where can I obtain 20 - 50 mg piclamilast (RP 73401; 3-(cyclopentyloxy)-N-(3,5-dichloro-4-pyridyl)-4-methoxybenzamide) as a positive control for our topical formulation trial of PDE4A inhibitors? Thanks, Robert Etges

Is this the Bob Etges from the University of Cincinnati who studied under Dr. Mukkada? If so, This is Deb Bietz. It would be great to talk to you if you have the time.
