Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Announces First Hemopurifier® Shipment To Support the Treatment of Ebola in the United States

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Announces First Hemopurifier® Shipment To Support the Treatment of Ebola in the United States

SAN DIEGO - November 26, 2014 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), the pioneer in developing targeted therapeutic devices to address infectious disease and cancer, today announced the first shipment of Hemopurifier® therapy as a candidate to treat future Ebola virus infections in the United States. 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.


Aethlon disclosed that four Hemopurifiers have been shipped to the Biocontainment Unit at the Nebraska Medical Center (NMC) in Omaha as a therapeutic option to be stockpiled for Ebola patients that may be treated at the NMC. Aethlon further disclosed that it has provided onsite training to NMC clinical personnel related to the implementation of Hemopurifier® therapy within the dialysis infrastructure already located at the center.

The Nebraska Biocontainment Unit was commissioned by The United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in 2005. It is a joint project involving Nebraska Medicine, Nebraska Health and Human Services, and the University of Nebraska Medical Center. It was designed to provide the first line of treatment for people affected by bioterrorism or extremely infectious naturally occurring diseases such as Ebola. It's the largest facility of its kind in the U.S. The NMC has treated three Ebola patients since the current outbreak. Additional details can be found online at: www.nebraskamed.com/biocontainment-unit

Aethlon previously reported the successful administration of Hemopurifier® therapy to a Ugandan doctor who was infected with Ebola virus and treated at the Frankfurt University Hospital in Germany. At the time Hemopurifier® therapy was administered, the doctor was unconscious and suffered from multiple organ failure. His 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). Post-treatment viral load was measured at 1,000 copies/ml and never again rose above that level. Viral load became undetectable five days after therapy. The treatment was well tolerated with no adverse events reported.

Additionally, a post-treatment elution protocol verified that 242 million Ebola viruses were captured within the Hemopurifier® during treatment. The doctor has since made a full recovery and has returned home to his family in Uganda.

In the United States, Hemopurifier® therapy is available to treat Ebola patients through FDA expanded access "emergency use" provisions to address life threatening circumstances for which an alternative therapy is not available. At present, no antiviral therapy or vaccine has proven to be effective against Ebola virus infection in humans. Aethlon disclosed that it provided Hemopurifiers to the NMC on a humanitarian basis and therefore will not generate revenues as a result of its initial shipment.

Aethlon will soon begin the first U.S. clinical Hemopurifier® studies following the United States Food and Drug Administration's (FDA)'s approval of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE). The study will contribute safety data to advance the device as a broad-spectrum countermeasure against bioterror and pandemic threats, including Ebola and chronic viral pathogens such as HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV).

SAN DIEGO - November 25, 2014 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), the pioneer in developing targeted therapeutic devices to address infectious disease and cancer, disclosed today that an Ebola patient who received Hemopurifier® therapy has been reported to have been discharged from Frankfurt University Hospital in Germany.

Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Discloses Expanded Access "Emergency Use" Pathway to Treat Ebola in the United States

Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Discloses Expanded Access "Emergency Use" Pathway to Treat Ebola in the United States

SAN DIEGO - November 19, 2014 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), the pioneer in developing targeted therapeutic devices to address infectious disease and cancer, disclosed today that it will provide Hemopurifier® therapy under FDA expanded access "emergency use" provisions to support requests from qualified physicians and institutes that may seek to treat ebola virus infection in the United States.


Aethlon previously disclosed that it would provide Hemopurifier® therapy on a humanitarian basis through FDA compassionate use access provisions, which allow for the use of an investigational device to treat an individual patient or small group based on clearance by FDA prior to treatment.

Based on FDA guidance, Aethlon will now provide Hemopurifier® therapy to treat Ebola infection through expanded access "emergency use" provisions in the United States. Expanded access "emergency use" of an investigational device does not require advance FDA approval for life threatening circumstances for which an alternative therapy is not available. At present, no antiviral therapy or vaccine has proven to be effective against Ebola virus infection in humans.

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. In the treatment of Ebola, Aethlon recently announced that Hemopurifier® therapy was administered to Ugandan physician, who was infected with Ebola in Sierra Leone where he was treating Ebola patients. At the time of treatment, which occurred at Frankfurt University Hospital in Germany, the patient was unconscious and suffering from multiple organ failure.

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). Post-treatment viral load was measured at 1,000 copies/ml and never again rose above that level. The treatment was well tolerated with no adverse events reported. Additionally, a post-treatment elution protocol verified that 242 million Ebola viruses were captured within the Hemopurifier® during treatment. Since the administration of Hemopurifier® therapy, Frankfurt University Hospital officials have reported that the Ebola virus is no longer detectable in the patient's blood and full recovery is expected.

Aethlon will soon begin the first U.S. clinical Hemopurifier® studies following the United States Food and Drug Administration's (FDA)'s approval of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE). The study will contribute safety data to advance the device as a broad-spectrum countermeasure against pandemic threats, including Ebola and chronic viral pathogens such as HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV).

Aethlon Medical's (OTCBB: AEMD) Hemopurifier® Used in Successful Treatment of Patient with Advanced Ebola Infection

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical's (OTCBB: AEMD) Hemopurifier® Used in Successful Treatment of Patient with Advanced Ebola Infection

242 Million Copies of Ebola Virus Removed from Patient during Treatment, Physician Reports at American Society of Nephrology Annual Meeting

SAN DIEGO and PHILADELPHIA - November 14, 2014 (Investorideas.com newswire) The Aethlon Hemopurifier® was used in the successful treatment of a critically-ill Ebola-infected patient in Frankfurt, Germany, according to data presented today at the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) Annual Meeting by Helmut Geiger, M.D., Chief of Nephrology at Goethe University, Frankfurt University Hospital. Geiger reported that 242 million Ebola viruses were captured within the Aethlon Hemopurifier® during treatment, a number verified by a post-treatment elution protocol. The patient is no longer infected with Ebola virus and is expected to make a full recovery.


Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), the pioneer in developing targeted therapeutic devices to treat infectious disease, created the Hemopurifier®, a first-in-class bio-filtration device that targets the rapid elimination of viruses and immunosuppressive proteins from the circulatory system of infected individuals.

The Frankfurt University Hospital patient, a Ugandan physician, who was infected with Ebola in Sierra Leone where he was treating Ebola patients, was not administered Hemopurifier® therapy until 12 days after being diagnosed.

At the time of Hemopurifier® administration, Dr. Geiger reported that 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's viral load prior to the administration of a single 6.5-hour Hemopurifier® treatment was measured 400,000 virus copies per milliliter of blood (copies/ml). Post-treatment viral load was measured at 1,000 copies/ml and never again rose above that level. The treatment was well tolerated with no adverse events reported.

Since the administration of Hemopurifier® therapy, Frankfurt University Hospital officials have reported that Ebola virus is no longer detectable in the patient's blood and full recovery is expected.

"The rate of viral load reduction and magnitude of Ebola virus captured within the Hemopurifier® is quite remarkable when considering the lethality of Ebola infection and the compromised health of the patient," stated James A. Joyce, Chairman and CEO of Aethlon Medical. "We're thrilled for the patient and applaud the tireless effort of physicians in Frankfurt who helped to save the patient's life. We will continue to advance Hemopurifier® therapy as a lead candidate to address antiviral drug resistance and the sole broad-spectrum strategy to address Ebola other viruses where drugs and vaccines have not proven to be effective."

Aethlon will soon begin the first U.S. clinical Hemopurifier® studies following the United States Food and Drug Administration's (FDA)'s approval of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE). The study will contribute safety data to advance the device as a broad-spectrum countermeasure against pandemic threats, including Ebola and chronic viral pathogens such as HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV).
