About GenSpera
GenSpera's technology platform combines a powerful, plant-derived cytotoxin (thapsigargin) with a prodrug delivery system that provides for the targeted release of drug candidates within a tumor. Unlike typical chemotherapeutic agents, thapsigargin results in cell death irrespective of the rate of cell division, which may provide an effective approach to kill both fast- and slow-growing cancers. GenSpera's lead drug candidate, mipsagargin, is activated by the enzyme PSMA, which is found at high levels in the vasculature of liver and glioblastoma cancers and in the vasculature of almost all other solid tumors. Mipsagargin is expected to have potential efficacy in a wide variety of tumor types.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Orphan Drug designation in 2013 for the evaluation of mipsagargin in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. Mipsagargin Phase II clinical trials are underway in both hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) and glioblastoma patients (brain cancer).

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).


About Aethlon Medical, Inc.
Aethlon Medical creates targeted therapeutic devices to address infectious disease, cancer and neurodegenerative disorders. The company's lead product is the Aethlon Hemopurifier®, a first-in-class antiviral and immunotherapeutic device that selectively targets the broad-spectrum elimination of circulating viruses and tumor-secreted exosomes that promote cancer progression. Exosome Sciences, Inc. is a majority owned subsidiary that is advancing exosome-based products to diagnose and monitor cancer, infectious disease and neurological disorders.

Such forward-looking statements involve assumptions, known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Aethlon Medical, Inc. to be materially different from any future results, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such potential risks and uncertainties include, without limitation, that the ESI will not be able to commercialize its future products, that the FDA will not approve the initiation of the Company's clinical programs or provide market clearance of the company's products, future human studies whether revenue or non-revenue generating of the Aethlon ADAPT™ system or the Aethlon Hemopurifier® as an adjunct therapy to improve patient responsiveness to established cancer or hepatitis C therapies or as a standalone cancer or hepatitis C therapy or as a broad spectrum defense against viral pathogens, including ebola, the Company's ability to raise capital when needed, the Company's ability to complete the development of its planned products, the Company's ability to manufacture its products either internally or through outside companies and provide its services, the impact of government regulations, patent protection on the Company's proprietary technology, the ability of the Company to meet the milestones contemplated in the DARPA contract, product liability exposure, uncertainty of market acceptance, competition, technological change, and other risk factors. In such instances, actual results could differ materially as a result of a variety of factors, including the risks associated with the effect of changing economic conditions and other risk factors detailed in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Reports Rapid and Sustained Virologic Response Rates in Hepatitis C (HCV) Treated Patients

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Reports Rapid and Sustained Virologic Response Rates in Hepatitis C (HCV) Treated Patients

SAN DIEGO - December 2, 2014 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), the pioneer in developing targeted therapeutic devices to address infectious disease and cancer, today reported final clinical outcomes, including rapid virologic response (RVR) and sustained virologic response (SVR) rates, in Hepatitis-C virus (HCV) infected individuals who received Hemopurifier® therapy during a clinical study conducted at the Medanta Medicity Institute in India. Aethlon is now preparing to launch its first human clinical studies 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. The device is a leading broad-spectrum treatment countermeasure against viral pathogens that are not treatable with drug or vaccine therapies. In HCV care, the device is positioned to address antiviral drug resistance and hard-to-treat patients who are unable to tolerate normally administered doses of antiviral drugs or peginterferon+ribavirin (PR) therapy. It is estimated that approximately 170 million people worldwide are infected with HCV, which leads to chronic liver disease or cirrhosis, and is a leading cause of liver transplantation.

In addition to reporting RVR and SVR rates, Aethlon disclosed that it achieved the following clinical objectives of the HCV study:
·        To demonstrate that Hemopurifier® therapy could be administered safely in non-dialysis patients who were infected with HCV.
·        To demonstrate the ability to combine Hemopurifier® therapy with an established therapeutic drug regimen.
·        To demonstrate that the brief inclusion of Hemopurifier® therapy can improve the normally expected benefit of a therapeutic drug regimen.
·        To establish an elution protocol that allows researchers to quantify the number of viruses captured within the Hemopurifier® during a single treatment.

In the study, HCV-infected individuals were enrolled to receive three six-hour Hemopurifier® treatments during the first three days of a 48-week peginterferon+ribavirin (PR) treatment regimen. The study was conducted under the leadership of Dr. Vijay Kher at the Medanta Medicity, a multi-specialty medical institute established to be a premier center for medical tourism in India. Aethlon reported that Hemopurifier® therapy was well tolerated and without device-related adverse events in twelve treated patients. Of these twelve patients, ten completed the Hemopurifier-PR treatment protocol, including eight genotype-1 patients and two genotype-3 patients. Eight of the ten patients (n=8/10) achieved a sustained virologic response (SVR), which is the clinical definition of treatment cure and is defined as undetectable HCV RNA 24-weeks after the completion of the 48-week PR drug regimen. Both genotype-3 patients achieved a SVR (n=2/2), while six of the eight genotype-1 patients achieved a SVR (n=6/8).

Of the ten patients that completed the full treatment protocol, five (n=5/10) also achieved a rapid virologic response (RVR), defined as undetectable HCV RNA at day 30 of therapy. RVR represents the clinical endpoint that best predicts SVR cure rates resulting from PR therapy.

As a point of reference, the landmark IDEAL Study of 3,070 HCV genotype-1 patients documented that 10.35% (n=318/3070) of PR treated patients achieved a RVR. Patients that achieved a RVR had SVR rates of 86.2% (n=274/318) versus SVR rates of 32.5% (n=897/2752) in non-RVR patients. Aethlon also disclosed that two of the genotype-1 patients who achieved a RVR also achieved an immediate virologic response (IVR), defined as undetectable HCV RNA seven days after initiation of Hemopurifier-PR treatment protocol. The incidence of IVR was not reported in the IDEAL study.

Data from two patients was not included in the reported Hemopurifier-PR dataset. One of these patients was a genotype-5 patient who discontinued PR therapy at day 180, yet still achieved a SVR. The second patient was a genotype-3 patient who also achieved a SVR, yet was unable to tolerate PR therapy and discontinued therapy at day-90. Overall, ten of the twelve patients (n=10/12) who enrolled in the study achieved a SVR and seven of the twelve (n=7/12) patients achieved an RVR.

Aethlon further disclosed that it established an elution protocol during the study that allowed researchers to quantify the number of viruses captured within the Hemopurifier® during a single treatment. As a result, researchers were able the measure that as many as 300 billion copies of HCV had been captured during a single six-hour treatment.

Aethlon is now preparing to launch the first U.S. clinical Hemopurifier® based on the United States Food and Drug Administration's (FDA)'s approval of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE). The study, which will be conducted at the DaVita MedCenter Dialysis in Houston, Texas, will contribute safety data to support the advancement of Hemopurifier® therapy as a broad-spectrum countermeasure against bioterror and pandemic threats and chronic viral pathogens such as HIV and HCV. Hemopurifier® therapy is available to treat Ebola patients in the U.S. 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 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).
