Date:9/22/2009

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AEMD) today announced that it has initiated a relationship with Kentucky Bioprocessing LLC to establish processes to support large-scale production of the active affinity agents immobilized within the Aethlon Hemopurifier(R). Such affinity agents allow the Hemopurifer(R) to selectively capture a broad-spectrum of viruses from blood and other fluids. The Hemopurifier(R) is the first-in-class medical device to selectively adsorb viruses and immunosuppressive particles from the bloodstream.

"The relationship with Kentucky Bioprocessing represents an important step towards establishing the long-term commercial feasibility of our Hemopurifier(R), stated Aethlon Medical CEO, Jim Joyce. "Beyond a significant cost reduction of our affinity agents, the relationship offers large yield production potential in time frames that could improve our response capability against viral outbreaks, including unforeseen bioterror and pandemic threats," concluded Joyce.

As part of the relationship, Kentucky Bioprocessing will establish and confirm the sequence of Aethlon's affinity agents and then conduct optimization studies to insure agent purity. The affinity agents will then be transported as cloned proteins to be expressed in and extracted from tobacco plants as a strategy to maximize production yields.
