Michael H. Tardugno

Thanks, Jeff. Good morning, and thank you for joining us. I know of no better way to open this call than with a comment that I made at the annual shareholder meeting this last June. And that is this, this is a great time for Celsion and I daresay to be a Celsion shareholder.

I'm pleased to report that your company has never been so well positioned. For those on the call who are shareholders, I'd like to express our thanks for your support and continued confidence in your company's strategic clinical focus and innovative heat-sensitive liposome technology. The HEAT Study, our Phase III pivotal trial combining the first drug in our tumor-targeting platform, ThermoDox, with RFA to treat hepatocellular carcinoma or HCC is fully enrolled. We are now looking forward to data by our best estimate in the fourth quarter of this year from the largest pivotal trial ever conducted in the intermediate stage, the largest unmet need in oncology. And we have the financial resources sufficient to see us through data and well beyond, which means to be clear, we have no current plans for equity financing prior to data, and Greg will discuss this in more detail during his comments.
