Joining us for the Q&A portion of this call will be Stephen Mullennix, Chief Operating Officer; and Jeff Bova, Senior Vice President of Commercial. Liz will provide a summary of our recent corporate developments and Mark will share clinical development and regulatory updates. Peter will then provide an overview of our financial highlights for the second quarter of 2019, before we open up the call for questions.
