The problem with your comment is one can't explain why LP would be at this conference at all, when they apparently ducked out of the last two because they were "anticipating disclosure of interim blinded data." Are you suggesting that is no longer important? What if the publication appears before the 23rd? Then we'd know why they weren't ducking out on the 23rd. However, what could LP say? She couldn't explain the results, because that would be the investigator's job and they would need to wait until a scientific conference takes place. The only thing LP could do is talk about what they plan to do with the data going forward. Maybe, NWBO wanted to make that clear to the conference because they wanted to make certain this was not attempting to step on researcher/investigator/inventor toes.
