Re: Interesting timeline (as we wait)

All we can do is wait. Most of us (on this board) believe that Geron's NDA for Imetelstat will be granted (very high probability). Still, no one has been able to explain the FDA's opening diatribe on March 14th, which was totally refuted by most of ODAC and other contributors (patients, blood cance...

Re: Inducement Grants

Dr. Feller told us (shareholders meeting, May 9th) that Geron was in the process of increasing its staff from 162 to between 250 and 300. These inducements would be consistent with that goal. I cannot imagine this kind of rapid expansion, unless they were sure that the 12 to 2 ODAC recommendation wa...

Re: Institutional Ownership = 75.7%

As I have been cautioned several times, nothing is a sure thing until the 'fat lady sings' (in this case the FDA). All appears to be in place for the FDA to approve Geron's NDA for Imetelstat (transfusion independence, EHA paper, institutional ownership, blood cancer experts, ODAC recommendation, e...

Re: EHA Abstracts

Geron's employee count is going from 162 to between 250 and 300. We can be certain that there will be important and interesting presentations concerning Imetelstat ...

Re: FDA v. Geron

Let's get Imetelstat over the finish line. It is now a binary decision, either the FDA approves (most likely) or the FDA denies. Denial would be a surprise considering 12 YES ODAC votes. Also, the integrity of the FDA would be questioned. The FDA (as far as I can tell) has never rejected an ODAC po...

Re: My shareholder questions (with answers)

By the short run, I mean the time between today and June 16th. I am hoping that Imetelstat gets approved in that timeframe. If it does not the future of Geron will be very much in doubt after years of successful trails and meeting patients' unmet needs. I believe the FDA will approve, but the FDA's...

Re: 12-2, take the win right?

The 12 YES votes from ODAC should prevail. No one trusts the FDA after their "devil's advocate" presentation at ODAC's March 14th meeting. Some think there is an "effort" by big pharma to prevent FDA approval of Imetelstat and that is holding the price down. It could shoot up rapidly (toward $10 as...

Re: Upcoming Events....

Tomorrow's (May 9) shareholder meeting may present more information for us to dissect. I don't see anything preventing Imetelstat's NDA approval, that is honest and above board. (No shenanigans or conspiracies that are credible) Anything is possible in the world of Geron. However, as far as I can t...

Re: Sergei Left a comment on LinkedIn

We cannot separate Geron from MAIA at this point in time. There is too much common history between them with similar goals.

In John Scarlett's own words: Geron continues to work closely with the FDA. The NDA (New Drug Application) is under complete review and Geron is "preparing for a successful launch".

There is too much here, once the FDA grants approval, for Geron to go it alone. I expect partners, collaborators, combinations and associates at several levels. We all expect FDA approval after the 12 YES vote recommendation from ODAC. However, some potential investors are apparently taking a wait ...
