rick, thanks for letting me know that there is an international application. i found the us application earlier this year when looking for curis/gnenetech 0449 ip (us appl. no. 20120039893). for some reason, i did not perform my normal patent and application review process, just looked at the title, and totally missed the potential importance. thanks - i will read in detail. sometimes i'm in the mood to get into the details of the science contained in applications, patents, research papers, etc. this now looks interesting and i may do that if anyone is interested.
