(OTCBB: AEMD), the pioneer in developing therapeutic filtration devices to address infectious disease and cancer, announces that Chairman and CEO James A. Joyce will provide a company overview, discuss recent developments and review upcoming milestones at the 5th LHA Life Sciences & Medical Technologies Virtual Conference.

Aethlon further disclosed that Company President Rodney S. Kenley will discuss the role of the Aethlon Hemopurifier® in the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in a presentation tomorrow at the 20th International Vicenza Course of Hemodialysis and CKD in Vicenza, Italy. The Aethlon Hemopurifier® is first-in-class therapeutic filtration device that selectively removes infectious viruses and immunosuppressive toxins from the entire circulatory system through the use of dialysis machines and other blood circulatory pumps already located in hospitals and clinics worldwide. Mr. Kenley's presentation, "The Treatment of HCV with Affinity Plasmapheresis on Dialysis Machines," will focus on treating HCV in existing dialysis clinics with no change in infrastructure or capital investments. The Hemopurifier® can be used to treat HCV in dialysis patients, in whom the prevalence of HCV is over 100 times higher than the general population, as well as non-dialysis patients. Access to Mr. Kenley's slide presentation will be provided on the Aethlon Medical website after the conclusion of the event.
About Aethlon Medical
The Aethlon Medical mission is to create innovative devices that address unmet medical needs in cancer, infectious disease, and other life-threatening conditions. The Aethlon ADAPT™ system is an expansive technology platform that converges affinity drug agents and plasma membrane technology to create therapeutic filtration devices that selectively target the removal of harmful particles from the entire circulatory system. Our lead therapeutic candidate is the Aethlon Hemopurifier®, a device with broad-spectrum capabilities against viral pathogens and immunosuppressive cancer exosomes. In human studies, Hemopurifier® therapy has provided significant viral load reductions in HIV and hepatitis C virus infected individuals without the administration of antiviral drugs. We are now focused on advancing our Hemopurifier® as an adjunct strategy to improve the benefit of established infectious disease and cancer treatment regimens. Based on studies conducted by government and non-government research organizations, the Hemopurifier® is also a leading broad-spectrum treatment candidate to address bioterror and pandemic threats.
