Geron has issued the latest in a long series of press releases claiming that it will soon be applying to the FDA for permission to conduct human trials of a medical trial created with ESCR. Why this is news beats me. As I have pointed out previously, it has been making the very same claim for years, to wit:

Some suggestion of a pending request was also strongly implied as far back as 2002.

This is not to say that this will be another false alarm. But it is to say that perhaps the media should be a little skeptical and report about the many false starts that Geron has previously made.
