Date:10/20/2009

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AEMD) announced today that research studies have documented the Aethlon Hemopurifier® is effective in capturing the current pandemic strain of the H1N1 Swine Flu Virus. The Hemopurifier® is the first-in-class medical device able to selectively remove infectious viruses and immunosuppressive proteins from the bloodstream. During invitro studies, the Hemopurifier® removed 68% of H1N1 virus from blood plasma in 30 minutes, 80% of the virus in two hours, and a 96% reduction of H1N1 was observed at six hours. The studies were performed by third party researchers approved by the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to house and conduct research on the current pandemic strains of H1N1 virus.

"The confirmation of the same Hemopurifier® we are advancing in Hepatitis-C (HCV) care, having significant activity against H1N1 virus is quite timely when considering the evolving rate of the pandemic," stated Aethlon Chairman & CEO, Jim Joyce. At present, the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus is the predominant influenza virus in circulation in most countries worldwide. Additional information on the virus, including situational updates can be accessed online at http://www.cdc.gov/H1N1flu.

Previous studies of the Hemopurifier® also demonstrated the ability of the device to capture both the reconstructed Spanish flu of 1918 virus (1918rv) and the H5N1 avian influenza virus (Bird Flu). As an adjunct therapy, the Hemopurifier® offers to improve the benefit of antiviral drugs against highly virulent strains of influenza and provides a therapeutic option against emerging strains of influenza that are resistant to drug and vaccine therapies.
