    I was very upset that I sold my shares BEFORE the run up - but somehow I just lost believing in GERN. I bought EXEL and PPHM and INO instead in that order. I am NOT sad anymore - lol.

    TruffelPig, what do you think of CLDX? It is the only biotech i own now. I made some good money on SPPI and NEPT a month ago and sold them off. Didn't want to get too greedy.

    I have no specific opinion on CLDX since I didn't do any home work on it. I believe in extremely good home work on biotechs. I usually look when a company gets destroyed whether it was just or not. Bought ECYT for $3 and EXEL for $4 after deciding it was unjust. Won't buy the dip in GERN at all.

    I think it's time for Geron to test TA65 on cancer patients to see if it helps the immune system combat metastasis.
    Imetalstat never made sense to me.
    The recent studies seem to show that cancer is caused by short telomeres not telomerase. Telomerase activation might well be the answer by enhancing the immune system. I refer you to Maria Blasco
    recent study.
