Geron got approval for the first ESC trial ever approved by the FDA... the first mouse never found the cheese.....BTX with West (the old ACTC CEO) now owns the IP....Lanza said all along the second mouse would get the cheese....we all got a little cheese the monday following when ACTC hit .29
so here we are 4 years later...on Martin Luther king Jr. day the first African american president will begin his second term..
It was March 9th of 2009 that Obama signed executive order 13505, those of us who were here at the time thought it an eternity. With only 21 viable NIH lines at the time, the number has grown to a whopping 200. Progress, yes , hampered however by James Sherley and gang...the so-called scientist who when he did not get tenure...went on a hunger strike...unlike Bobby Sands he did not follow through. It is just now that we we should anticipate the changing of guidlines which should allow George Daly and ACTC's lines to be allowed on the list. A long time coming.
I could give you a long laundry list of things that have or have not been done with this company that make me shake my head. We should demand a salary cut for the ceo. etc etc.
However, we are at a pivtotal point as early, as it may be, to prove the potential of ESCR .A potential that will only grow as our knowledge grows.......Folks the mouse is nibbling the cheese
