I think the MDS trial's potential success should help consideration of the continuation decision by Janssen, even if it's based simply on the MF trial. My presumptoion is that the continuation is forthcoming, sooner or later. It's in the interest of all parties - the patients, JNJ, Geron and also the FDA. I hope that the guys at Geron do not muddy the situation for shareholders with their acqusition bomb!!
This is scientifically different than in cancers where IMET is proven to be effective. It will be interesting to see if IMET is also useful in dealing with cardio disorders. If so, expansion of this compound's use will be much greater than even Janssen may have thought!
I wonder, if you really believe so, why are you still in GERN! Can't you find some more reliable and rewarding stocks even if you are a day trader? There must be hundreds of those in the market!!!
He doesn't listen!! He is a brainwashed baby of Scarlett!!! And, a short who thinks you area fool and will be lured by him to sell your holding so he can gain. Then, he is a bigger fool.
Let me answer his stupid question in one simple senrtence, "We cosider IMET much more important than Scarlett and his cronies on the board"!!!
This is quite normal for any such criteria document for a sophisticated study like this because specifics are revised as more participants review the document and details are developed for precise scoping.
Thanks, hbl, for the lead. I went through the changes dated June 22 and found that these changes are editorial and explanatory giving more precise details. I will not consider these changes to be any important or significant changes that affect timing of the trial and the follow up study. A couple of changes are rather a simplification of study-data requirements. All in all, the changes make the document more explanatory and a bit simplified.
IMET is much more important than Scarlett!! But, the poor brain of people like you can't comprehend that!! Go to a really good neurologist to have the defect diagnosed and then go through an appropriate treatment to be able to comprehend!!
I can't even find a source where it states that Scarlett in under investigation for insider trading!! From where did you get that info?
Rokky, I have been a long for at least ten years, since Okarma's time when Geron was a leading research company in the field of hESCs!! The deal with Janssen/JNJ for manufacturing and distribution of Imet can not be fully in the hands of Janssen/JNJ until the patent rights are also in their hands!! The secret of developing Imet is still in the hands of Geron and Geron management still can create problems for Janssen/JNJ for expanding their business. They must get rid of Scarlett and compnay and take full control of the company to go full-steam ahead.
If you read carefully, there is some role still for Geron to play. By stating FULL control, I anticiapte some kind of takeover by JNJ and not let Geron's management's attempt to keep skimming unearned huge compensations while doing nothing but becoming a thorn in the expansion of IMET application. I believe that neither Tefferi nor Janssen guys, and even the FDA guys, like Scarlett and company. Thus, they all jointly will try to squeeze them out.
There is absolutely no reason for GERN to get dragged down. Yet, it has created an excellent opportunity for those seeking to add more!
The copycats will scramble to get out!! But, that gives an excellent opportunity to shorts, both who want to short and those who want to cover cheap!!! What a brainwash by the betters!! But the fools will certainly fall for the brainwash. This Brexit is the best tging that took place. Now, the British will be out of the German-French dominated union, and will get its ties closer to the USA and its Commonwealth countries - India, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong and South Africa which jointly make up potentially a larger economic block than the bloody bloody bureaucratic EU. China will be now more nervous; but, the Russians will be happy to extend its friendly hand to Britain. All in all, the Sun will rise again for the British nation. Scotland issue will evaporate. But, the WS wolves and the spicy-stories seeking media will have a filed day to-day. What a bloody world!!!
