Q&A With Stephen M. Simes, President and CEO of BioSante Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: BPAX) Discussing BioSante's Pipeline into 2012

Point Roberts WA, LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. April 28, 2011 - (Investorideas.com newswire.com) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal covering leading sectors including biotech stocks and pharma stocks, features an exclusive Q&A interview with Mr. Stephen M. Simes, President and Chief Executive Officer of specialty pharmaceutical company, BioSante Pharmaceuticals. Mr Simes discusses the current product line of LibiGel�, Bio-T-Gel� and Elestrin� into 2012.
Postured to be the first-to-market with an FDA approved product for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction with LibiGel ®, Mr. Simes lays out the roadmap as the company heads into 2012.
BioSante Pharmaceuticals Interview
Q: Investorideas.com
Mr. Simes, can you give investors an overview of your first FDA-approved product Elestrin™?
A: Stephen M. Simes, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioSante Pharmaceuticals
Elestrin is FDA-approved for the treatment of hot flashes in menopausal women, an over $1.5 billion market in the U.S. alone. Significantly, the product development team at BioSante developed Elestrin from just a product formulation through clinical trials, a new drug application submitted to the FDA, and a full non-conditional FDA-approval. It is this same BioSante team that is working on our much bigger potential product, LibiGel.
Q: Investorideas.com
Your leading product, LibiGel ® (transdermal testosterone gel) for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) currently in Phase III clinical development, will bring BioSante to market first in this category - can you give us insight as to the significance of what this represents?
A: Stephen M. Simes, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioSante Pharmaceuticals
LibiGel is the only product in the world in clinical development for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction, specifically, hypoactive sexual desire disorder, for which there is no FDA-Approved product, a full 13 years after Viagra was approved for men. It is time that women had a choice for treatment of their sexual health. We believe LibiGel will be the first product to be FDA-approved for this exciting indication, estimated to be a multi-billion market. Importantly, there were 4 million testosterone prescriptions written off-label for women in the U.S. in 2009. Physicians surveyed commented that they will switch 96% of their patients over to the FDA-approved, precise metered dose alternative when it becomes available.
Q: Investorideas.com
Bio-T-Gel™, a testosterone gel for male hypogonadism, has a pending NDA; can you give us a brief overview of the status and predicted timelines for this product?
A: Stephen M. Simes, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioSante Pharmaceuticals
Bio-T-Gel is our male testosterone product already licensed to TEVA (NASDAQ: TEVA) for marketing in the U.S. The current market for male testosterone products in the U.S. is over $1.2 billion and growing. TEVA is a dynamic sales and marketing company and we are confident they can capture a significant share of market. BioSante will be paid a royalty on TEVA sales of Bio-T-Gel. The FDA's assigned target (PDUFA date) to complete their review of the Bio-T-Gel NDA is November 14, 2011. Therefore, Bio-T-Gel could be launched late this year or early next.
Q: Investorideas.com
Can you give investors a brief overview of the company's financial status?
A: Stephen M. Simes, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioSante Pharmaceuticals
At March 31, 2011, we had approximately $51.3 million in cash. This cash balance is sufficient to take us well into 2012 without any need to raise additional capital. We believe we have removed the financing risk from BioSante for the foreseeable future.

Biotech /Pharma Stocks Snapshot; Technology and Medical Devices on the Rise Within Healthcare; Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD), ELI Lilly (LLY) Medtronic (MDT), Pfizer (PFE), (Apple (AAPL)

Point Roberts, WA- April 27, 2011-Investorideas.com, a leader in sector stock research including
biotech/pharma stocks, reports on new trends in the healthcare sector where the industry is
reporting that medical technology is on the rise, and the development of new drugs may be
slowing down. The cost to bring a new drug to market, and the success rates may be a factor
in why some of the leading companies are looking at advancement in medical technology and
devices.

“In our case, we are leveraging our Hemopurifier® device to provide therapeutic capabilities
that target to improve infectious disease and cancer drug therapies,” stated Jim Joyce, CEO of
Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD).

Partnering technology to advance delivery of drugs is also a key to the future of healthcare. Eli
Lilly and Company (NYSE:LLY) and Medtronic, Inc. (NYSE:MDT) recently announced they have
entered into a collaboration to research and develop a new approach to treating Parkinson's
disease that involves delivering a potential new medicine to the brain using an implantable
drug delivery system. The goal of the collaboration is to develop a therapeutic approach for
Parkinson's disease that combines the strengths of Lilly's biologic, a modified form of glial
cell derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), with Medtronic's implantable drug infusion system
technology.

As technology plays a key role in healthcare , new players enter the market from within the tech
sector including Apple’s (NasdaqGS: AAPL ) iPad, predicted to potentially revolutionize the
health-care universe.

About the Company:

At Aethlon Medical, we create revolutionary devices to address infectious disease and cancer.
Our devices are designed to be novel platform solutions that fill therapeutic voids or aid in
disease diagnosis and monitoring.

Our Hemopurifier® is the first medical device to selectively target the removal of infectious
viruses and immunosuppressive proteins from the entire circulatory system. We recently
discovered that our Hemopurifier® captures tumor-secreted exosomes that suppress the immune
system of those afflicted with cancer. Prior to this discovery, a therapeutic strategy to directly
inhibit or reverse the immunosuppressive destruction caused by exosomes did not exist in cancer
care. By eliminating this mechanism, we believe our Hemopurifier® can fill an unmet clinical need
and provide the benefit of an immune-based therapy without adding drug toxicity or interaction
risks to established and emerging treatment strategies.

Human studies have documented the ability of our Hemopurifier® to safely reduce viral load
in both Hepatitis-C virus (HCV) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infected patients
without the administration of antiviral drugs. However, our initial clinical and commercialization
focus is to establish our Hemopurifier® as an adjunct therapy to enhance the benefit of both
infectious disease and cancer treatment regimens. In this regard, we plan to commercialize
our Hemopurifier® in India as we advance our clinical strategies in the United States and the
European Union. In vitro studies conducted by government and non-government research
institutes have also verified that our Hemopurifier® has broad-spectrum capabilities against
bioterror and emerging pandemic threats. These studies have confirmed the capture of Dengue
Hemorrhagic Virus, Ebola Hemorrhagic Virus, Lassa Hemorrhagic Virus, West Nile Virus, H5N1
Avian Influenza Virus, 2009 H1N1 Influenza Virus, the reconstructed Spanish Flu of 1918 Virus,
and Monkeypox Virus, which serves as a model for human Smallpox infection.

As a therapeutic device, the Hemopurifier® provides us with a pipeline into four significant market
opportunities:
1.Cancer: A treatment candidate to improve patient responsiveness to established cancer
therapies by removing immunosuppressive exosomes from circulation.
2.Hepatitis-C Virus (HCV): As an adjunct therapy to accelerate viral load reduction at the outset of
standard of care drug regimens.
3.Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV): Provides a potential therapeutic option for HIV-infected
individuals to manage disease progression once they become resistant to antiviral drug regimens.
4.Bioterror and Pandemic Threats: Represents the most advanced broad-spectrum strategy to
address untreatable bioterror and emerging pandemic threats.

The Hemopurifier® is an expansive multi-patented platform technology whose mechanism
of action can be leveraged to provide therapeutic, diagnostic, and biomarker discovery
solutions. As a therapeutic, the Hemopurifier® is a single-use disposable cartridge designed
for implementation within the established infrastructure of dialysis machines and other blood
circulatory pumps already located in hospitals and clinics worldwide.

In design, our Hemopurifier® is a selective filtration device containing affinity agents that
tightly bind to high-mannose structures unique to the surface of exosomes produced by cancer
and glycoproteins residing on the envelope of viruses. These agents are immobilized around
approximately 2800 porous hollow fibers that run the interior length of our device. The resulting
design provides us the novel ability to separate both exosome and viral targets away from blood
cells so they can then be selectively and permanently removed from the circulatory system. In
application, blood circulation is established into the Hemopurifier® via a catheter or other blood
access device. Once blood flow has been established, treatment benefit is immediate as the
entire circulatory system can pass through the Hemopurifier® in as little as 15 minutes.

Our wholly owned subsidiary, Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI) is focused on the development of
exosome-targeted products and services that improve cancer diagnosis, provide post-treatment
cancer surveillance, and aid in the discovery of biomarkers that allow doctors to optimize patient

therapy. Additional information regarding Aethlon Medical and Exosome Sciences can be
accessed online at www.aethlonmedical.com.

Certain of the statements herein may be forward-looking and involve risks and uncertainties. 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, the company's ability to commercialize its Hemopurifier® in India, capability of
the Hemopurifier® to reduce viral loads and other disease conditions or to identify or treat disease conditions such as
cancer or Hepatitis-C, including the ability to capture exosomes and the impact that potential ability may have on disease
conditions, the Company's ability to raise capital when needed, the Company's ability to complete the development of
its planned products, the ability of the Company to obtain FDA and other regulatory approvals permitting the sale of its
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, 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.

Biotech/Biodefense Stock News; Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Clarifies News Report

SAN DIEGO - April 21, 2011 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD) disclosed that it was the subject of an ABC affiliate station news story that included discussion of the company's proposed strategy to reduce the occurrence of sepsis in wounded military personnel. As previously disclosed, the company submitted a contract response on April 1, 2011 to a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) entitled Dialysis Like Therapeutics (DLT). In the submission, company proposed multiple capabilities including the development of dialysis-like therapy that would address the objectives of the DLT program. The company wishes to clarify that there is no assurance it will be invited to participate in the DLT program and that battlefield deployment of such a device is not feasible in the near future as suggested in the ABC affiliate news story. However, the company does believe that successful clinical outcomes in treating Hepatitis-C (HCV) infected patients with its Hemopurifier� technology does offer the potential for an early commercialization pathway of its Hemopurifier� in India. The company appreciates the coverage by the ABC news affiliate which unfortunately confused the potential commercialization timeline of our Hemopurifier� with the device proposed to be developed in our DLT response.

Biotech/Biodefense Stock News; ABC News Reports on Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD)

SAN DIEGO - April 20, 2011 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD), the pioneer in developing therapeutic filtration devices to address infectious disease and cancer, disclosed today that it is the subject of an ABC news story that can be accessed online at: http://www.10news.com/news/27605561/detail.html
About Aethlon Medical
At Aethlon Medical, we create revolutionary devices to address infectious disease and cancer. Our devices are designed to be novel platform solutions that fill therapeutic voids or aid in disease diagnosis and monitoring.
Our Hemopurifier® is the first medical device to selectively target the removal of infectious viruses and immunosuppressive proteins from the entire circulatory system. We recently discovered that our Hemopurifier® captures tumor-secreted exosomes that suppress the immune system of those afflicted with cancer. Prior to this discovery, a therapeutic strategy to directly inhibit or reverse the immunosuppressive destruction caused by exosomes did not exist in cancer care. By eliminating this mechanism, we believe our Hemopurifier® can fill an unmet clinical need and provide the benefit of an immune-based therapy without adding drug toxicity or interaction risks to established and emerging treatment strategies.
Human studies have documented the ability of our Hemopurifier® to safely reduce viral load in both Hepatitis-C virus (HCV) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infected patients without the administration of antiviral drugs. However, our initial clinical and commercialization focus is to establish our Hemopurifier® as an adjunct therapy to enhance the benefit of both infectious disease and cancer treatment regimens. In this regard, we plan to commercialize our Hemopurifier® in India as we advance our clinical strategies in the United States and the European Union. In vitro studies conducted by government and non-government research institutes have also verified that our Hemopurifier® has broad-spectrum capabilities against bioterror and emerging pandemic threats. These studies have confirmed the capture of Dengue Hemorrhagic Virus, Ebola Hemorrhagic Virus, Lassa Hemorrhagic Virus, West Nile Virus, H5N1 Avian Influenza Virus, 2009 H1N1 Influenza Virus, the reconstructed Spanish Flu of 1918 Virus, and Monkeypox Virus, which serves as a model for human Smallpox infection.
As a therapeutic device, the Hemopurifier® provides us with a pipeline into four significant market opportunities:
  1. Cancer: A treatment candidate to improve patient responsiveness to established cancer therapies by removing immunosuppressive exosomes from circulation.
  2. Hepatitis-C Virus (HCV): As an adjunct therapy to accelerate viral load reduction at the outset of standard of care drug regimens.
  3. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV): Provides a potential therapeutic option for HIV-infected individuals to manage disease progression once they become resistant to antiviral drug regimens.
  4. Bioterror and Pandemic Threats: Represents the most advanced broad-spectrum strategy to address untreatable bioterror and emerging pandemic threats.
The Hemopurifier® is an expansive multi-patented platform technology whose mechanism of action can be leveraged to provide therapeutic, diagnostic, and biomarker discovery solutions. As a therapeutic, the Hemopurifier® is a single-use disposable cartridge designed for implementation within the established infrastructure of dialysis machines and other blood circulatory pumps already located in hospitals and clinics worldwide.
In design, our Hemopurifier® is a selective filtration device containing affinity agents that tightly bind to high-mannose structures unique to the surface of exosomes produced by cancer and glycoproteins residing on the envelope of viruses. These agents are immobilized around approximately 2800 porous hollow fibers that run the interior length of our device. The resulting design provides us the novel ability to separate both exosome and viral targets away from blood cells so they can then be selectively and permanently removed from the circulatory system. In application, blood circulation is established into the Hemopurifier® via a catheter or other blood access device. Once blood flow has been established, treatment benefit is immediate as the entire circulatory system can pass through the Hemopurifier® in as little as 15 minutes.
Our wholly owned subsidiary, Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI) is focused on the development of exosome-targeted products and services that improve cancer diagnosis, provide post-treatment cancer surveillance, and aid in the discovery of biomarkers that allow doctors to optimize patient therapy. Additional information regarding Aethlon Medical and Exosome Sciences can be accessed online at www.aethlonmedical.com.

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, the company's ability to commercialize its Hemopurifier® in India, capability of the Hemopurifier® to reduce viral loads and other disease conditions or to identify or treat disease conditions such as cancer or Hepatitis-C, including the ability to capture exosomes and the impact that potential ability may have on disease conditions, the Company's ability to raise capital when needed, the Company's ability to complete the development of its planned products, the ability of the Company to obtain FDA and other regulatory approvals permitting the sale of its 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, 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.

Biotech/Pharma Stocks News; UV Flu Technologies (OTCBB: UVFT) Subsidiary Introduces RX6500 Air Purifier Designed for Counter-Bioterrorism Market

CENTERVILLE, MA – April 19, 2011 (Investorideas.com Newswire) - UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT) (the "Company") announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Rx Air Industries, LLC, ("RxAir") headquartered in Dallas, Texas, has introduced the RX-6500, an air filtration system specifically designed for Homeland Security applications.
The RX6500 features include an airflow of 2,500cfm, ozone free germicidal UV, micro-processor with data port for remote monitoring and alarm codes, and HEPA filtration systems that removes 99.97% of contaminants greater than 0.3 microns. The unit also has a chemical adsorption filtration pack specifically designed for military applications, providing protection against cyanogens chloride (CK), Sarin (GB), hydrogen cyanide (AC), and industrial gases such as chlorine. The unit can also create and maintain an isolation environment in a shelter up to 2,000 sq. feet, such as a mobile hospital or command center, up to required standards as proposed by the CDC.
RxAir (www.rxair.com) is a well-known and highly regarded manufacturer of high quality air purification equipment designed for applications within the medical and hospitality marketplace, and also includes products geared for specialized industrial applications, such as emergency preparedness. The RX6500 was one of three products included in the acquisition of the Company by UV Flu Technologies, but was never previously marketed due to capital constraints. The Company's two main products, the RX3000, which is the Company's best seller, provides air purification coverage in spaces up to 2000 sq. ft, while the RX4500, also known as the "Smoke Handler," is the preferred choice of hospitality establishments nationwide, and in a system of 2 units can protect spaces of up to 20,000 sq. feet, and can be connected to existing ductwork. Both units can remove more than 99.97% of airborne contaminants and pathogens greater than 0.3 micrometers in size, and are designed with exterior cabinetry able to match any d├ęcor.
"The RX6500 not only opens up huge new markets to us, it illustrates our capability to design, or alter our products for almost any application involving air purification," said Jack Lennon, President of UV Flu Technologies. "Given that RxAir products are manufactured here in the United States, we are taking steps to become eligible for bidding on military, as well as other government contracts. With all of the unrest in the World today, having a product that can clear a space up to 2,000 sq. ft, from poisonous or toxic gasses within minutes is an important tool to keep our citizens safe, whether from a terrorist threat, pandemic, or an industrial accident. Government or military buildings, schools, control rooms or hospitals are all potential markets for our products. Through continuous testing and product improvement, we plan to become recognized innovators in this multi-billion dollar air quality sector."
Further details regarding the Company's business, acquisitions, financial reports and agreements are filed as part of the Company's continuous public disclosure as a reporting issuer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") EDGAR database.
