Hi eli...yes this is the study. Per the protocol we would have added gemcitabine a few weeks ago, but it was decided not  to due to the cancer markers going from 122,565 to 12,000 with only a couple weeks of tx with Tivantinib. Thanks eli, Dana

If so then one of us attending ASCO might have a chance to watch the presentation.
