Recruiting is now open at152 of 267 locations worldwide. Since December they opened 79 sites and added 42 to the eventual total. Adding the additional sites may be compensation for a slow start. No update on Comet 2, last report was 38/55. I would expect some sort of comment on recruiting and estimated completion at the conference on the 12th.
At one of the last investor conferences, there was an analyst question posed wrt compendium listing. It was deferred as premature to the approval/marketing process. If MMM were considering such an application - say for DTC - is this the sort of thing you'd expect him to broadcast in advance?
A failed application would go virtually unnoticed by the market (JMO)...but an early label expansion via a NCCN reco could boost potential revenues like nobody's business...
"...is this the sort of thing you'd expect him to broadcast in advance?" I don't have any special insight, but if I were him I would not advertise that fact in advance. It just sets up a disappointment if it doesn't get the listing.
