Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF"), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into Geron Corporation (Nasdaq: GERN).

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.
