    FDA OKs Geron's first-ever stem-cell treatment trials

    NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Geron Corp. said Friday that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted clearance for it to begin trials for what it said was the world's first study of a human embryonic stem cell-based therapy for people. Geron said it will begin a Phase I multicenter trial designed to establish the safety of its treatment, currently referred to as "GRNOPC1," in patients with complete Grade A subacute thoracic spinal cord injuries.
