as well as higher payments to affiliated physicians, which were partially offset by increasing receivable collections.

Cash from operations in the third quarter of 2008 was $35.1 million, compared to cash generated by operations of $16.5 million for the third quarter of 2007 and cash used for operations of $(8.6) million for the second quarter of 2008.

The $43.7 million increase from the second quarter of 2008 reflects improved receivable collections which were partially offset by semiannual interest payments on the indebtedness of US Oncology in the third quarter of 2008. Additionally, payments made to distribute pharmaceutical rebates to physicians were lower in the current period than in the second quarter of 2008.

As of November 5, 2008, the Company had approximately $100 million of cash and investments, and availability under the revolving credit facility of $133.7 million.

As anticipated, a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy ("REMS") proposal by manufacturers was filed with the FDA in late August, 2008. The REMS will focus on future ESA prescribing and is projected to require additional patient consent/education requirements, medical guides and physician registration procedures. The length of time r
