About the Lawsuit

Geron and certain of its executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On March 12, 2014, Geron announced that the Company has received verbal notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") that its investigational new drug application for its only experimental drug, imetelstat for blood disorders, has been placed on full clinical hold, affecting its mid-stage trials of imetelstat because of low-grade liver function test abnormalities. The FDA expressed concern about whether these LFT abnormalities are reversible.

On this news, the price of Geron's shares plummeted by over 61%.
