    Imetelstat mentioned in the same breath as Imbruvica?
  • We have entered into Phase 3 for IMERGE (They are recruiting participants): Here's what the current presentation from Geron says about the Part 1, Part 2 (Phase 3):
    - Part 1 (Phase 2) to evaluate safety and efficacy of imetelstat to advance to Part 2 based on positive assessment of
    benefit-risk profile in significant unmet medical need population
    - Part 2 (Phase 3) to compare imetelstat to placebo using an established regulatory endpoint

    Now here's what the IMERGE Trials data posted on Geron's web site says as of June 29:
    This study is currently recruiting participants. (It shows 46 locations are recruiting - I believe this is different than the 30 patients they recruited for Part 1)

  • oh donkey dee donkey doo
    clutters the board with half wit spew
    lacks the brains to make the ^A^ fud team
    so he pulls his pud and blows out steam.
  • JnJ/Janssen is currently running 205 clinical trials in 1122 locations. JnJ/Janssen ranks Imetelstat in their top 10. Looking Good
  • GERN is a train coming down the tracks and the shorts with their 34 million shorted shares are laying on the tracks. Johnson and Johnson are pouring the coal to this locomotive as with Johnson and Johnsons presentation this week calling GERN 1 of JNJ top 6 money making drugs.
  • Per clinical trials.gov identifier NCT02598661...they are recruiting for phase 3. Verified June 2017 by jannssen per the website. Isn't this what we were waiting on? Pardon the ignorance if wrong.
  • Seeing Imetelstat in the J&J report today as one of the top 6 oncology drugs, I came off my hold position and started buying Gern again.
  • Johnson and Johnson again yesterday called GERN's drug one of Johnson and Johnson top future money makers. Worth over $1 billion a year and yet the shorts with their 34 million shorted shares keep saying NOT TRUE, NOT TRUE. I hear panic in the short sellers texting here.
  • Should Senator John McCain start infusing on Imetelstat? Discuss.
  • I sure hope Mr William W. Basher has finally told a truth..Although i seriously doubt it..Can he really go away until the phase 3 decision? Per his very own post...If you have your eyes closed, you can't post

  • Johnson and Johnson just keeps bragging about GERN this week and JNJ is pushing GERN's technology forward to the max all while the shorts sit on 34 million shorted GERN shares. This is going to be really good for the people that own GERN stock.
    Short squeeze is coming.
  • GERN is under $3 only because the shorts have sold 34 million shares of invisible GERN stock that has to bought back yet at a much higher price. Seeking Alpha said that when the shorts cover GERN will soar to over $19 a share.
  • 1 GERON share will be =1 J&J share soon.
  • pumpers are so ineffective! can't even get this turd to 2.90.
