Re: Quote from Dr. Stephen Hahn FDA Commissioner

biopearl123, that is an interesting analogy, as a 35% mortality reduction is an impressive number in this context as is Imetelstat’s results in MOS for R/R MF as well as, TI in MDS. However, I think it might be comparing apples to oranges if you are looking at MOS in R/R MF vs recovery from a virus....

Re: Re EU MA

biopearI123, think this is a very good discussion to have. I really like and appreciate this thread. This could also be expanded into other considerations given an MA from any entity not just the EMA although it seems obvious that the regulatory agencies work together and try to stay in sync and pro...

Re: Imagine reading this

Thanks, biopearl for that link regarding the FDA guidelines for allowing a donor to donate blood as it sheds some light on the criticality of the availability of blood for RBCTs and the demand for over 40K RBCTs per day in the US. I am very grateful not to require RBCTs and I believe anyone would ha...

Re: Imagine reading this

bp, your focus on the number of RBC transfusions (RBCT) seems to me to be a relatively new and un-vetted line of thought for this board and for anyone focusing on the benefits of Imetelstat. I think you are maybe shining a bright light on an issue that should be difficult to ignore and it maybe the ...

Re: Thoughts on this interesting take from YMB:

Given our CEO is shrewd and a risk taker and heavily vested in making the best / right steps in bringing Imetelstat to market in the greatest way possible, I think we can rest assured that there is a lot of “out of the box” thinking going on right now. These discussions certainly include funding, pa...

Re: Patience and balance are virtues needed for the Geron journey

Yes, patience is hard in this space and time, as well as elsewhere for some of us, myself included. And I don’t mean to be overly philosophical with these posts and realize with so many people, patients and investors alike, struggling with their interest and participation in Geron / Imetelstat has b...

Re: Patience and balance are virtues needed for the Geron journey

Thanks bucbeard for your kind response as always. I certainly would feel much more at home on the bluffs in hunting gear than in a lounge chair on Turtle Island but who knows what the impending may bring. And either would be a welcome venue for meeting up with you somewhere in the future. And thanks...

Re: Patience and balance are virtues needed for the Geron journey

Part 3 of 3: Now we should all come back to face our confirmation biases, especially where our fortunes are at stake. I think a significant part of our CB flows from our nature versus the data, results or ideas presented. However, in regards to our Geron investments, I believe most of us will ultima...

Re: Patience and balance are virtues needed for the Geron journey

Part 2 of 3: But then there is the science and what Geron is doing with it. I would differ strongly that most Geronites have not studied the science or competition at length and have assessed the possibilities. Certainly, none of us forget the dialogue about the disease modifying ability of Imetelst...

Part 1 of 3: I apologize at the outset of this post(s) as I know from what is on my mind and notes that it will be long and quite likely boring to many. If you turn back here I wouldn’t blame you, as my attempts at trying to basically keep myself grounded in thought and possibilities of the Geron sc...

Re: So many blind spots right out in the open…

rccola335, again, I am not an expert on any of this but I have listened to that podcast at least two or three times and I have always felt that the KOL’s speaking were holding back on their enthusiasm with Imetelstat partly maybe largely because of their (at least Dr Steensma) relationships with oth...

Thanks to Bucbeard and Secret Third Arm for chiming in here on this slant of thinking. I am traveling some and spending a lot of time in and around the bluffs (i.e. hunting) right now so apologize for the slow response. I should also point out that the reference to COB in my initial comments should ...

So many blind spots right out in the open…

I haven’t had much to say over the last several months because progress is apparent to me and continues to be articulated well by those intellectuals and medically vested among us. I have a little time here so decided to needlessly ramble on regarding the naysayers propensity to continually slander ...

Similarities between Geron & PCYC by stiglg6 on YMB

Copied from YMB per biopearl's vacation post reference. stiglg6's post from 8/16/2019 an animal on this board suggested that there are no similairties worth mentioning between Geron and PCYC. How could this animal say such a thing? Is he or she ignorant to the similarities between Geron's imetelstat...
