    As I had feared, the transfer of Dr. T's study does NOT enable GERN to start the IMET MF Phase II without further FDA approval.

    Chippy clearly stated that GERN must apply for either a Full or Partial Release of the Hold to begin the Phase II.

    So, as usual, our Spin Doctors have been BSing us!!!!

    Of course, IMO.

    I am really looking forward to "seeing" what Dr. Wotton does the first 6 months at ACTC.

    Hopefully, it will be a GREAT ride!!!

  • blackmarango by blackmarango Jul 14, 2014 9:09 AM Flag

    end: you remember back on June 27 when you made the forecast that the GERN Hold would be released within 15 days? You also remember that I asked you what this forecast was based on and you came back with some half baked, lame brained notion?

    Well, it's been MORE than 15 days and NOTHING has happened.

    Yes, you are good at internet searches.

    Yes, you've found some pretty interesting articles.

    Yes, you can technically converse, to a degree, about the effects of IMET on MF.

    No, you don't know about product development.

    No, you've not been part of senior company management.

    No, you don't know what chippy is thinking or doing.

    No, you don't know what Dr. T. is thinking or doing.

    No, you don't know what the FDA is thinking or doing.

    Stick to the Yes area where you can be of service.

    Don't give us your BS in the No areas. You've been just about 100% wrong in all your spin doctoring.

    Dr. Wotton

    keep: Unless we have been flat out lied to, the great results are there, just waiting to be released.

    As I have seen with GERN's Imetelstat results on MF, a large part of the problem is getting the results published in enough places where they are generally known and available to the public. For obvious reasons, this is not always something easy to do. Competitors just don't like to be put out of business.

    So, I'm hoping that one of the first things on Wotton's list is to start getting the results publicized. Period. Forget the NEJM if it's going to take months longer.

    ACTC investors have suffered for too long. It's time to begin the prosperous journey forward.

    Of course, IMO.

    Some of you guys are so unrealistic when it comes to a new CEO's performance.

    You wanted him to speak immediately and give you good news. I said give him a month and see what happens. He gave us some "good" news within that time.

    You wanted him to give good results immediately. I say give him 6 months and see what happens.

    I am optimistic that we will have "good" results soon.

    Of course, IMO.

    My take on today's move

    by trailblazer1777 Jun 30, 2014 9:31 PM
    blackmarango blackmarango Jun 30, 2014 11:08 PM Flag

    trail: you may be spot on. Considering the upward potential, I certainly do NOT understand why anyone would currently be short!

    Seems like the short would be much better off in other stocks!

  • blackmarango blackmarango Jul 16, 2014 11:22 AM Flag

    Of course it's Yellen. It's never the terribly inept GERN management who treats us like mushrooms. It's always someone or something else like the shorts, the MMs, the FDA, the Incy lobby, fill in the blank. This sort of BS is tired and old. It's sickening to ALWAYS blame the wrong entity!!!

    If chippy would start issuing some progress reports, if chippy would start IMET testing outside the U.S. if chippy would start some partnering with a successful Big Pharm, if , if, if, then, we might see some PPS Green progress.

    By the way, ACTC is currently GREEN. Guess they don't qualify for the Yellen Curse?

    Of course, IMO.

    Phase II

    yog: I do NOT think that taz and irish intentionally mislead us. I've seen taz post for many years. He's not that type. And, I think that irish may not have fully understood the situation. She's happy for John and I'm happy for the both of them.

    I HATE to SAY it but I've been Spot On right along.

    This whole situation with chippy sucks! GERN needs to find a CEO who know how to bring a drug to market. This bunch of clowns just doesn't have a clue.

    Fire chippy today, before it's too late!!!

    I'll probably get a bunch more thumbs down from all the board trolls. I think that they are very happy with the CC!!!

    Of course, IMO.

    Dr Richard Pazdur the FDA oncology chief

    Send your comments directly to the FDA and both your senators and congressmen.

    But, fellas, most of the blame belongs on GERN mis-management. Don't forget what we are getting for $2.2+ Million a year. There is no way that "lost" equates to "foresight."

    Of course, IMO.

    Partial Hold Lifted on MF

    Congrats to you too, irish!!!

    You have been a FANTASTIC source of relevant, first hand information.

    Sometime, we'll all have to get together and celebrate. Steaks and wine for you and John are on me!

  • blackmarango by blackmarango Jun 9, 2014 5:38 PM Flag

    I think that there was an encouraging and positive tone to the CC even though few new details were given.

    It was nice to hear that some new testing is underway but somewhat discouraging that they still won't release that Phase I results.

    I've been invested in this company for years so I guess another 6-12 months will have to do to see where ACTC really goes.

  • blackmarango blackmarango Jul 8, 2014 9:21 AM Flag

    So far, birdie has been 100% wrong with everything he's posted.

    Could he be right this time?

  • blackmarango by blackmarango Jul 2, 2014 4:35 PM Flag

    I know that many board members simply do not like Seeking Alpha (SA) and the information in the articles that they write.

    However, GERN had a nice little jump up on Monday largely because of the SA article and today ACTC also had a nice little jump (6.5%) because of a positive SA article.

    My point?

    We should be trying to get more positive articles from SA. The thought often arises that SA would be more responsive to news prompting than GERN's IR.

    Now, that's sad but true!!!

    Of course, IMO.

    These results are so Fantastic that they may be viewed as the modern day medical miracle!

    This is why I'm so disturbed that chippy appears to be doing NOTHING!!! Not even a progress update???

    Of course, IMO.

    When Did GERN Know?

    by blackmarango Jul 20, 2014 3:01 PM
    blackmarango blackmarango Jul 21, 2014 8:44 AM Flag

    supine: you are SO correct.

    I have often wondered if there was/ is a specific attempt to divert attention elsewhere with all the banter and drivel on this board.

    It IS MOST likely that the FDA followed their stated Protocol and contacted GERN long before the Hold of March 11-12.

    I would guess that the FDA contacted GERN and asked for some information giving 3-4 weeks for GERN to respond. After GERN responded, then the FDA would take 3-4 weeks for their answer. Assuming that the FDA answer was the Hold, then the initial contact was 6-8 weeks before the Hold. For multiple iterations, it would have been longer.

    What is your guess?

    Anyone else care to guess?

    Yes, I'm going somewhere with this thread.

    Of course, IMO.

  • blackmarango by blackmarango Aug 3, 2014 11:35 AM Flag

    I am beginning to wonder if we are starting to see some INCY trolls on this board?

    If you are a GERN investor, why aren't you concerned about the current PPS and lack of information?

    Just Follow The Money Trail.

    Of course, IMO.

    Question for you.

    Recall, that we did NOT have access to Dr. T's Abstract until it was released in November of last year.

    So, I'm not sure that we'll learn anything new on Aug 6th.

    What makes you think that we'll have any insight into what is going on?

    Just curious.
