On March 27, 2018, STAT, a news organization focused on medical industry reporting, published an article alleging that Geron's recent stock gains were due to "flimsy" claims regarding the efficacy of Imetelstat, Geron's experimental treatment for myelofibrosis. The report further states that available data for Imetelstat does not support Geron's representations about the drug's efficacy.

Following the publication of the STAT article on March 27, 2018, shares of Geron dropped by more than 13% to close at $5.15 per share. The stock continued to plummet into the next day of trading, closing down 17.86% on March 28, 2018, and causing significant harm to investors.
