We intend to pursue the claims we incurred as a result of terminating this service agreement. We also intend to defend against the practice's allegations that we breached the agreement and that the agreement is unenforceable.

While ODAC recommended keeping chemotherapy-induced anemia as a labeled indication for ESAs, the Comm
