  2. Statistical – There will be CR issues.
  3. BIMO – Only two EIRs have been received, but all four inspections have been completed.  No CR issues seen. The two outstanding inspections have 483 issues (Drs. Baxter and Block).  Both sites had problems maintaining accurate case histories.  There are concerns about this and BIMO will obtain the EIR to determine the extent of the problems.
  4. DPQ - is working on the lot release protocol.  They will try to get that in by the end of the month.  DPQ has not received the samples for  testing and has not been  in correspondence with the company on technical transfer of SOPs and necessary assays to complete the sample testing.  This should be initiated ASAP.  The product reviewers will also meet to discuss and revise the CR issues.
