My questions is - and educate me if there is a reason for this - why don't they just provide updates as the Phase progresses? If it is related to confidentiality and or federal process you would think that they would at the least be able to report on how many people are enrolled and at what time they enrolled.
Another questions I have is as the Phase III is taking longer than expected that this may indicate that survival rates are high?
1) The company doesn't have access to the trial data until the 360 event is reached, which as far as we know hasn't occurred yet.
2) Since the control arm has past events that give us a fairly comfortable expectation level, its a valid assumption to say that the longer the trial goes, the more likely the odds the trial will meet its specified goal.
