Biotech Stock Alert; Aethlon Medical (AEMD) Note: Cancer Treatment Publication Authored by Aethlon Medical Researchers Now Available

SAN DIEGO - June 27, 2012 (Investorideas.com newswire) - Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD), today released the following note authored by its Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce.

On June 12 th, I issued a detailed note referencing a landmark discovery that cancer-secreted exosomes seed the spread of metastasis in melanoma patients, and added that the Aethlon Hemopurifier®, which we have been advancing with promising results in the treatment of hepatitis c (HCV) infected individuals, has been validated in vitro to capture a variety of cancer-secreted exosomes, including those tested from melanoma patients.
Last week, we disclosed that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) provided a Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Application No. 12/282152 entitled "Extracorporeal Removal of Microvesicular Particles," which provides us with broad rights to remove immune suppressive microvesicular particles, which include but are not limited to exosomes, from the circulation of treated patients.
Today, I am pleased to disclose that a paper authored by members of our Aethlon team, entitled, "Exosome Removal as a Therapeutic Adjuvant in Cancer" was published this morning in the Journal of Translational Medicine and is now accessible online at www.translational-medicine.com.
We believe the publication to be quite timely as cancer-secreted exosomes have recently emerged to become a vital therapeutic target as they play an instrumental role in promoting tumor progression by inducing programmed cell death of anti-cancer immune cells. As a result of inhibiting the immune response, exosomes increase the proliferation and spread of many forms of cancer. The particles also seed the spread of tumor metastasis, promote angiogenesis (essential for tumor survival and growth), increase tumor aggressiveness, and contribute to anti-cancer drug resistance.

Microcap Pharma Stock Investor News Alert: SUNSHINE BIOPHARMA'S (SBFM) Adva-27a FOUND TO BE EFFECTIVE AT KILLING MULTIDRUG RESISTANT LUNG CANCER CELLS

Montreal, Quebec, Canada - June 26, 2012 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Sunshine Biopharma Inc. (OTCBB: SBFM), a pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of drugs for the treatment of various forms of cancer, today announced that it has completed a cytotoxicity study of its lead compound, Adva-27a, in H69AR, a Multidrug Resistant Small Cell Lung Cancer cell line. Cytotoxicity studies measure the ability of a drug to destroy cancer cells in vitro. The results of the study showed that Adva-27a is significantly more effective at killing Multidrug Resistant Small Cell Lung Cancer cells than Etoposide, the current commonly used drug for this type of cancer. This is the second form of Multidrug Resistant Cancer that Adva-27a has shown effectiveness against. The first, which we had announced on July 11, 2011, was MCF-7/MDR Multidrug Resistant Breast Cancer.

"These findings are very interesting", said Dr. Steve N. Slilaty, Sunshine’s President and CEO. "Cancer cells become resistant to anti-tumour drugs by overproducing a certain type of trans-membrane proteins called ABC Transporters. These trans-membrane proteins bind and transport drugs from the intracellular milieu to the outside of cancer cells thereby making them resistant. Of the approximately 49 ABC Transporters identified to date, two are most often found in Multidrug Resistant Cancer: MDR1 and MRP1. The MCF-7/MDR Multidrug Resistant Breast Cancer cell line, which we had previously announced overproduces MDR1 while the H69AR Multidrug Resistant Lung Cancer cell line test in the present study overproduces MRP1. It is remarkable that our Adva-27a is able to overcome both of these resistance proteins", he added.

Biotech Stock Breaking News: Sirona Biochem (TSX-V: SBM, OTC: SRBCF) Announces Primate Results for SGLT Inhibitor for Type 2 Diabetes

Vancouver, British Columbia - June 20, 2012 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Sirona Biochem Corp. ( TSX-V: SBM , OTC: SRBCF, Frankfurt: ZSB), announced today results from a preclinical study of its sodium glucose transporter (SGLT) inhibitor in monkeys. When administered orally, Sirona Biochem’s SGLT inhibitor, SBM-TFC-039, triggered glucosuria in a dose-dependent manner. In addition, the glucosuria effect was robust for the full 24 hours studied.

"At the recent American Diabetes Association meeting in Philadelphia, it was apparent that SGLT inhibitors are a potentially ground-breaking treatment for Type 2 diabetes," said Dr. Howard Verrico, President and CEO of Sirona Biochem. "Preclinical results of our SGLT inhibitor, SBM-TFC-039, in multiple species have consistently demonstrated its efficacy and we are exploring data that may differentiate SBM-TFC-039 from the other SGLT inhibitors in development," he added.
SBM-TFC-039 is an SGLT inhibitor drug candidate for Type 2 diabetes. In the kidneys, SGLT inhibitors reduce the reabsorption of glucose into the bloodstream by eliminating excess glucose into the urine.
SBM-TFC-039 has been tested acutely and chronically in a rodent diabetic model, in addition to the latest study in primates. In those tests, SBM-TFC-039 has consistently demonstrated a glucose-lowering effect in a dose-dependent manner.

Biotech Stock News Alert;Aethlon Medical (OTC: AEMD) Announces Notice of Allowance of U.S. Patent Application

SAN DIEGO - June 19, 2012 (Investorideas.com newswire) - Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD), the pioneer in developing selective therapeutic filtration devices to address infectious disease, cancer and other life-threatening conditions, announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has given the Company a Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Application No. 12/282152 entitled "Extracorporeal Removal of Microvesicular Particles." The patent grants Aethlon the exclusive right to remove immune suppressive microvesicular particles, which include but are not limited to exosomes, from the circulation of treated patients. The patent describes a method to bind and capture immune suppressive microvesicular particles from blood with a medical filtration device containing single or multiple affinity agents, which can include antibodies, aptamers, beads, lectins, proteins, or other compounds that adhere to microvesicles. The USPTO further notified the Company that it has calculated a Patent Term Adjustment of 452 days on the Notice of Allowance.
Investorideas.com Newswire "This patent allowance provides a cornerstone that reinforces our opportunity to establish a dominant market position in the therapeutic targeting of immunosuppressive exosomes," stated Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO at Aethlon Medical. The Aethlon Hemopurifier�, which is a first-in-class device being advanced in Hepatitis C care, has demonstrated the ability to capture a broad-spectrum of immune suppressive exosomes underlying cancer. A therapy that could inhibit exosome proliferation would fulfill a major unmet medical need as corresponding drug therapies have yet to emerge.

In cancer, exosomes have recently emerged to become a vital therapeutic target as they play an instrumental role in promoting tumor progression by inducing programmed cell death of anticancer immune cells. As a result of inhibiting the immune response, exosomes increase the proliferation and spread of many forms of cancer. The particles also seed the spread of tumor metastasis, promote angiogenesis (essential for tumor survival and growth), increase tumor aggressiveness, and contribute to anti-cancer drug resistance.
Circulating microvesicles or exosomes have also been discovered to have immunosuppressive roles in infectious disease and may accelerate the pathogenesis of other disease conditions as they have been reported to induce or amplify inflammatory and pathological conditions including, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, neurodegenerative disorders, diabetes, and rheumatic diseases. Beyond its cancer and infectious disease treatment initiatives, Aethlon is studying the deleterious role of exosomes in sepsis through a contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
In addition to being known as exosomes, microvesicles have been referred to as epididimosomes, argosomes, exosome-like vesicles, microparticles, promininosomes, prostasomes, dexosomes, texosomes, dex, tex, archeosomes and oncosomes.

Medical Device Stock to Watch; Aethlon Medical (AEMD) Chairman and CEO Discusses Melanoma Exosomes

New York, New York - June 13, 2012 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research including biotech and pharma stocks, issues a news alert and company snapshot for Aethlon Medical (OTCBB:AEMD) , following news issued yesterday by the Company . Featuring commentary authored by Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce on "Cancer Research Discovery - Melanoma Exosomes Fuel Organ Metastasis".
Aethlon Medical (OTCBB:AEMD) develops medical devices to address needs in cancer, infectious disease, and other life-threatening conditions.
"Our first research into cancer-secreted exosomes was driven by the curiosity that exosomes seemed to carry a unique high mannose signature that is found on the surface of glycoproteins that coat infectious viral pathogens. This signature happened to be the targeted binding site of the affinity agent immobilized in our Hemopurifier®, and provides the basis for our ability to selectively capture HCV, HIV, and a broad-spectrum of other viruses. In well-studied viruses such as HIV, we knew that surface glycoproteins can shed to trigger apoptosis or programmed cell death of immune cells. Therefore, it made sense to us that exosomes might have these same immunosuppressive properties. However, at the time we initiated our research, the medical community consensus was that exosomes were nothing more than cellular trash bags with no meaningful biologic function. In fact, there were only a handful of researchers with exosome focused research programs. This is no longer the case. Many cancer research institutes are now pursuing exosome driven initiatives as cancer-secreted exosomes have since been verified to play a significant role in the invasion of the immune system in cancer patients. Additionally, researchers now understand how exosomes contribute to the development of tumor angiogenesis as a mechanism for cancer to survive. The harmful role of exosomes is also being identified in other life threatening conditions, including sepsis, a disease we are studying under contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
To date, we have demonstrated the ability to capture exosomes underlying a variety of cancers. As related to the discoveries by the Weill Cornell team, we fortuitously disclosed in September of 2010 that our Aethlon Hemopurifier® was able to capture exosomes derived from individuals with metastatic melanoma in a pre-clinical study. At present, we are fully focused on participating in a response to a new DARPA contract opportunity, expanding our HCV treatment studies, and preparing the resubmission of a investigational device exemption to FDA. Once these objectives have been advanced, we plan to discuss a potential melanoma treatment study that a U.S. based cancer research institute has proposed to conduct as a result of the Weill Cornell discoveries."

Biotech Stock Alert; Aethlon Medical (OTC: AEMD) Note: Cancer Research Discovery - Melanoma Exosomes Fuel Organ Metastasis

SAN DIEGO - June 12, 2012 (Investorideas.com newswire) - Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD), today released the following note authored by its Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce.
Investorideas.com Newswire Last week, Medical News Today reported on a cancer research discovery that reinforces the potential importance of our therapeutic endeavors. For more than a century, cancer researchers have understood that certain forms of cancer only spread to specific, preferred organs. However, the mechanism underlying the spread of organ specific metastasis (the "soil and seed" theory of 1889) had remained unknown. Based on new findings published and now available online in the journal Nature, researchers have identified that circulating cancer-secreted particles known as "exosomes" play a significant role in fueling the metastatic invasion of preferred organs. The paper concludes that exosomes offer promise for new therapeutic directions in the metastatic process.
We applaud and appreciate this ground breaking research as our Hemopurifier� has been validated to capture the form of cancer-secreted exosomes referenced in the publication. The same Hemopurifier� that we have been advancing with promising results in the treatment of hepatitis c (HCV) infected individuals.
In the study, researchers were interested to see if exosomes budding from melanoma actually participated in the course of the cancer. The answer was yes, and to a great extent. The researchers identified that melanoma cancer cells released "exosome" vesicles (microscopic particles like "bubbles" that are filled with many different molecules such as proteins and nucleic acids) that travel to the bone, liver, lung and brain. This cellular material fuses with targeted organs and establishes the environment to spread tumor cells. The researchers also reported that cancer-secreted exosomes triggered inflammation, promoted leaky blood vessels and educated bone marrow progenitor cells to participate in the metastatic cascade. The discoveries were led by a team from the Weill Cornell Medical College, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, with collaborative support from researchers at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the National Cancer Institute, and the US National Institutes of Health.
Dr. Hector Peinado, the lead author of the study was quoted to say: "If, in the future, we were able to find a way to control the education of bone marrow cells, as well as the release and content of tumor exosomes in cancer patients, we would be able to curtail and reduce the spread of cancer, and improve the patient's quality of life and survival." At present, I am not aware of another therapeutic strategy beyond our Hemopurifier� that offers to inhibit or eliminate the presence of cancer-secreted exosomes.
The Weill-Cornell researchers also identified that exosome protein levels in circulation predicted disease stage, prognosis, and survival in subjects with metastatic disease. When they compared circulating exosomes taken from patients with different stages of melanoma, they found that stage IV patients displayed much higher exosome protein levels as compared with earlier stage melanoma patients. If disease had not yet metastasized, exosomes were not present in circulation. The researchers also noted that stage IV patients with a lower presence of exosomes tended to have longer survival than stage IV patients with higher exosome protein content. Again, reinforcing the therapeutic potential of a device that could inhibit or eliminate exosomes from circulation.
Our first research into cancer-secreted exosomes was driven by the curiosity that exosomes seemed to carry a unique high mannose signature that is found on the surface of glycoproteins that coat infectious viral pathogens. This signature happened to be the targeted binding site of the affinity agent immobilized in our Hemopurifier�, and provides the basis for our ability to selectively capture HCV, HIV, and a broad-spectrum of other viruses. In well-studied viruses such as HIV, we knew that surface glycoproteins can shed to trigger apoptosis or programmed cell death of immune cells. Therefore, it made sense to us that exosomes might have these same immunosuppressive properties. However, at the time we initiated our research, the medical community consensus was that exosomes were nothing more than cellular trash bags with no meaningful biologic function. In fact, there were only a handful of researchers with exosome focused research programs. This is no longer the case. Many cancer research institutes are now pursuing exosome driven initiatives as cancer-secreted exosomes have since been verified to play a significant role in the invasion of the immune system in cancer patients. Additionally, researchers now understand how exosomes contribute to the development of tumor angiogenesis as a mechanism for cancer to survive. The harmful role of exosomes is also being identified in other life threatening conditions, including sepsis, a disease we are studying under contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
To date, we have demonstrated the ability to capture exosomes underlying a variety of cancers. As related to the discoveries by the Weill Cornell team, we fortuitously disclosed in September of 2010 that our Aethlon Hemopurifier� was able to capture exosomes derived from individuals with metastatic melanoma in a pre-clinical study.
