    The issue isn't that they can't share but they are choosing to wait for OS data where half of the patients succumb to the disease on both arms. The real issue is whether the control arm has already reached the half way point for OS. I doubt that it did or else the management would have stated it so the safer conservative interpretation is that both arms the patients are living longer than historical so don't get your hopes up for any statistical difference in OS though it would be great if it did. Just remember that this trial met the primary end point and some of the secondary end points remarkably well and a good safety profile compared to Doxil. Also, I think that this trial isn't blinded so the investigators must be seeing the data already so their downplaying the expectations may mean something.
