Beyond that, it is reasonable to think that a man of Tefferi's stature would not agree to announce a failure. Why would he bother to report about such a huge failure, when the world is looking for something positive, unless he is a wacko bird (McCain's term).
That is good advice. I don't think this will be a "home run". A single will do for now with the potential of scoring later. We are just at the beginning of telomere research, and the Mayo report will set the direction and pace of activity. I suspect that sometime in 2014 Geron will be merged into a much bigger team.
I think you are right. Imetelstat, IMO, will not cure cancer, but in will be a welcome tool in prolonging life in some cancers that are telomere sensitive. Not a home run, but perhaps a double. More important this concept will likely be part of a long, interesting pipeline that may last 100 years.
I agree with you. It is hard to believe that Tefferi would be announcing a failure. The question is: Is this Nobel Prise quality, or just a promising result? I am surprised that nothing seems to have leaked out from Mayo. If it were a huge breakthrough, I think the news would be out by now. It looks like something worthwhile, but not earth-shaking.
The proposed Keystone Gulf Coast Expansion Project ("Keystone XL") would transport additional Canadian crude oil to the U.S. Gulf Coast and bring total Keystone pipeline capacity to 1.1 million bbl/d. While Keystone XL approval has been delayed, prolonging startup to 2015 at the earliest, Enbridge has continued expansion plans with several debottlenecking projects which are expected to open up 1.7 million bbl/d of new markets through 2016.
Further to the announced plans to increase pipeline capacity to the U.S. Gulf Coast, Enbridge is also planning to expand crude transport capabiltiy to the Canadian Pacific Coast, for transport to Asian markets via their Northern Gateway pipeline project. Enbridge's current timeline calls for an in-service date beyond 2016. This proposed pipeline would have a capacity of 525,000 barrels per day. For transport to the Canadian Eastern Coast, TransCanada is planning the Energy East Pipeline, which will have an initial capacity of 525,000 bbl/d, expandable to approximately 850,000 bbl/d. This pipeline consists of two segments: the Hardisty-Quebec system, targeted for late 2017 and the New Brunswick Extension, targeted for mid-2018. Together with industry plans to provide increased access for Canadian crude to the major U.S. Gulf refining complex, these coastal-bound pipelines would ensure outlets and value for Canada's western crude oil exports.
No it was not him. There was a trouble maker named Ted Cruz, that was spreading malicious rumors. Check your sources.

It is probably true that this is the "future of medicine". Some company will be a superstar. Will it be Geron? I think they have some good bets, but is it their time?
Your will have to verify that thought. The evidence seems to be that Mayo is increasing its enrollment. Of course, it is possible that some studies are going very well.
