Aethlon Medical develops therapeutic devices to address unmet medical needs in cancer, infectious disease, and other life-threatening conditions.  The Company is preparing to launch the first U.S. studies of the Aethlon Hemopurifier® as a therapy to address hepatitis c virus (HCV) based on the recent approval of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  The Hemopurifier® is a first-in-class device that targets the rapid elimination of viruses and cancer glycopathogens, including disease-promoting exosomes from circulation.

Exosome Sciences was recently launched by Aethlon to be a stand-alone organization that pursues exosome-based strategies to diagnose and monitor the progression of cancer, infectious disease and other life-threatening conditions. ESI's lead product, an Enzyme Linked Lectin Specific Assay (ELLSA) has been validated to identify the presence of exosomes underlying the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis (TB), and various forms of cancer, including ovarian, melanoma, breast, lymphoma, and colorectal.

Dr. Gercel-Taylor stated, "I am very excited to join Exosome Sciences as the Clinical Research Director.  This is a very timely opportunity to develop clinically relevant exosome-based assays to enhance patient care with regard to risk assessment, diagnosis and treatment. The conditions are not limited to but include cancer, cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases, in addition to pregnancy complications and viral infections. Exosomes have ideal properties as biomarkers with their stability, ease of isolation and reflecting disease states. The ELLSA will enable the efficient development of disease specific and efficient platforms that can be standardized for clinical utilization. I have been involved in the development and characterization of exosomes since the early days three decades ago. I believe that we are ideally positioned to achieve this goal with our team at Exosome Sciences in collaboration with Aethlon Medical."

About Dr. Gercel-Taylor

Dr. Cicek Gercel-Taylor has been a pioneer in the field of exosome biology and in defining their nucleic acid and protein cargoes. She previously worked at the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women's Health at the University of Louisville School of Medicine since 1992, and also is the Resident Research Coordinator. Her main research interest is in gynecological cancers, where she investigates the consequences of exosomes on genetic and epigenetic alterations induced in normal host target cells. She has explored the role of endogenous and exogenous hormones in modulating exosomal cargoes and the resulting effects on pathologic processes. A significant part of these investigations includes the identification and characterization of clinically relevant biomarkers, specifically proteomic and miRNA content of pathology-derived exosomes. Dr. Gercel-Taylor is the wife of Dr. Douglas Taylor, who was recently appointed Chief Scientific Officer of Exosome Sciences.
