  • Other Comments:

    The article is correctly presented as  early phase data because extensive validation is still required with wet laboratory. The main strenght of the article is the concept -which, though not quite novel, has been undertaken and presented with much clarity. The steps taken to avoid docking near haeme is quite novel
