Cancer Treatment Application of the Aethlon Hemopurifier(R) Published in Journal of Translational Medicine

SAN DIEGO–(EMWNews)–Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD) disclosed today that a peer reviewed

scientific paper coauthored by Aethlon researchers has been published in

the Journal of Translational Medicine. The paper entitled, Exosomes

as a Tumor Immune Escape Mechanism: Possible Therapeutic Implications

discusses the mechanism by which exosomes released by cancerous tumors

are able to kill off immune cells in cancer patients. The paper further

discusses the novel therapeutic approach of the Aethlon Hemopurifier®

to capture and inhibit the spread of such immunosuppressive exosomes in

cancer patients. The abstract and complete article are available to be

accessed online at:

As we continue to progress the infectious

disease applications of our Hemopurifier®, the

Journal of Translational Medicine publication recognizes and reinforces

the additional potential of the Hemopurifier®

within the $43 billion cancer therapy market,

stated Aethlon Chairman and CEO, James A. Joyce. We

thank the numerous researchers who participated in coauthoring the paper

with our research team, concluded Joyce.

Aethlon previously disclosed that researchers discovered that the

Hemopurifier® is effective in capturing

exosomes that are released by solid tumors, lymphomas, and leukemia.

Exosomes induce T-cell apoptosis (programmed cell death), and block

T-cell signaling, proliferation, and cytokine production. High

concentrations of circulating exosomes correlate with reduced T-cell

production and tumor progression in cancer patients. In studies led by

Dr. Douglas Taylor at the University of Louisville, 60% of circulating

exosomes were removed from the blood of ovarian cancer patients during

first pass (approximately 10-minutes) through a small scale Hemopurifier®.

The capture data was consistent over the course of five different in

vitro blood studies. The ability to reduce circulating exosomes would

likely reverse immune suppression and increase patient responsiveness to

both immunotherapy and chemotherapy. Dr. Taylor is a recognized

authority on the causative effects of immune suppression in cancer

patients. He is credited with the initial characterization of exosomes

and is the leading peer reviewed author on the subject.

About Aethlon Medical

Aethlon Medical is the developer of the Hemopurifier®,

a first-in-class medical device designed to treat infectious disease.

The Hemopurifier® provides real-time

therapeutic filtration of infectious viruses and immunosuppressive

particles, and is positioned to address the treatment of drug and

vaccine resistant viruses. Additionally, the device holds promise in

cancer care, as research studies have verified the Hemopurifier®

is able to capture immunosuppressive particles secreted by tumors. The

Hemopurifier® is designed to act both as a

stand-alone therapeutic, and as an adjunct treatment to enhance clinical

benefit of established therapies. Pre-clinical studies conducted by

researchers representing leading government and non-government health

organizations both in the United States and abroad have documented the

effectiveness of the Hemopurifier® in

capturing from circulation the viruses that constitute pandemic threats,

including H5N1 Avian Influenza (bird flu), and Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever

(DHF) from circulation. The company is conducting studies to support the

use of the Hemopurifier® as a broad-spectrum

treatment countermeasure against bioterror threats, including Smallpox,

and Ebola, Marburg, and Lassa hemorrhagic fever. Regulatory and

commercialization initiatives in the United States are presently focused

on bioterror threats, while international initiatives are directed

toward naturally evolving pandemic threats, and chronic infectious

disease conditions including the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and

Hepatitis-C (HCV). Aethlon demonstrated the safety of the Hemopurifier®

in a 24-treatment human study at the Apollo Hospital in Delhi, India,

and is currently conducting further human studies at the Fortis

Hospital, also located in Delhi. The company has submitted an

investigational device exemption (IDE) to the U.S. Food and Drug

Administration (FDA) to advance the Hemopurifier®

as a broad-spectrum treatment countermeasure against category A

bioterror threats. Additional information regarding Aethlon Medical and
