Patients on treatment with Hetlioz continue to increase steadily, driven by broader awareness and recognition of Non-24. We are preparing for a possible launch later this year in jet lag disorder, an indication that has the potential to drive significant growth for our Hetlioz franchise. Tradipitant clinical development is advancing for three indications, atopic dermatitis, gastroparesis and motion sickness. We believe that Vanda is well positioned for significant growth in the coming quarters and years given its strong commercial and clinical development pipeline and its exceptional people.'
