DM: But I am really proud of that data because it surpassed every marker that we had hoped to, especially when you break it down into the ASSURE sub population. It just smashes the numbers we were trying to show. So will we see that in ASSURE? Well, almost certainly. Well, 94% chance. So I think we're doing well.

NW: We continue to focus. We continue to be excited.

DM: It's really hard to follow a biotech company.

JL: Well, it's patience. Right?

DM: Yeah.

JL: It takes a long time . . .
