About Aethlon Medical, Inc.
Aethlon Medical is focused on addressing unmet needs in global health and biodefense. The Aethlon HemopurifierŪ is a first-in-class therapeutic device designed to address life-threatening viral infections. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has designated the HemopurifierŪ to an Expedited Access Pathway (EAP) related to the treatment of life-threatening viruses that are not addressed with approved therapies.
In collaboration with leading government and non-government research institutes, Aethlon has validated the ability of the HemopurifierŪ to capture a broad-spectrum of pandemic influenza viruses, mosquito-borne viruses and deadly hemorrhagic viruses. Based on its use to treat Ebola virus, the HemopurifierŪ was named a "Top 25 Invention" and one of the "Eleven Most Remarkable Advances in Healthcare," by TIME Magazine.
Aethlon is also investigating the potential therapeutic use of the HemopurifierŪ to reduce the presence of tumor-derived exosomes, which contribute to immune-suppression and the spread of metastasis in cancer patients. Additionally, Aethlon is the majority owner of Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI), which is focused on the discovery of exosomal biomarkers to diagnose and monitor cancer and neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).
