I would concetrate my effort and money in doing the phase I/II in one center, then if there will be some indications of efficacy I bet that centers will run to you asking to parteciapate to a phase 3 trial..

The goal, in my opinion, should be to do the trial, but here sometimes I have the impression that the goal is to set up a clinical trial net which then may not have the money to run a trial.

Does that make sense?
