Telecon Body:


I got your message that you called a couple of days ago. As of now, the review of your BLA is ongoing. We are currently in the process of deciding if the BLA can be filed and if it can, if there are any deficiencies. The filing deadline is 60 days after we received the BLA. We will let you know at that point if the BLA will be filed. I am still expecting you to send in the programs that the statistical reviewer on the team can use to analyze your data sets. I remember that you told me that this will happen within a month of submission. Make sure that these programs are submitted in a timely manner. Thanks.
