Biopharma Q&A Interview; Dr. Steve N. Slilaty Ph.D., Chairman, CEO of Sunshine Biopharma (OTCQB: SBFM) Shares Insight into Recent Company Move and Updates Lead Cancer Compound Adva-27a

New York, NY, Point Roberts, WA - December 19, 2013 (Investorideas.com Biotech Newswire) Investorideas.com, a research and news portal covering leading sectors, issues an exclusive Q&A interview with Dr. Steve N. Slilaty Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of Sunshine Biopharma Inc. (OTCQB: SBFM). Sunshine is Biopharma a pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of drugs for the treatment of various forms of cancer.

Dr. Steve N. Slilaty shares insight to the recent news that it has re-domiciled in Canada for expansion through acquisitions and to gain access to various financing opportunities available to Canadian corporations, in addition to updating the current status of its lead cancer product Adva-27a.
Q: Investorideas.com
Dr. Slilaty can you explain to investors the significance of the recent move to Canada corporately and what direct benefits are realized?
A: Dr. Steve N. Slilaty Ph.D., Chairman, CEO
There are several advantages relating to the fiscal environment in Canada which are conducive to companies planning to expand through acquisitions. For example, there are provisions in the Canadian Tax Act which allow Canadian companies to acquire other Canadian companies in a share exchange transaction on a tax exempt basis. In addition, there are significant tax credits available to Canadian companies conducting R&D in Canada and Sunshine’s drug development program would benefit a great deal such tax provisions.
Q: Investorideas.com
For investors unfamiliar with your company, can you give a brief history of some of the data and testing on your lead compound Adva-27a and the basic principle of how it works?
A: Dr. Steve N. Slilaty Ph.D., Chairman, CEO
Adva-27a is Topoisomerase 2 inhibitor. Suppression of Topoisomerase 2 enzyme activity is a well-established anticancer target. Unlike all existing Topoisomerase 2 inhibitors, Adva-27a continues to work even when cells become multidrug resistant. This remarkable property is unique to Adva-27a! Our preclinical studies to date have shown that:
  • Adva-27a is effective at killing different types of multidrug resistant cancer cells, including:
    • Breast Cancer Cells (MCF-7/MDR)
    • Small-Cell Lung Cancer Cells (H69AR)
    • Uterine Cancer (MES-SA/Dx5)
    • Pancreatic Cancer (Panc-1)
  • Adva-27a is unaffected by P-Glycoprotein, the enzyme responsible for making cancer cells resistant to anti-tumor drugs
  • Adva-27a has excellent clearance time (half-life = 54 minutes) as indicated by human microsomes stability studies and pharmacokinetics data in rats
  • Adva-27a clearance is independent of Cytochrome P450, a mechanism that is less likely to produce toxic intermediates
  • Adva-27a is an excellent inhibitor of Topoisomerase II with an IC50 of only 13.7 micromolar
  • Adva-27a has shown excellent pharmacokinetics profile as indicated by studies done in rats
  • Adva-27a does not inhibit tubulin assembly
  • Adva-27a exhibits low toxicity levels as indicated by measurements using the non-cancerous cell line, HMEC
Q: Investorideas.com
With data on multiple cancers, is there one area the company will focus on specifically?
A: Dr. Steve N. Slilaty Ph.D., Chairman, CEO
Yes, we are initially focused on treating breast cancer patients whose disease has become multidrug resistant. These patients currently have no treatment options available to them as all existing anticancer drugs cease to work. We are anxious to make our Adva-27a available to them soon. To this end, we have signed an agreement with McGill University’s Jewish General Hospital here in Montreal ( Canada) to conduct Phase I clinical trials on such patients. This is the first step in our clinical development program of Adva-27a.
Q: Investorideas.com
For investors unfamiliar with the difference between getting approval in Canada vs. US FDA approval, can you explain the process in Canada, the timelines, cost and what is next for Sunshine Biopharma?
A: Dr. Steve N. Slilaty Ph.D., Chairman, CEO
The approval process in Canada is very similar to that of the United States. Health Canada has very similar guidelines to those established by the FDA in the U.S. In fact, our Phase I clinical trials protocols are compliant with the requirements on both sides of the boarder and we will be able to file our results both in Canada and the US pretty much simultaneously. In terms of timelines, like the U.S., Canada has a so-called “fast-track” process for which is available for drugs that treat terminally ill patients as is the case with Adva-27a. Next, we anticipate initiating the human trials following completion of our next round of financing.
About Adva-27a
Adva-27a is Sunshine Biopharma's lead anticancer compound, a small molecule that has recently been shown to be effective at killing multidrug resistant breast cancer cells, small-cell lung cancer cells, uterine sarcoma cells and pancreatic cancer cells (Published in ANTICANCER RESEARCH, Volume 32, Pages 4423-4432, October 2012). Adva-27a is currently in the IND-Enabling stage of development. The original U.S. patent covering Adva-27a was issued on August 7, 2012 under US patent number 8,236,935.

Exosomes; Nano-Scale Bubbles Creating Waves in Diagnostics and Therapeutics

New York, NY, Point Roberts, WA - December 17, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor news and research portal issues an exclusive sector snapshot on the rapidly growing exosome market and opportunities with key insight from Enal Razvi, Ph.D, Biotechnology Analyst and Managing Director of SelectBio U.S.

For investors unfamiliar with exosomes, they are cell-derived vesicles that are present in most biological fluids including blood and urine, as well as other body fluids. Because the fluids are easily accessible, they can be used as markers for disease progression. Exosomes are described as tiny, nano-scale bubbles that are released from cells capable of intercellular communication.
"Only five years ago the principals of communicating within the body were hormones, immunology or neurology and now we have found another way of communicating and sending genetic signals between cells,” Life Technologies Corp (LIFE).
So why is something so small creating such a huge buzz? Two key significant areas of growth in the sector are diagnostics and therapeutics for diseases such as cancer.
According to a report earlier this year from Select Biosciences, "Exosome research is growing exponentially as researchers from several disparate disciplines are exploring the role of exosomes in inter-cellular communication, immunological responses, stem cell behavior, cancer cell communication, etc. Indeed, the potential of exosomes and other classes of microvesicles as a means of molecular cargo transport is being intensively studied. "
Enal Razvi, Ph.D, Biotechnology Analyst and Managing Director of SelectBio U.S, one of a few experts covering the space, shared insight with Investorideas.com in a recent conversation.
When we asked Enal to discuss what publicly traded companies are in this new sector for investors, he said there are only a few to watch including Life Technologies Corp (LIFE) (currently being acquired by Thermo Fisher Scientific), Eli Lilly (LLY) (due to their partnership with Exosome Diagnostics) and Aethlon Medical (AEMD).
He went on to say, "Investors need to be aware of changes exosomes allow, making companion diagnostics a reality. Exosomes can create a paradigm shift for companion diagnostics based on circulating biomarkers.
"Five years from now, or sooner, exosomes will become a key diagnostic tool for cancers. If we don’t know the origin of tumors; biomarkers can narrow down the source.
Why investors should pay attention to the space is because exosomes can significantly reduce the cost and increase the compliance, primarily for cancer, and make biopsies for personal medicine longitudinal sense. It becomes a very invasive process for a patient to get ongoing biopsies, so this new method of using exosomes for diagnostics is very exciting for patients.
Currently the research market for exosomes is about $50 million but this does not account for the opportunities in the diagnostics space which will drive market growth and value creation.”
Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) is one of the only companies that may be able to participate in both diagnostics and therapeutics in the exosome space. The company recently announced the launch of Exosome Sciences (ESI) as a subsidiary that is advancing exosome-based strategies to diagnose and monitor the progression of cancer, infectious disease and other life-threatening conditions. Aethlon also attracted two of the best-known thought leaders in the exosome industry to play key roles in the new company.
"We are well positioned to benefit from the exosome revolution,” stated Aethlon Medical Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce. "We are advancing patented first-in-class therapeutic technology to eliminate the presence of tumor-secreted exosomes that trigger the death of immune cells necessary for combating cancer.  On the diagnostic front, our Exosome Sciences research team pioneered the field of exosome biology and is actively advancing a pipeline of next generation diagnostic tools".
In September of this year, Exosome Diagnostics announced that it entered into a collaboration agreement with Eli Lilly & Co. (NYSE:LLY). "Exosome Diagnostics technology may provide a unique opportunity to gain insight into the biology of complex conditions such as cancer and immune disorders”, stated Andrew Schade, Senior Medical Director, Diagnostic and Experimental Pathology at Eli Lilly. He further stated that "Exosome technology enables biofluid molecular sampling and the ability to monitor disease progression in real time. As Lilly explores new ways to pursue patient tailoring, we'll continue to work with partners to expand our capabilities."
Another company in the space, stem cell therapy development company ReNeuron (LON: RENE)
reported in early December, "We have highlighted a number of key developments in the period, notably the successful and earlier-than-planned development of a second-generation cryopreserved CTX drug product for our stroke and critical limb ischaemia programmes, our planned world-class cell manufacturing facility in South Wales, the granting of Orphan Drug Designation for our retinitis pigmentosa programme and the accelerated development of our CTX cell-based exosomes therapeutic platform”.
Life Technologies Corp (LIFE) has created a mini documentary series entitled 'Exosomes-The Next Small Thing’. "Exosomes are a very powerful way, a new way of how cells communicate long distance… They are powerful mediators that carry all the signaling and machinery necessary to change the behavior of the neighboring cells". http://www.lifetechnologies.com/ca/en/home/life-science/cell-analysis/exosomes/exosomes-documentary-episode-1.html

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCQB: AEMD) Note: Grand Opening of Exosome Sciences Subsidiary on November 12th at 6:30pm Eastern

SAN DIEGO - November 4, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), today released the following note authored by its Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce.

As a follow-up to my October 15th note, I am pleased to inform shareholders and other interested parties that we will host a grand opening event for our Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI) subsidiary on November 12th at 6:30pm eastern. Individuals that wish to attend the event should RSVP by email to Chris Wetzel (ESI Director of Operations) by the end of the business day on Friday November 8th. Chris's email address is: cwetzel@exosomesciences.com. The event will be held at our new ESI lab located within the Princeton Research Center. The address is 11 Deer Park Drive, Suite 103, Monmouth Junction, NJ 08852. Directions can be accessed online at: www.princetoncorporateplaza.com/contact.html.
We established Exosome Sciences as a stand-alone subsidiary to pursue exosome-based strategies to diagnose and monitor the progression of cancer, infectious disease and other life-threatening conditions. We believe exosomes are an optimal diagnostic target as diseased cells release them into bodily fluids such as urine and blood where they can be accessed. Our ESI subsidiary is developing non-invasive liquid biopsies based on the knowledge that these exosomes transport disease-origin markers underlying a wide-range of disease conditions. In regards to ESI's leadership, we have retained two of the best-known thought leaders in the exosome industry. Dr. Douglas Taylor as ESI's Chief Scientific Officer and Dr. Cicek Gercel-Taylor as ESI's Clinical Research Director. In closing, I look forward to introducing our ESI team on the 12th.
About Dr. Douglas Taylor
Dr. Taylor discovered and pioneered the field of exosome biology and their role in intercellular communication and immune regulation. He has been in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women's Health at the University of Louisville School of Medicine since 1992. Dr. Taylor published the initial article describing circulating tumor exosomes/microvesicles in 1979 (Anal. Biochem. 98:53-59, 1979). The research in his laboratory has primarily focused on the release and consequences of exosomes from gynecologic cancer and lung tumors. Over the past 30+ years, Dr Taylor has pioneered the isolation and characterization of circulating tumor-derived exosomes. His work has focused on characterization of circulating exosomes released by tumor cells for their role in immune regulation and induction of a pro-inflammatory tumor microenvironment. His work has demonstrated that the presence of specific circulating exosomal components have potential use as biomarkers for cancer patients.
About Dr. Gercel-Taylor
Dr. Cicek Gercel-Taylor has been a pioneer in the field of exosome biology and in defining their nucleic acid and protein cargoes. She previously has worked at the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women's Health at the University of Louisville School of Medicine since 1992, and also is the Resident Research Coordinator. Her main research interest is in gynecological cancers, where she investigates the consequences of exosomes on genetic and epigenetic alterations induced in normal host target cells. She has explored the role of endogenous and exogenous hormones in modulating exosomal cargoes and the resulting effects on pathologic processes. A significant part of these investigations includes the identification and characterization of clinically relevant biomarkers, specifically proteomic and miRNA content of pathology-derived exosomes.

Investorideas.com Newswire Excerpt:
Last week, the Wall Street Journal published an informative article on the emergence of cancer immunotherapies designed to augment the immune system's ability to recognize and combat malignant tumors. The oncology community is embracing this new treatment paradigm based on mounting clinical evidence that immunotherapies can produce long-term responses across multiple tumor types when combined with traditional therapies. As per the article, industry analysts project that immunotherapies could represent half of all cancer treatments within the next 10 years. The opportunity in lung cancer alone was referenced as a $6 billion opportunity.
At least five major drug companies are advancing candidates, including Bristol-Myers Squibb, whose drug Yervoy is already approved for melanoma. Drug mechanisms that inhibit the PD-1 molecular pathway, which cancer cells hijack to evade destruction by the body's immune system, are a primary target in the emerging immunotherapy pipeline. The article also balanced the compelling promise of these candidates with the reality that PD-1 inhibitors and other immunotherapies face significant administration and cost hurdles. Much of the concern is associated with the challenge of stacking an immunotherapeutic drug on top of the toxicity of established therapies such as radiation, chemotherapy, targeted cancer agents or other PD-1 inhibitors. Beyond this challenge, the cost of combining such therapies could prove to be prohibitive considering that Yervoy alone costs $120,000 for four doses administered over 12 weeks.
From an Aethlon Medical perspective, the Wall Street Journal article serves to reinforce our vision that a medical device can deliver immunotherapeutic benefit to both established and candidate cancer therapies, and do so economically and without added drug toxicity.

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCQB: AEMD) Note: Cancer Immunotherapy Article, Introduction to Dr. Douglas Taylor

SAN DIEGO - October 24, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), today released the following note authored by its Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce.

Last week, the Wall Street Journal published an informative article on the emergence of cancer immunotherapies designed to augment the immune system's ability to recognize and combat malignant tumors.  The oncology community is embracing this new treatment paradigm based on mounting clinical evidence that immunotherapies can produce long-term responses across multiple tumor types when combined with traditional therapies.  As per the article, industry analysts project that immunotherapies could represent half of all cancer treatments within the next 10 years. The opportunity in lung cancer alone was referenced as a $6 billion opportunity. 
At least five major drug companies are advancing candidates, including Bristol-Myers Squibb, whose drug Yervoy is already approved for melanoma.  Drug mechanisms that inhibit the PD-1 molecular pathway, which cancer cells hijack to evade destruction by the body's immune system, are a primary target in the emerging immunotherapy pipeline. The article also balanced the compelling promise of these candidates with the reality that PD-1 inhibitors and other immunotherapies face significant administration and cost hurdles. Much of the concern is associated with the challenge of stacking an immunotherapeutic drug on top of the toxicity of established therapies such as radiation, chemotherapy, targeted cancer agents or other PD-1 inhibitors.  Beyond this challenge, the cost of combining such therapies could prove to be prohibitive considering that Yervoy alone costs $120,000 for four doses administered over 12 weeks.
From an Aethlon Medical perspective, the Wall Street Journal article serves to reinforce our vision that a medical device can deliver immunotherapeutic benefit to both established and candidate cancer therapies, and do so economically and without added drug toxicity.
Our device strategy targets a survival mechanism deployed by tumors to evade and defeat the immune system of cancer patients.  This mechanism, which is not addressed by drug therapies, is the seretion of exosomes by cancerous tumors.  Researchers have discovered that tumors release these particles to trigger the death of cancer fighting immune cells and facilitate the spread of metastasis.  Additionally, the systemic elimination of exosomes may represent a novel strategy to inhibit the PD-1 molecular pathway.  To date, researchers have demonstrated that the Aethlon Hemopurifier® can capture exosomes underlying lymphoma, melanoma, ovarian, and breast cancer. If you are not familiar with the Hemopurifier®, it is a first-in-class medical device that targets the rapid elimination of life-threatening infectious viruses and tumor-secreted exosomes from circulation.  
Based on the recent approval (after 5+ years of effort) of an investigational device exemption (IDE) by FDA, we are preparing to initiate the first U.S. studies of Hemopurifier® therapy in Hepatitis-C (HCV) infected individuals. In studies previously conducted overseas, Hemopurifier® therapy was demonstrated to accelerate viral load depletion in hardest-to-treat HCV patients receiving standard-of-care drug therapy.
As a result of crossing the IDE approval threshold, we opened the door to advance relationships with medical institutes that have clinical interest in expanding Hemopurifier® indications to include various forms of cancer.
When we initiated our first cancer research activities, we were making two intuitive yet forward-looking bets.  The first was that exosomes would emerge to become a vital therapeutic target.  The second was a belief that novel immunotherapies would rethink the landscape for treating cancer.  Today, tumor-secreted exosomes are well-documented therapeutic targets and cancer immunotherapies are expected to take center stage in the cancer treatment arena. There is growing hope that the marriage of traditional cancer therapies with next-generation immunotherapies may someday allow cancer to become a manageable condition much like HIV-infection is managed through a cocktail of treatment mechanisms.  At Aethlon Medical, our role is to provide the oncology community with a therapeutic tool that counters the immunosuppressive impact of exosomes without adding drug toxicity to companion cancer therapies.  
In closing, I am providing the scientific viewpoint of Dr. Douglas Taylor on the potential implications of Hemopurifier® therapy in cancer care.  Dr. Taylor is credited with the discovery of tumor-secreted exosomes and is a leading published author on the topic.  He is also one of the newest members of the Aethlon family as he has accepted the position of Chief Scientific Officer at our Exosome Sciences diagnostic subsidiary. The following is a statement from Dr. Taylor:
Evidence indicates that molecules, such as programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) and CTLA-4, are exploited by tumors to suppress patient immune surveillance, allowing the progression of cancers. These molecules and their ligands negatively regulate anti-tumor immune responses, particularly CD8+ effector T cells. Treatment of activated T cells with anti-PD-L1 antibodies reduce T cell proliferation, which correlates with attenuated IL-2 secretion. In vitro cytotoxicity studies and in vivo growth inhibition can be restored utilizing anti-PD-L1 antibodies or by genetic silencing of PD-1.  The expression of PD-L1 on tumor cells inhibits anti-tumor immunity through engagement of PD-1 on effector T cells. Expression of PD-L1 on tumors is correlated with reduced survival in many tumor types.
Due to the role of these molecules in immune regulation and correlation with cancer outcomes, these pathways are being targeted for immunotherapy. Bristol Myers' experimental PD-1 inhibitor Nivolumab and Merck's candidate, MK-3475, block the PD-1/PD-L1 interaction, allowing the immune system to react with the tumor cells. Yervoy targets a similar checkpoint, inhibiting the CTLA-4 pathway. Unlike genetically targeted drugs, which disrupt mutations that fuel tumor growth, the new agents treat the immune system. Current interest in targeting these molecular pathways raises a concern that their normal function acts as to modulate the immune system to prevent attacks on healthy cells. Studies in murine models deficient for PD-1 developed dilated cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure and that expression of PD-1 may also prevent autoimmune diseases. Based on the critical role of PD-1 and CTLA-4, targeting their expression may be problematic resulting in serious side effects on the host. However, an essential component of the activity of such molecules may be due to their presence on exosomes released by tumor cells. We previously demonstrated the presence of these immunoregulatory molecules on tumor-derived exosomes and their ability to suppress T cell activation and proliferation ( Taylor et al. Clinical Cancer Research , 9: 5113-5119, 2003). Thus, a reasonable approach that does not result in systemic toxicity would be the removal of these immunoregulatory molecules. Consequently, the ability of the Hemopurifier® to remove these circulating exosomes may provide a superior approach to treat these patients without the generalized inhibition of the respective molecular pathways.

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCQB: AEMD) Note: Clinical Partnering Programs, Manufacturing Optimization and Ramp-Up, Exosome Sciences Grand Opening

SAN DIEGO - October 15, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), today released the following note authored by its Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce.

In recent months, we launched and staffed a diagnostic subsidiary, expanded our intellectual property portfolio, and continued to generate revenues from established and newly awarded government contracts. More importantly, we achieved the most significant milestone in the history of our organization, FDA approval of an investigational device exemption (IDE) that allows us to initiate the first human Hemopurifier® therapy studies in the United States. As a result, we have an opportunity to reward our stakeholders though the established Wall Street model of demonstrating U.S. clinical progression. For those not familiar with our Hemopurifier®, it is a first-in-class medical device that targets the rapid elimination of life-threatening infectious viruses and cancer glycopathogens from circulation.
As per the IDE approved protocol, we 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. Successful completion of the protocol, which we previously conducted with success in India, will set the stage for pivotal studies required for market clearance in the U.S. The approval of our IDE has also unlocked the ability to advance clinical partnering programs with medical institutes that are pursuing indications of our Hemopurifier® in cancer care.
Manufacturing Optimization and Ramp-up
In the coming weeks, we are scheduled to initiate Hemopurifier® manufacturing to support our FDA approved study as well as our continued treatment endeavors overseas. In this regard, I am pleased to share that our researchers along with collaborative assistance have discovered a processing technique that significantly optimizes the ability of the affinity agent immobilized within the Hemopurifier® to bind viruses and other glycopathogen targets. As you may recall, we previously reported that intermittent Hemopurifier® administration during the first three days of interferon-based therapy resulted in undetectable viral load in as little as seven days in hard-to-treat HCV genotype-1 patients. Based on a review of clinical literature, we believe such outcomes reflect a significant advancement in HCV care. By incorporating our new processing techniques into our manufacturing protocol, we expect the optimized capture capabilities of the Hemopurifier® will further augment the benefit of standard-of-care drug therapies. We anticipate Hemopurifier® manufacturing to be complete by year-end and then expect to begin treating patients in the first quarter of 2014.
Exosome Sciences Follow-up
Last month, we announced the launch of Exosome Sciences (ESI) as a subsidiary that is advancing exosome-based strategies to diagnose and monitor the progression of cancer, infectious disease and other life-threatening conditions. We also disclosed that we staffed ESI with two of the best-known thought leaders in the exosome industry.
Additionally, we referenced a plan to establish the ESI labs in a research facility located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. We reconsidered the Langhorne option and instead made the decision to execute a lease and are now building out ESI lab facilities at the Princeton Research Center (www.princetoncorporateplaza.com). This 260,000 square foot facility is ideally situated on the Princeton-Rutgers Route 1 Corridor ("Einstein Alley"), which provides easy access to both New York City and Philadelphia. We are planning a small grand opening event for Aethlon shareholders in early November and will let you know once a date has been set. Regardless, our goal is to transform ESI from a previously unvalued asset into a stand-alone organization that contributes measurable asset value on the balance sheet of Aethlon Medical.

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCQB: AEMD) Announces Renewal of DARPA Dialysis-Like Therapeutics Contract

SAN DIEGO - September 26, 2013 (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 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has exercised an option agreement to proceed with year-three of a five-year $6.8 million contract that was awarded to Aethlon on September 30, 2011 under DARPA's Dialysis-Like Therapeutics (DLT) program.

The third year of Aethlon's DLT contract contains eight milestones representing a potential of $1,534,099 in revenue opportunity. To date, Aethlon has invoiced $3,188,131 to DARPA for achieving fourteen of sixteen milestone objectives targeted in the first two years of the DLT program.
The goal of the DLT program is to develop a portable device that removes "dirty" blood from the body, separates harmful agents, and returns "clean" blood to the body in a manner similar to dialysis treatment of kidney failure. The resulting device would decrease the morbidity and mortality of sepsis, thereby saving thousands of lives and billions of dollars in the United States annually. In the DLT program, Aethlon has been contracted to utilize the Aethlon ADAPT™ system to create an extracorporeal blood purification cartridge that selectively eliminates sepsis-enabling particles from circulation to promote recovery and prevent sepsis. The Aethlon ADAPT™ converges advanced plasma membrane technology with high affinity drug agents to allow the selective yet rapid clearance of disease targets from the entire circulatory system without damaging blood cells or removing particles essential for health. Aethlon has also been contracted to develop a novel blood circulatory instrument that will deliver ADAPT™ based and other therapeutic filtration devices without systemic anticoagulants normally required in extracorporeal therapies.
Beyond the civilian need for anti-sepsis therapies, the device proposed in the DLT program would play an important role in saving the lives of wounded U.S. military personnel, as infection leading to sepsis is a significant cause of mortality. When sepsis is complicated by shock, approximately half of patients do not survive for 30 days, even if effective antibiotics are used. Unfortunately, the fatality rate from sepsis can be high, given that antibiotic-resistant bacteria are an increasing problem for injured warfighters and military treatment facilities. Bio-agents engineered for resistance against antibiotics also represent a significant threat to both warfighters and citizens. Current culture-based methods of identifying blood-borne pathogens can take 48 hours or longer to identify the offending pathogen, and some blood-borne pathogens do not propagate in culture. Pending these culture results, septic patients are treated with protocol-based broad-spectrum antibiotics. In the event the offending pathogen is resistant to the empirically chosen antibiotic, the fatality rate may increase as much as 9% per hour.
Aethlon is currently preparing to launch the first U.S. studies of Hemopurifier® therapy based on the recent approval of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under the IDE, Aethlon will enroll ten end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients infected with HCV as part of a feasibility study to demonstrate Hemopurifier safety. Successful completion of the feasibility study will set the stage for Aethlon to conduct pivotal studies required for market clearance to treat HCV and other disease conditions.

Medical Technology Q&A with Chairman and CEO of Aethlon Medical (OTCQB: AEMD) Discussing Launch of New Subsidiary, Exosome Sciences, Inc.

Point Roberts, WA, New York, NY - September 24, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investing ideas in leading sectors including biotech and medical technology stocks, issues an exclusive Q&A with Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO of Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCQB:AEMD). Mr. Joyce discusses the recent launch of its new Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI) and what that potentially represents to Aethlon and its shareholders.

Q: Investorideas.com
Jim on September 12 th you announced the formal launch of Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI), a wholly-owned subsidiary previously established by Aethlon. Can you tell investors the focus behind the subsidiary and why the timing was right to launch now?
A: Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO
The rationale for launching Exosome Sciences was driven by the belief we could transform an unvalued asset into a substantially valued asset that would benefit our shareholders. As the focus of Aethlon Medical is therapeutic devices, the market had little reason to assign any value to candidate diagnostic products as our resources are going to be dedicated toward clinical progression and future commercialization of the Aethlon Hemopurifier® and other pipeline therapies. Especially, now that FDA has approved an IDE that allows us to initiate the first human clinical studies of our Hemopurifier® in the United States.
Still, it became increasingly clear that we needed to leverage our proprietary techniques to isolate and quantify exosomes before the window for related diagnostic innovation began to close. It was also hard to ignore the lofty valuations being awarded to other similar-stage molecular diagnostic organizations. So, we launched Exosome Sciences as a stand-alone entity and hired the best-known researchers in the exosome field to unlock the value of our technology and build an expansive pipeline of urine and blood based diagnostic products.
Q: Investorideas.com
Can you explain to investors what Exosomes are and how they play a role in cancer diagnostics and treatment?
A: Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO
Sure, but I would first like to share that when we first initiated our exosome research programs, the vast majority of the medical community considered these particles to be nothing more than cellular debris with no biological function. In fact, at the time only a handful of labs were thinking about the role of exosomes. Today, it appears our early entry into the field may pay off as the medical community clearly recognizes that exosomes are vital therapeutic and diagnostic targets. In fact, there are now industry conferences and associations dedicated solely to exosome research.
As it relates to the exosome-related objectives of Aethlon Medical, we utilize our Hemopurifier® to target the elimination of circulating tumor-secreted exosomes as an adjunct therapy to improve cancer treatment outcomes. Our strategy addresses a significant unmet medical need as researchers have discovered that exosomes suppress the immune system of cancer patients and they facilitate tumor growth, seed the spread of metastasis, and contribute to drug resistance. Our hope is that exosome elimination saves lives by tipping the therapeutic balance in favor of the patient.
In regards to the diagnostic focus of our Exosome Sciences subsidiary, we are advancing exosome-based tools to better diagnose and monitor the progression of cancer and other life-threatening disease conditions. As it turns out, exosomes transport markers specific to the origin disease into bodily fluids, including the blood and urine where they can be easily assessed. Our objective is to introduce non-invasive liquid biopsies that can provide for the earliest detection or recurrence of cancer and other diseases. Our lead product is an assay that we named ELLSA. So far, ELLSA has been validated to identify the presence of exosomes underlying the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis (TB), and various forms of cancer, including ovarian, melanoma, and breast cancer.
Q: Investorideas.com
Exosome Diagnostics recently announced it entered into a collaboration agreement with Eli Lilly and Company (LLY) for biomarker discovery and validation using Exosome Diagnostics proprietary EXO50 nucleic acid extraction kit. Eli Lilly will gain early access to Exosome Diagnostics technology to help identify key gene mutations and expression levels in blood that may be correlated with drug response and disease recurrence.
Your core technology, the Aethlon Hemopurifer®, targets the rapid elimination of infectious disease and cancer glycopathogens, including exosomes from circulation. Can you tell us the synergies and benefits of having both a therapeutic technology and a diagnostic division working on such an important area of cancer research? And does having a diagnostic and therapeutic division so tightly focused give your company an edge?
A: Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO
Excellent question. There is tremendous synergy as the advancements of Exosome Sciences have the potential to become companion diagnostic tools that determine when Hemopurifier® therapy should be administered. As an example, an assay able to detect exosomes underlying breast cancer might define the point when it would be appropriate to initiate Hemopurifier® therapy. This same assay would then be useful in monitoring patient response to therapy and could be utilized to optimize the administration of the Hemopurifier® and other therapeutic regimens.
Q: Investorideas.com
You just reported the appointment of Dr. Douglas Taylor as Chief Scientific Officer of Exosome Sciences, Inc. What does his background bring to the table to help lead this new subsidiary?
A: Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO
Dr. Taylor is the individual who first discovered tumor-secreted exosomes and is a leading published author in the field. His knowledge, expertise, and stature within the scientific community will be instrumental in developing a product pipeline and establishing strategic industry relationships.
Q: Investorideas.com
In closing, your company has achieved some significant milestones recently for Aethlon Hemopurifer®. For investors new to the company, can you give us the recent highlights?
A: Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO
Since the beginning of the year, we have been extremely productive. Beyond the formal launch of Exosome Sciences, we formed a team that won a $22 million Department of Defense contract, we reported on positive Hepatitis C (HCV) treatment outcomes from studies conducted overseas, we expanded the potential indications of our Hemopurifier® in cancer, and disclosed the issuance of new patents that further protect our technologies.
However, the most significant milestone by far was FDA approval of an IDE that allows us to initiate clinical studies of HCV patients in the United States. While this took years of effort, the IDE approval unlocks the opportunity to demonstrate the value of our Hemopurifier® on the world’s most important clinical stage.
