great could and that applied do and PN not forward SNPX. data, forward move has to additional led the chemistry, but been. our this And and full we're to based let's pan following to important these study PN PN have in think specific reviewing with that to anticipating also our just and from brings in then we wild I in studies, an SNPX compound to, the in I been Mike that just CX I where a have think splicing note about I sparing allele apply with it's alluded it's progressing around SNPX, a a think type important, and what way approach excited as and detail, data chemistry on others looking DMD. chemistry said, us think silencing with

think looking I we're data. So forward this to

I think us new looking key Huntington's to disease. And to programs. around data we're the the the forward upcoming is commitment I think a for three
