One more question, you listened to Ironwood's CC and no information was given on the lack-luster performance of their IBS drug. Is Forest Pharma a poor marketing firm? Half the drug revenue target was hit, shares of Ironwood are by no means showing a big hit, the potential for a IBS drug is huge!

The latest coating put on these drugs (Oxycontin) the big one, has been creating more personal "back-logs" :) of problems.
