Thank you, Lisa. Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining our call. I'm pleased to share some updates with you today as we continue to make progress toward our planned launch of VAZALORE in the middle of next year. As we advance VAZALORE through the regulatory process, we are tracking well on all our key milestones.

We conducted a Type C meeting with the FDA, in a written response-only format, regarding our April briefing package submission for VAZALORE. The Type C meeting confirmed the information we need to provide for the approval of VAZALORE. We completed the manufacture of registration batches at the end of June and are now gathering stability data to support the sNDA submission for VAZALORE planned for year-end. We continue our pre-commercial activities, and we're on track to launch VAZALORE in mid-2020.

I'll now turn the call over to our CFO, Rita O'Connor, to discuss second quarter results and our progress in manufacturing. Rita?
