OK nobody answered my question, "what Geron officer first coined the term "Holy Grail" in referring to imetelstat.?". I know somebody out there remembers this essammee, prime3end ?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
"Holy Grail", to my way of thinking, is finding something (long hidden) that is very good and very valuable that benefits all mankind. In that sense, these words could be the proper words. As all have said, we are waiting for more information from additional studies, that appear to be coming soon. We are also waiting to hear from the FDA. So far, so good.
"sidesaddlex".....yet another "fringe lunatic" who allows itself to get all wet and warm over a Seeking Alpha "pumping" article. Those of us who have been here 8-10 years and have read similar Seeking Alpha "pumping" (and "bashing") articles realize these Bozos are out for one thing.....to sell subscriptions to their newsletter. The same goes for Motley Fool, The Street, and any other commercial stock news publication.
So, "sidesaddlex", just calm down, breathe deeply, and you'll get over this, "Holy Grail", "pump" before long.
Maine your beginning to sound like the troll from Monty Python's Holy Grail. GERN is on a mission to find a cure for cancer(yes maybe even the holy grail) and the minute we collectively think we can cross the next bridge you start your negative, pessimistic doubting Thomas mis-step banters concerning any positive prospects for the drug's development. We are all here to determine whether this investment will deliver on both qualitative and quantitative fundamentals, not to ensure it will fail with FUD.
Life is all conjecture...scientific theory is speculation at it's best...facts are just a framework of reference which we base scientific theory on...nothing is black or white, except maybe in Arkansas. With your quantitative outlook on things you may as well go back to your sink hole in the swamps. You are missing out on accepting that the sky is red, I mean blue.
Did you call Anne in PR yet?
Old Man Maine: You are totally wrong. Imetelstat is not fraudulent. The Mayo studies were honest; CRs, PRs and CIs happened and are continuing to happen. Geron has bridged the "understanding gap" between telomeres and cancer stemcells. The Seeking Alpha article is very accurate, and well thought out. One point that it makes is that Geron is in the cancer treatment business, and it is not out of the stemcell business. That is very important going forward. Geron is not "a one trick pony".
