Aethlon Medical (AEMDD) Announces Health Canada Approval of Ebola Treatment Protocol

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (AEMDD) Announces Health Canada Approval of Ebola Treatment Protocol

SAN DIEGO - May 13, 2015 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCQB:AEMD, AEMDD), the pioneer in developing targeted therapeutic devices to address infectious diseases and cancer, today disclosed that the Medical Devices Bureau of Health Canada has approved a clinical study protocol to treat Ebola-infected individuals with the Aethlon Hemopurifier®. The Hemopurifier is a first-in-class affinity biofiltration device designed for the broad-spectrum elimination of viral pathogens from the circulatory system of infected individuals. The device targets antiviral drug resistance and serves as a first-line countermeasure against Ebola and other life-threatening viruses that are not addressed with proven drug therapies. Health Canada is the Federal department responsible for overseeing the health of Canadian citizens.


The Health Canada approved protocol is entitled, "The Treatment of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in Humans with the Aethlon Hemopurifier Lectin Affinity Plasmapheresis Device". The protocol allows for an investigational study of Hemopurifier therapy to be conducted in up to 3 human subjects. The objective of the study is to standardize and evaluate the use of the Hemopurifier as supportive care in the treatment of EVD. There is no assurance that the investigational study will result in the collection of clinical data that would support Health Canada licensing requirements. Aethlon further disclosed that the Ebola study protocol had also been approved by the University Health Network (UHN) Research Ethics Board, based in Toronto, Ontario.

Previously, Aethlon disclosed that the United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a clinical protocol to treat Ebola-infected individuals with Hemopurifier therapy in the U.S. The Company has also submitted a Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) application with FDA to support potential market clearance of the Hemopurifier as a treatment for EVD.

The first administration of Hemopurifier therapy to an ebola-infected individual occurred at Frankfurt University Hospital in Germany. On November 14, 2014, the resulting Hemopurifier treatment data was presented at the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) Annual Meeting by Helmut Geiger, M.D., Chief of Nephrology at Goethe University, Frankfurt University Hospital. Dr. Geiger reported that 242 million Ebola viruses were captured within the Hemopurifier during treatment, a number verified by a post-treatment elution protocol. The elution protocol has since be repeated, which resulted in second measurement of 253 million copies of Ebola virus captured within the Hemopurifier.

Dr. Geiger also reported that the patient's viral load prior to the administration of a single 6.5-hour Hemopurifier treatment was measured at 400,000 virus copies per milliliter of blood (copies/ml). A post-treatment viral load measurement was reported to be 1,000 copies/ml. The treatment was well tolerated with no adverse events reported. At the time of treatment, the Ebola patient was comatose and suffering from multiple organ failure, which required mechanical ventilation, continuous dialysis and the administration of vasopressor medications. The patient made a full recovery and returned home to his family.

About Aethlon Medical, Inc.
Aethlon Medical creates affinity biofiltration devices to treat life-threatening diseases. Our lead therapeutic candidate is the Aethlon Hemopurifier®, a first-in-class device that targets the rapid elimination of infectious viruses and cancer promoting exosomes from the circulatory system of treated individuals. Our majority owned subsidiary Exosome Sciences, Inc., is advancing exosome-based liquid biopsies to diagnose and monitor Cancer and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), a neurodegenerative disorder often found in individuals with a history of repetitive brain trauma.

About The Aethlon Hemopurifier®
Of the hundreds of viruses known to be infectious to man, antiviral drug therapies are approved for fewer than ten. The Aethlon Hemopurifier® provides a broad-spectrum therapeutic strategy to address drug resistant viral pathogens. To date, Hemopurifier therapy has been administered to individuals infected with Ebola virus (Ebola), Hepatitis C virus (HCV) and the Human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Time Magazine recently named the Hemopurifier to their list of 'Top 25 Inventions" and "The 11 Most Remarkable Advances in Healthcare." Beyond human treatment experiences, pre-clinical Hemopurifier studies have validated the capture of some of world's deadliest pathogens. These include: Dengue hemorrhagic fever, Lassa hemorrhagic fever, H5N1 avian influenza, H1N1 swine flu virus, the reconstructed 1918 influenza virus, West Nile virus and Vaccinia and Monkeypox, which serve as models for human smallpox infection. U.S. clinical progression of Hemopurifier therapy is being advanced under FDA approved clinical studies.

Aethlon is also investigating the use of Hemopurifier therapy to capture tumor-derived exosomes, a significant unaddressed therapeutic target in cancer care. Tumor-derived exosomes promote cancer progression through multiple mechanisms, which include seeding the spread of metastasis and direct suppression of the immune response. In regards to our therapeutic mechanism of action, the Hemopurifier incorporates a patented affinity technique that allows for selective binding to a unique structure that resides on the surface of tumor-derived exosomes and glycoproteins that coat infectious viruses.

Aethlon Medical (OTC: AEMD, AEMDD) Discloses Presentation of Preliminary CTE Related Study Results

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTC: AEMD, AEMDD) Discloses Presentation of Preliminary CTE Related Study Results

SAN DIEGO - April 16, 2015 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCQB: AEMD, AEMDD), a pioneer in developing targeted therapeutic devices to address infectious diseases and cancer, announced today that Dr. Robert Stern, professor of neurology, neurosurgery, and anatomy and neurobiology at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) has presented preliminary, unpublished findings related to research being conducted by Aethlon Medical's majority owned subsidiary, Exosome Sciences, Inc. The presentation was given earlier today at the 5th Annual Traumatic Brain Injury Conference being held in Washington, D.C.



The findings are part of the Diagnosing and Evaluating Traumatic Encephalopathy using Clinical Tests (DETECT) study, a research project funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), being conducted at BUSM's CTE Program. The DETECT study examines potential biomarkers for CTE by studying a sample of former professional American football players and a control group of same-age men without any history of brain trauma from contact sport involvement. In connection with the DETECT study, researchers at Exosome Sciences have been applying proprietary techniques to isolate microscopic exosomes that transport CTE associated tau protein (tausomes) across the blood brain barrier.

As part of the DETECT project at BUSM, blood samples from 78 former NFL players and 16 control subjects were analyzed by Exosome Sciences researchers. In the study, researchers were able to isolate and quantify the presence of tausomes in the blood. During his presentation, Dr. Stern reported that former NFL players' tausome levels were measured to be significantly higher than those of the control subjects. Moreover, in the former NFL player group, tausome levels also significantly correlated with performance on formal memory tests; the higher the tausome level, the worse the memory performance. In contrast, previous cerebrospinal fluid measurements of tau and phosphorylated tau in the same subjects were not significantly correlated with memory test performance. The results presented by Dr. Stern are preliminary and additional testing will be required.


About Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)
CTE is a neurodegenerative disease associated with a history of repetitive brain trauma, often seen in former contact sport athletes, such as boxers and American football players, as well as in military service members. Symptoms of CTE include memory impairment, behavior change (including impulsivity), and mood disturbance (including depression and suicidality), with advanced cases demonstrating dementia. At present, the diagnosis of CTE can only be made through postmortem examination of brain tissue, which demonstrates a unique pattern of deposition of an abnormal form of a protein called tau.
