Dear Mr. Peddicord,

Thank you so much for raising your concerns over one of Toshiba's new television commercials showing people in medical testing situations.

Our intent was not to minimize the value of clinical research or insult people participating in clinical studies.

We will absolutely take your objections into consideration as we develop future advertising.

Thanks again for your feedback.
