Ted SchroederThanks Bill. Good afternoon and thank you for joining us today. I will open by providing a brief overview of the second quarter next Scott will provide an update on our commercial activities for OFIRMEV and then Bill will discuss our financial results. Following our prepared remarks, we will open the call to your questions. I am very pleased to report that we had a strong second quarter achieving net product revenue growth of 38% compared to the first quarter of 2012; importantly our net product revenue of $11.1 million for the quarter exceeded the financial guidance that we provided last quarter. We believe we are effectively executing on our sales and marketing strategy and that the adoption of OFIRMEV will continue to generate strong revenue growth.
