclassified previously reported amortization of Rexgene's research and development arrangement, as disclosed in Note 9, "Deferred Research and Development Arrangement", from revenue to a reduction of research and development expenses in the statement of operations.  The reclassification had no effect on the Company's balance sheets, net loss, or cash flows from operating activities.
