You do research into medical journals, textbooks, you talk to doctors that specialize in this type of work. There are a lot of data sources on the internet that we go to find out the most recent research on all medical products. This stuff shows up. It starts showing up. A lot of people, they write complaints to the FDA, and the FDA starts keeping a file on it. We monitor all of that. That will show up every month. We have databases that produce cases where one drug maybe is getting tied to a certain kind of problem that nobody saw before they marketed the drug. That’s how it usually starts. A lot of the complaints are made by the doctors who prescribe the drugs. Usually, one of your claims is that they never told the doctor about the side effects. As they learn about the side effects from the doctors, more often than learning about the side effects from the patients.
