Aethlon Medical Discloses MD Anderson Cancer Center Presentation

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD), disclosed this afternoon that its Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce, and Chief Science Officer, Dr. Richard Tullis, gave a presentation yesterday at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.  The presentation was entitled: The extracorporeal removal of tumor-secreted exosomes: An adjunct strategy to reverse immune suppression and inhibit metastases in melanoma.


The presentation focused on the potential of the Aethlon Hemopurifier® to be combined with chemo and immunotherapies as a strategy to improve melanoma treatment outcomes.  The Hemopurifier®, which is a first-in-class device being advanced in Hepatitis C (HCV) care, has also demonstrated the ability to capture cancer-promoting exosomes secreted by tumors.  Tumor-secreted exosomes have emerged to become a potentially vital therapeutic target in cancer as researchers have reported these microvesicular particles promote tumor progression by inducing programmed cell death of anti-cancer immune cells.  As a result of inhibiting the immune response, exosomes increase the proliferation and spread of many forms of cancer. Researchers have also reported that exosomes seed the spread of metastasis, promote angiogenesis (essential for tumor survival and growth), increase tumor aggressiveness, and contribute to anti-cancer drug resistance.

"We are truly appreciative for the invitation that allowed us to share our vision for improving metastatic melanoma care with physicians and researchers at MD Anderson," stated Mr. Joyce.
