    Trump never would have gotten elected if the politicians had not failed this country so miserably the last many years. That is how Trump got elected and that is where the real blame lies is on our career politicians that look after themselves and their gold-plated retirements and a gold-plated Healthcare.

    W/ the 20/80 split on retail sales of IMET, I cannot imagine that JnJ would offer a buy out. They already have the golden goose locked up and will so for years. Opting in will cost 35M, a milestone payment, offering a buy out would cost 1/2 a billion at least. Where's the financial logic? Down the road, if the "billion dollar block buster" forecast by JnJ for IMET holds true, the 20%....200M a year is a large chunk of change and with those kinds of earnings would easily get the stock into the double digits. But buyout?

    STAY STRONG BOSTON ! REJECT RACISM IN ALL ITS FORMS !
    Especially the Republican Party which endorses racism and hate with their leader Donald Trump. There is NO DOUBT that Donald Trump is an overt racist.
    1) The Founder of Birtherism (yet Obama was proven to be a natural born citizen)
    2) Settled with the Justice Department over housing discrimination and denying blacks rental units
    3) Equating neo-Nazis and white supremacists as "many fine people"
    4) Considering pardoning convicted racist sheriff Joe Arpaio
    5)Trump on eugenics, "if you put together the genes of a superior woman and a superior man, you get a superior offspring"
    6) Trump on himself, "not all people are created equal. I have the winning gene."
    7) Launched his campaign by calling Mexicans rapists.
    8) Threatening to going to war with the parents of a Muslim soldier killed in battle
    9) Encouraged violence against minority protesters at his rally,
    10) Promising to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it.
    This man built his presidential campaign on racial resentment and fear.
    REJECT. RESIST. IMPEACH AND REPLACE. DELETE HATE.. AND MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

    They're reporting at ASH, we already know what they're going to say. Their drug works better than what's out there. It even works better for people as a front line drug for MDS and MF! And it cures cancer for some with MF. Buying. Buying a lot. I'm going to turn every $1 I put into GERN into $50.

    BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY!!!!!

    Several have asked how do investors make chippy accountable.

    Good Question!

    But, with few viable choices considering the current state of GERN affairs!

    The Board of Directors is supposed to protect investors interests from bad/ poor management. They are supposed to be the "checks and balances" in the corporate world.

    Thus far, the GERN BOD hasn't done much or anything.

    Want an example?

    Just look at chippy's compensation plan that is void of almost everything financial like income, revenue, fees, profit and PPS performance. They set the bar so low like attending conferences, etc. Come on now, attending conferences for a performance metric, that's RIDICULOUS!!!

    So, start communicating with the BOD. Flood them with comments. Demand that they do their job!

    See where this leads, and, try something else if it doesn't work.

    Have a better idea?

    Let's hear it.

    Of course, IMO.

    Left wing radicals want to takes down the socialist drain. Why? Why do they hate America. This is the progressive agenda. Destroy America. Venezuela here we come. The left wing dems will kill the golden goose. California wants to leave. Adios. Perhaps they should rejoin Mexico; as CA was part of the territory we stole from them in 1850. Hasta la vista,

    Despite all the noise generated on this message board, these Mayo results are why I am still invested in Geron.

    Bone marrow fibrosis was reversed in ALL 4 patients who had a complete response, and a molecular response occurred in 3 of the 4 patients.  Response rates were (_27%_) among patients with a JAK2 mutation versus 0% among those without a JAK2 mutation (P=0.30) and (_32%_) among patients without an ASXL1 mutation versus 0% among those with an ASXL1 mutation (P=0.07).  The rate of complete response was (_38%_) among patients with a mutation in SF3B1 or U2AF1 versus 4% among patients without a mutation in these genes.

    These results had Never happened with any drug therapy prior to Imetelstat.
