until later in the afternoon. I also want to remind everyone that this is a phase one trial with a drug that on paper should affect his type of cancer. There has been success with similar cancers to Eli’s, and some success in the lab…. Similar…. In the lab. As far as we know, Eli may even be the only kid with his cancer on it at all. So, in addition to those two strikes, as a phase one trial, the purpose of the trial is to find the highest, tolerable dosage, not to find out if it fights cancer. They know it can fight cancer to a degree, but they need to know how much of it they can give to a kid without killing him or her, and hopefully accidentally find out what type of cancer is affected by it. So, to have even stable success as far as the cancer goes would be unusual, and, really, an example of providential intervention, in my opinion, due to the prayers that you are so diligent to offer. Thank you for that work that has carried us so very far.
