Aethlon Medical Releases Shareholder Letter to Discuss the Treatment of Hepatitis-C Virus (HCV)
Date:6/10/2009

ral drug from Vertex Pharmaceuticals is considered the leading adjunct candidate based on outcomes of a recent phase II study, which documented that 51% of patients that previously failed SOC had a sustained virologic response (SVR) when retreated with SOC and Teleprevir in combination. When considering that only 14% of patients in the study control arm responded to SOC alone, there is certainly valid justification for Telaprevir to be considered the lead adjunct drug candidate by the medical and the financial community. This is reinforced by the reality that Telaprevir represents a significant value component of Vertex (VRTX), which as I write this letter is valued at more $5 billion in the public markets. In regards to deal values in the HCV space, VRTX paid almost $400 million in March to acquire ViroChem, a drug developer with two experimental stage HCV drugs. TheStreet.com, who provides excellent HCV market coverage, reports the following on the Telaprevir clinical outcome; "The data keeps Telarevir ahead of its hepatitis C rivals because no other drug has yet shown the ability to improve the cure rates for both patients new to therapy as well as those who have failed prior therapy." The key phrase in that statement is "no other drug".

I suspect most individuals following the HCV treatment industry are not yet aware of a medical device study that demonstrated the mechanical removal of HCV through blood filtration outperforms Telaprevir as an adjunct to SOC therapy. The insight provided by this clinical validation should significantly benefit our endeavors. In a 63 patient study conducted in Japan, Asahi Kasei Kuraray Medical (Asahi) demonstrated that double filtration plasmapheresis (DFPP) when administered at the outset of SOC therapy provided a 77.8% SVR in HCV-infected patients. In patients who previously failed SOC, DFPP treatment provided an average SVR of 71.4% versus the 51% previously referenced in Telaprevir clinical studi
