According to Geron, the clinical hold affects all ongoing Company-sponsored clinical trials. Additionally, the Company stated that it has not yet received written notice of its clinical hold from the FDA but based on the verbal communication, the FDA indicated that the clinical hold is due to the occurrence of persistent low-grade liver function test abnormalities observed in the Phase 2 study of imetelstat in ET/PV patients and the potential risk of chronic liver injury following long-term exposure to imetelstat. Geron added that it plans to work diligently with the FDA to seek the release of the clinical hold.
