That was a given, that there are not currently conducting trials. However given their recent hires you would think that they were getting ready for clinical trials. Isn’t that was he states in the line before, that they are planning trials.

IMHO the Folica deal is very likely to work well. But I also think it’s probably headed for the full-boogie 3 stage FDA trials. Probbaly 10 years, 6-8 if we’re very lucky and/or they can skip sections of it.
