GenSpera (OTCQB:GNSZ) Announces Positive Phase II Data for Investigational Agent Mipsagargin

GenSpera (OTCQB:GNSZ) Announces Positive Phase II Data for Investigational Agent Mipsagargin

First-in-Class Agent is Well Tolerated in Liver Cancer Patients

SAN ANTONIO - January 16, 2015 (Investorideas.com Biotech Newswire) GenSpera, Inc. (OTCQB:GNSZ) today announced the encouraging results of a Phase II study of mipsagargin (G-202), an investigational agent for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The results will be presented today (12:00 to 2:00 p.m. PST, Abstract #301) in a poster presentation at the 2015 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium in San Francisco, California.

The Phase II results demonstrated that mipsagargin appears to be effective and is well-tolerated by HCC patients. Mipsagargin targets the enzyme prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), which is highly expressed in tumor vasculature and prostate cancer cells. The Phase II study results (n=25) demonstrate that the prodrug effectively stabilizes progression of HCC by reducing blood flow within tumors while not affecting blood flow within normal tissues.

"We are very encouraged with the positive results from this Phase II trial that demonstrate the tolerability and show indications of effectiveness of mipsagargin in advanced liver cancer patients," said Craig Dionne, PhD, chief executive officer at GenSpera. "Mipsagargin is a first-in-class agent with a novel mechanism of action that is unlike any other drug being tested in patients with advanced liver cancer. Based on the results of this study, we intend to move forward with a large, global Phase III trial."

Mipsagargin's targeted approach differs from other vascular targeting agents by destroying established tumor vasculature rather than slowing the growth of new tumor blood vessels. The PSMA-targeting agent is designed to minimize side effects commonly observed with other therapies, while maximizing activity against tumors.

"These results demonstrate the potential that mipsagargin has to treat one of the world's deadliest cancers," said Devalingam Mahalingam, MD, PhD, an oncologist at the Cancer Therapy & Research Center at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and principal investigator of the study. "In addition to observing prolonged disease stabilization in some patients, we noted anecdotal evidence that patients had improved performance status with much less fatigue and side effects associated with other anti-cancer therapeutics."

With Phase II complete, GenSpera is designing a large, international Phase III study which will further define the anti-tumor potential of mipsagargin in liver cancer patients. More information on mipsagargin (G-202) can be found at www.genspera.com.

Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most common form of cancer that originates in the liver. In the United States, more than 33,000 new cases will be diagnosed in 2015. Globally, liver cancer is a primary public health issue with more than 700,000 people diagnosed and more than 600,000 deaths annually. It is the most common type of cancer in Southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. A liver cancer diagnosis is often subsequent to other liver disease, making treatment of a highly compromised patient population particularly challenging.

Data Establishes Foundation for Continued Investigation
The Phase II study (Abstract #301) of mipsagargin was a multi-site, single arm study designed to assess time to progression and response rate to treatment. The study measured disease progression in 25 patients with advanced-stage liver disease and poor liver reserves who had failed first line treatment with sorafenib. Patients were administered episodic dosing of mipsagargin on the first three days of each treatment cycle. Study participants experienced a median time to progression of 4.2 months, nearly twice the time demonstrated in prior studies with placebo or ineffective agents. Thirty-five percent of patients received 5 or more cycles of treatment with an average time on study of 7.1 months. Additionally, mipsagargin demonstrated decreased blood flow in liver tumors as measured by DCE-MRI.

Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Announces Approval of Ebola Treatment Protocol

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Announces Approval of Ebola Treatment Protocol

SAN DIEGO - January 2, 2015 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), the pioneer in developing targeted therapeutic devices to address infectious diseases and cancer, today announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a clinical protocol to treat Ebola-infected individuals in the U.S. with the Aethlon Hemopurifier®. In the treatment of viral pathogens, the Hemopurifier® is a first-in-class bio-filtration device designed for the single-use removal of viruses and shed glycoproteins from the circulatory system of infected individuals. The device targets antiviral drug resistance and serves as a first-line countermeasure against Ebola and other viruses that are not addressed with proven drug therapies.


The approved Ebola treatment protocol allows for an investigational study to be conducted at up to 10 U.S. clinical sites, and up to 20 U.S. subjects may be enrolled to receive the treatment protocol. Patients who meet the enrollment criteria will receive a daily six to eight hour administration of Hemopurifier® therapy until the point that Ebola viral load drops below 1000 copies/ml. The goal of the study is to standardize and evaluate the use of the Hemopurifier® as supportive care in the treatment of Ebola virus disease.

The Ebola treatment protocol resulted from the submission of a supplement to an Investigation Device Exemption (IDE) previously approved by FDA. The supplement was entitled, "Treatment of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in Humans with the Aethlon Hemopurifier® Lectin Affinity Plasmapheresis Device." Based on the previously approved IDE protocol, Aethlon is conducting a clinical feasibility study of Hemopurifier® therapy in individuals infected with Hepatitis C virus (HCV) who are also receiving chronic dialysis therapy. A detailed description of the HCV study, including treatment protocol and patient inclusion/exclusion criteria can be accessed online at www.clinicaltrials.gov.

As the approved Ebola treatment protocol is a deviation from the HCV protocol, Aethlon is required to clearly distinguish data collected in the supplemental Ebola protocol study from data derived from the Company's HCV trials. The Company may not combine data from the two studies. Aethlon must also comply with specified patient protection procedures established by the applicable institution including its institutional review board approval prior to treating a patient under the supplement protocol. The Company must also report any unanticipated adverse events resulting from the supplement protocol to the FDA within 10 working days of the use of the device. There is no assurance that any Ebola-infected patients will be treated under the protocol.

Aethlon previously reported that Hemopurifier® therapy was successfully administered to a critically-ill Ebola patient 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 unconscious and suffering from multiple organ failure, which required mechanical ventilation, continuous dialysis and the administration of vasopressor medications. The patient has since made a full recovery and returned home to his family.

Time Magazine recently named the Aethlon Hemopurifier® to be one of the 25 best inventions of 2014. The magazine also included the Hemopurifier® as one of the 11 most remarkable advances in healthcare in 2014.

Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Initiates Patient Recruitment for FDA Approved Clinical Study

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Initiates Patient Recruitment for FDA Approved Clinical Study

SAN DIEGO - December 11, 2014 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), the pioneer in developing targeted therapeutic devices to address infectious diseases and cancer, today announced the initiation of patient recruitment to support a clinical feasibility study of Hemopurifier® therapy that is being conducted at DaVita Med Center Dialysis in Houston, Texas. The study, which will enroll individuals infected with Hepatitis C virus (HCV) who are also receiving chronic dialysis therapy, is being conducted under an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A detailed description of the study, including treatment protocol and patient inclusion/exclusion criteria can be accessed online at www.clinicaltrials.gov.


The Aethlon Hemopurifier is a first-in-class bio-filtration device that targets the rapid elimination of viruses and immunosuppressive proteins from the circulatory system of infected individuals. To date, Hemopurifier therapy has been administered outside the United States in the treatment of Ebola, HIV and HCV-infected individuals.

Under the feasibility study protocol, Aethlon will enroll ten end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients who are infected with the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) to demonstrate the safety of Hemopurifier therapy in an infectious disease model. Upon successful completion of the feasibility study, Aethlon plans to conduct pivotal efficacy studies required for market clearance to treat chronic viral indications.

The feasibility study will also contribute safety data to advance Hemopurifier therapy as a broad-spectrum countermeasure against category "A" bioterror and pandemic threats that are not addressed with proven drug or vaccine therapies. The virulence of such viral threats does not permit for human pivotal (efficacy) studies to be conducted. In the treatment of Ebola virus, Hemopurifier therapy is available in the US under emergency-use IDE regulatory provisions. The Company plans to pursue Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) approval pathways for Ebola and orphan indications that affect fewer than 4,000 individuals in the U.S. each year.

Previously, in vitro studies of bioterror and pandemic threats have verified Hemopurifier capture of Ebola hemorrhagic virus, dengue hemorrhagic virus, lassa hemorrhagic virus, H5N1 avian influenza (bird flu), the reconstructed 1918 influenza virus (r1918), 2009 H1N1 influenza virus (swine flu), West Nile virus, and monkeypox, which serves as a model for human smallpox infection. These studies were conducted with leading government and non-government research organizations, including The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The National Institute of Virology (NIV), The Battelle Biomedical Research Center (BBRC) and The Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research (SFBR).
