We believe the company may choose to raise additional capital within the next 12 months. Importantly, the registration-directed KEYNOTE-695 study (or PISCES Phase 2b trial) has been enrolling patients who have unresectable metastatic melanoma and have progressed or are progressing on an anti-PD-1 therapy.
