I understand the partnership clause is almost boilerplate for small biotech companies, but I was struck by the prominence of the presentation. It seemed much bolder than usual. It may be a statement of independence that is a leverage for any buyout negotiations.

Re: The FDA’s belated gift to Geron

I have owned Geron stock since it went public, I believe 198or 1999. I got intrigued by their stem cell research and Tom Okarma's enthusiasm. So that did not work out like we hoped, but I hung in there for MDS treatment, which eventually got named Imetelstat. It is still hard for me to process the g...

I notice the FDA agenda has nothing listed for this week. All other weeks have items. So maybe it is cleared to take action this week. Hope so.

Re: PDUFA approvals and price change

As I mentioned, there were no good comparables in my review. But there was not much evidence of big breakouts on approval. Does anyone have better data?

PDUFA approvals and price change

I just did a two month review of PDUFA approval effects on price of drug stocks and really could not find anything of great use for Geron price effect. I might conclude that price jump won't be that great for Geron.
