About Aethlon Medical
Aethlon Medical, Inc. creates diagnostic and therapeutic device solutions for infectious disease and cancer. Our lead product, the Hemopurifier® is the first-in-class medical device to selectively capture circulating viruses and immunosuppressive proteins prior to cell and organ infection. Human studies have documented the ability of our Hemopurifier® to reduce viral load in patients infected with Hepatitis-C virus (HCV) and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Our primary clinical and commercialization focus is to establish the Hemopurifier® as an adjunct therapy to enhance and prolong the benefit of traditional infectious disease drug regimens.
The Hemopurifier® is also a broad-spectrum treatment candidate against drug resistant bioterror and pandemic threats. Third party research institutes have verified the capability of the device to capture 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.
Our wholly owned subsidiary, Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI) was formed in October of 2009 to leverage attributes of the Hemopurifier® in the emerging exosome research field. ESI seeks to inhibit the immune cell destruction caused by exosomes secreted by solid tumors, lymphomas, and leukemia. At present, the capture of immunosuppressive exosomes secreted from ovarian cancer tumors has been demonstrated invitro. The preservation of anti-cancer immune cells would likely improve patient responsiveness to established treatmen
