    Novel Therapies in Development for Myelofibrosis Show Promise

     September 29, 2022
    Helen T. Chifotides, PhD, Srdan Verstovsek, MD, PhD

    During the MPN session at the 10th Annual Meeting of the Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO 2022), Srdan Verstovsek, MD, PhD, United Energy Resources, Inc, Professor of Medicine and hematologist oncologist at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, will highlight recent advancements in developing novel therapeutic strategies for MF during the Myeloproliferative Neoplasms Session on September 29, 2022.

    Lastly, imetelstat, a first-in-class potent telomerase inhibitor, yielded a median overall survival of 29.9 months (dose, 9.4 mg/kg) in patients with intermediate-2 or high-risk MF relapsed/refractory to JAK inhibitors in the phase 2 IMbark study (NCT02426086).26The overall survival benefit from imetelstat compared favorably with matched historical data for treatment with BAT after JAK inhibitor failure. The international, registrational phase 3 trial IMpactMF (NCT04576156) is underway to evaluate the potential survival advantage—an unprecedented trial end point for investigational MF therapies—of imetelstat in intermediate-2 or high-risk JAK inhibitor–refractory MF.

    Future Directions for MPN Research
    September 30, 2022
    Srdan Verstovsek, MD, PhD

    We are looking first to see whether the combinations that are exploring enhancement of the control of the sign symptoms, on top of JAK inhibitors, will actually do that well or well enough to be approved and considered everyday practice. We are also looking in the very near future to see whether any of these therapies can prolong life. Overall survival is already in 1 study with a possible approval with the drug called imetelstat, which is a telomerase inhibitor, a primary goal. This is a phase 3 randomized study in a second-line setting.

    Watch, with no other factors/news, GERN will spend the 4th Qtr. of '22 going up 50% as we head towards news one way or the other in January. look for $3.50/shr. With short levels at such historic lows for the company and institutional holdings at such highs, prepare for a great upcoming run. There is a reason like today where indexes are red/GERN is green.

    Yesterday the shorts shorted 66% of all GERN stock trades to drive GERN's stock price down. See it at Fintel's web site. Short sellers are buying up all the GERN stock they can today.

    The evidence is compelling. JNJ, AbbVie and Geron have been working on combinations of Imetelstat (Telomerase inhibitor) and Venetroclax (BCL-2 protein inhibitor) for a very long time, with amazing preclinical results that are now becoming clinical results (TELOMERE AML trial and JNJ successes for example). JS, Dr. Rizo and the ever-building Geron staff know that they have a winner and time is on their side. The key words are "enhances apoptosis" (kills cancer cells by two difference methods in combination).
