On March 12, 2014, the Company announced it had received a verbal notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) that its Investigational New Drug (IND) application for the drug imetelstat had been placed on full clinical hold. In a company press release Geron noted that it has not yet received written notice, but that the FDA indicated that the hold is “due to the occurrence of persistent low-grade liver function test (LFT) abnormalities observed in the phase 2 study of imetelstat in [essential thrombocythemia] patients and the potential risk of chronic liver injury following long-term exposure to imetelstat. The FDA was also concerned whether or not these abnormalities will be reversible.” On this news, shares of Geron stock plunged over 60% to close at $1.69 per share, on extremely heavy volume.
