Words such as but not limited to , 'believe', 'expect,' 'anticipate,' 'estimate,' 'intend,' 'likely,' 'should,' and 'could,' and similar expressions or words identify forward-looking statements. Although Amicus believes the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, there can be no assurance that its expectations will be realized.
Actual results could differ materially from those projected in Amicus' forward-looking statements due to numerous known and unknown risks and uncertainties including the risk factors described in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and other other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Amicus does not undertake any obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which any such statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
At this time, it is my pleasure to turn the call over to John Crowley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Amicus.John Crowley
Great, thank you, Sara. Good evening, everybody, and as Sara indicated, we will be using the slides that are up and available to everybody on the call. We got feedback after our last conference call that that was very helpful and hopefully that will be a format that we will continue to follow here at Amicus. So with that in mind, I'll reference Slide number 3 to begin just to give you a sense of the agenda for this call. I will provide an overview of some of the general Amicus corporate highlights, go through that together with the Fabry program. I'll then turn it over to Brad Campbell, who will take us through the highlights of the Chaperone-ERT Program highlights. Chip Baird, our Chief Financial Officer, will go through the 2Q 2012 financial results together with updated guidance for full year 2012 and then I'll take the call back for some concluding remark.
