We are seeing data on other indications, like myeloid indications. Translational research is extremely helpful in this respect, and then, of course, in all other fields, in the malignant fields, we will see treatment studies with inhibitors, combinations of inhibitors, and I think it’s almost impossible to pick out one or the other trial.

That’s also something that I noticed, that even during the last years at EHA, we are seeing more good science, because, in recent years, education was the best asset, but now we are seeing all these trials, and it’s incredible. It’s hard to pick one.

I would also think that a field where we see a lot of development is the field of benign hematology, small indications, for instance, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, so PNH, where we get decisive new treatments that will change our treatment [inaudible].
