Geron Corporation (NASDAQ: GERN) is up 15% this morning after following an article yesterday by the Mayo Clinic describing the imetelstat data to be presented Monday at the American Society for Hematology (ASH) meeting. However, one analyst is not convinced that the articles has a lot of new info.

Needham & Company analyst Chad Messer states, "In so far as this article reflects the actual presentation, we don't see a whole lot that is new beyond the unprecedented efficacy reported by the company in November. We remain positively inclined towards the data but feel investors should wait for full presentation, as well as Geron's investor event, on Monday to understand the full story. Even then we may not know important details about the company's plans for further development of imetelstat in myelofibrosis."
