What’s unique or what’s important about a TIA? And this is an important thing for us to sort of talk about. Which is a TIA is a stroke that’s about to happen. And the way that we should sort of view it as really this is an opportunity for us to intervene and prevent the stroke that could happen. We know that in about somewhere between 15 to 20% of patients who have TIAs, they’ll go on to have a stroke. That risk is really high in the first couple of days and last until about three months. So if someone has a TIA, they shouldn’t delay. They need to get into the hospital to get evaluated rapidly.
