Aethlon Medical Announces U.S. Army Agreement

SAN DIEGO, July 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AEMD) today disclosed it has entered into an agreement that extends studies of the Aethlon Hemopurifier(R) with the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) under a cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA). The Hemopurifier(R) is the first-in-class medical device to selectively adsorb viruses and immunosuppressive toxins from the bloodstream. The device has been designed to enhance the benefit of antiviral drug regimens, and it provides a therapeutic option against infectious viruses not addressed by drug and vaccine therapies.


The objectives of the USAMRIID agreement include determining the therapeutic efficacy of the Hemopurifier(R) in non-human primate studies against hemorrhagic fever viruses, including the highly virulent Zaire strain of Ebola (ZEBOV). Hemorrhagic viruses are potential bioterror and pandemic threats, whose lethality prohibits the ability to conduct human studies.

Aethlon also disclosed that studies previously conducted by USAMRIID have documented the Hemopurifier(R) captures approximately 50% of both wild type and mutant strains of ZEBOV from fluids during one hour in vitro studies. ZEBOV has the highest virus case-fatality rate, up to 90% in some epidemics, with an average case fatality rate of approximately 83% over 27 years. There have been more outbreaks ZEBOV that any other strain of Ebola virus.

"It is an honor and privilege to have USAMRIID researchers test the capability of our Hemopurifier(R) against Ebola and other highly lethal pathogens," stated Aethlon Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce. USAMRIID, located at Fort Detrick, Maryland, is the lead laboratory for the Medical Biological Defense Research Program, and plays a key role in national defense and in infectious disease research. The Institute plays a key role as the only laboratory in the Department of Defense (DOD) equipped to study Ebola and other highly hazardous infectious agents requiring maximum containment at bio-safety level four (BSL-4). The information contained in this press release does not necessarily reflect the position or the policy of the government and no official endorsement should be inferred.
