    When???

    by blackmarango 10 hours ago
    blackmarango blackmarango 8 hours ago Flag

    yog: the common conjecture, back then, was that chippy was brought in to SELL the company NOT bring IMET to market.

    If so, then, chippy simply did NOT have the right skill set.

    Of course, IMO.

    dirty: unfortunately, you are so right!!!

  • blackmarango blackmarango 8 hours ago Flag

    mnm: that is a very profound question that many of us would like answered!

    If would be nice if chippy would tell us that GERN has petitioned the FDA for a partial release of the Hold.

    Of course, IMO.

    $2.37?

    Sucks, doesn't it!!!

  • blackmarango by blackmarango 10 hours ago Flag

    It should be more than obvious that there is a group of trolls on this board that want things to stay the same. They are very satisfied that not much is happening with IMET, are OK with chippy's Veil of Silence, and the Hold remaining until next year?

    Why? What's in it for them?

    Well, consider the old saying: " just follow the money trail" if you want to know what's going on.

    Remember that Dr. T created quite a stir and was severely bashed when he outed INCY's JAK treatments? Come on now, you remember that!!!!

    I'm not Dr. T, but I've been harshly bashed when I'm criticizing chippy and the rest of the inept GERN management team for not doing more to get the Hold released and to start testing overseas!!! Why hasn't he asked for a partial Hold release based on Dr. T's FDA response? Why hasn't he started overseas testing in Canada, Israel and Italy like originally planned? Simple questions, NO answers!

    Why is anyone so concerned about anything that I post? What's in it for them? I'm just one very upset investor!

    Has the thought occurred to anyone that we could have a bunch (or, maybe just one with multiple aliases) of INCY trolls on this board charged with keeping shareholders quiet? Maybe, Maybe Not!!!

    In any case, WHEN are shareholders going to wake up and STOP sitting on the sidelines and DEMAND to know what's going on with GERN? It will soon be 5 months since the Hold was imposed. Do we know anything more today than we did then?

    If you are a shareholder, ask yourself the tough questions! Are you satisfied with a $2.38 PPS? Are you satisfied with the lack of information? Are you satisfied with chippy and the rest of the team?

    If you aren't, WHEN are you going to wake up and DO something?

    Of course, IMO.

    lws: nothing could be further from the truth. They are NOT Top Secret.

    At what point do shareholder stop sitting on the sidelines and start demanding that chippy tell us what is going on? GERN has NOT proved trustworthy in the past and has done nothing to reaffirm trust.

    The Veil of Secrecy is there for a reason, we just don't know what.

    Chippy has destroyed our investment like little tommy did in the past. We have no idea WHEN or IF the PPS will recover. Investors would be far better in any partnering or buy-out if the PPS was higher.

    Wait and Trust Me only go so far. That boundary has been exceeded!!!

    Of course, IMO.

    hay: this is a very interesting development.

    No Hold? Most interesting of all.

    Wonder why the FDA choose to do nothing here?

    Wonder why chippy apparently has said or done nothing about leveraging off of this?

    Of course, IMO.

    Many of us would agree with you.

    When are investors going to wake up with chippy?

    Of course, IMO.

  • blackmarango blackmarango Jul 27, 2014 11:16 AM Flag

    lws: you're starting to post the same repetitive, unsubstantiated BS that end is famous for!!!

    We don't know what the agreements between GERN and Mayo are.

    And, chippy won't tell us.

    You know, they're Top Secret!!

    Of course, IMO.

    Help the PPS!

    daa: either you missed my point or, perhaps, I should have stated it more clearly.

    Items #3 & 4 would continue getting the word out. Under #5, I should have added publicity. My Bad.

    Publicity will turn up the heat on GERN and it might get the FDA to do something also. Senators and Congressmen are powerful when they want to be.

    A ground swell of letters and emails from MF patients to GERN, the FDA, public officials and the news media would better get the word out.

    My Bottom Line is stop sitting by on the sidelines, investors need to do something!!!

    Maybe we should ask Fidelity and MRK to turn up the heat?

    Of course, IMO.

    yog: you are correct.

    I have to wonder why Fidelity, with over 20 million shares and with a huge loss, hasn't weighed in? They took quite a loss within a month after the secondary. They should be quite upset. I'm sure that Fidelity executive who approved the buy is on the "hot seat."

    If Fidelity got together with MRK, I think that they would have enough shares to "force" some sort of action. Add disgruntled investors like me, and, they would have more than enough to "force" a change!!! As I recall, the last set of votes was very close.

    Yeah, I would fire both chippy and Huh. They've been disasters!!!

    Of course, IMO.

    da: not so fast!!!

    1. GERN's complete has has been in effect for over 4 months, now. Soon, it will be 5.

    2. Chippy has said that it will be Dec or later before they have the requisite data.

    3. GERN's could begin Phase II trials overseas in Italy, Israel or Canada as they originally proposed.

    4. GERN's could ask for a partial release based on Mayo's response.

    5. lot of other things.

    So, don't tell us that nothing can be done.

    Of course, IMO.

    george: before you put anyone on ignore, YOU SHOULD GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!!!

    1.This is the ONLY drug that has shown Complete Remission in some MF patients.

    2.The FDA's concern is long term low level toxicity and is it reversible, not high levels.

    So, now that you have the facts straight instead of your BS, put me on IGNORE!!!

  • blackmarango by blackmarango Jul 25, 2014 8:40 AM Flag

    Some of you guys seem pretty smart. Yes, you are very naive when it comes to corporate management and product development, but you can think. So, why is the PPS where it is instead of double digits?

    There is NO mystery! None Whatsoever!!!

    The Fantastic results of IMET treating MF simply have NOT been properly circulated to either the medical profession or the general public. We had someone, recently, post on this board that he was NOT allowed to present the Mayo/ IMET information on another board frequently used by MF patients. Speculation was that the board was "sponsored" by a competitor. How many other places is this happening?

    And, I'll climb on my soap box, again, early this morning!!!!

    What has our dear leader, chippy, been doing to promote IMET worldwide? He's been a total failure at getting the information out!! Another example of what I call a Veil of Secrecy? Why hasn't he been doing more? The chippy lovers tell us that there is some sort of secret deal between GERN and Mayo about results disclosure! Is there? If so, we need to be told about it.

    The word needs to get out for IMET and GERN to be successful.

    So far, the effort has FAILED.

    Come on guys, start thinking!!! GERN has to change it's strategy! What they are doing is simply NOT working!

    And, before some of you trolls bash me, take a hard look at the PPS!

    Fact, not Spin Doctor BS.

    Of course, IMO.

  • blackmarango blackmarango Jul 25, 2014 8:32 AM Flag

    bio: you are absolutely correct.

    lws is starting to sound like end with all of his unsubstantiated claims.

    But, the Bigger Problem is that chippy simply will NOT tell us what is going on. We need clarity!

    This needs to change!!!

    Of course, IMO.

  • blackmarango blackmarango Jul 24, 2014 10:37 PM Flag

    Wouldn't it be nice to know what sort of agreement/ contract was reached between Mayo and GERN?

    Come on chippy, tell us!!!

  • blackmarango blackmarango Jul 24, 2014 10:33 PM Flag

    If this was a study in mice/rats go back 8-10 years and see all the GERN research on 163L (that's what IMET was called back then).

    163L killed virtually ALL human cancer that was implanted in mice/rats. It didn't matter the type. It killed it. This fact was the factor that caused little tommy to proclaim that 163L was the Cancer Cure just prior to the Maui Conference.

    Unfortunately, the results haven't been as successful when tried in actual humans. I strongly suspect that these poor results in humans were the instigator for GERN beginning the stem cell trials because they thought that 163L would not be successful.

    The MF results were the first really good results.

    Why the major difference between mice/rats and humans?

    Guess that's the $ Billion question.

    Of course, IMO.

  • blackmarango blackmarango Jul 24, 2014 3:33 PM Flag

    supine: it's hard to envision a scenario where a higher PPS wouldn't benefit both GERN management and investors alike in any partnering or buy-out. That's one aspect why chippy's silence is so surprising. He should be out there singing the praises of IMET.

    But, he isn't. Why?

    There's an answer out there somewhere. We just don't know what it is.

    Of course, IMO.

  • blackmarango blackmarango Jul 24, 2014 1:11 PM Flag

    supine: that thought has definitely crossed my mind!!! What better way for INCY to transition from their current drug to a new and better drug and STILL be known (branded) for MF treatment? I'd consider that a GREAT strategy!

    When you have a Veil of Silence there is ALWAYS a reason and purpose.

    Our problem is that we just don't know what it is!

    Of course, IMO.
