      Did you know that from yeterday's release or some new news came out today ? I thought the consensus on the board was the results are great.

    • Very impressive data. It could have been more impressive if FEV1 was determined every week and plotted the time development. I dropped by in the middle of moving.

      • Hope the move is going smoothly! DH asked if Thirdme had said anything yet--we were hoping for your insight.

        Yes, I was thinking the same thing--if they didn't meassure it weekly it could have plateaued already. But I think they actually did meassure FEV weekly. Also, one of the investors asked about that at the conference yesterday and said "the graph is pretty striking. It doesn't look like it has plateaued--do you think it has." And Vertex said it has not yet plateaued, but also that "definitely no one has gone down." Not sure if that meant it started to slow down for some, but I think there will still be a chance that it's going to continue up for a bit--maybe enough to get that 2% of FEV lost between interim and final back.

        PS You can listen to the conference on your telephone if you computer isn't hooked up yet while you unpack. (Yesterday's press release has info.)
