To look at toxicities it's probably better to extrapolate. From the larger studies in lung cancer and melanoma and real cell in the bottom line is that he's ageism extremely well tolerated. Yes skin rash is good za and some fifty. The biggest concern is auto immune phenomenon. And I think even there it's not been anywhere near what people anticipated patients who have a history.
