Chaz, we will be training the investigators and initiating a 6-month observational trial this fall. The treatment phase of the trial begins in Q3 of 2010. We have set a very ambitious schedule of raising the funds, obtaining regulatory approval, organizing and training the centers, and recruiting the subjects in the coming 6 months. We developed the observational trial approach in the ChinaSCINet to obtain repeated examinations of the subjects over a 6 month period before initiating treatment.
