Aethlon Medical Inc. (NASDAQ: AEMD) presented at The South Florida Stock & Bond Club on Wednesday, June 28, 2017.
Aethlon Medical creates immunotherapeutic medical technologies to address unmet needs in global health and biodefense to combat infectious disease and cancer. The Aethlon Hemopurifier® is a clinical-stage therapeutic device that eliminates life-threatening viruses from the circulatory system of infected individuals. The device has been validated to capture Ebola, Zika, Lassa, MERS-CoV, HIV, Hepatitis C, Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr, Herpes Simplex, Chikungunya, Dengue, West Nile, Smallpox related viruses, H1N1 Swine Flu, H5N1 Bird Flu, and the reconstructed Spanish flu virus of 1918. The technology provides a first-line candidate defense against viruses that are not addressed with proven drug therapies, including natural occurring pandemic threats and agents of bioterrorism. The Hemopurifier® can also be deployed as a strategy to improve the benefit of approved antiviral drug regimens. At present, the Hemopurifier® is being advanced in the United States under an FDA approved clinical study. Aethlon Medical is also investigating the potential use of the Hemopurifier® to reduce the presence of tumor-derived exosomes, which contribute to immune-suppression and the spread of metastasis in cancer patients.
Aethlon Medical is also 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). ESI's TauSome™ biomarker is being clinically evaluated as the basis for a blood-based test to identify CTE in living individuals. Note: Of the hundreds of viruses that are infectious to humans, only 9 are addressed with an approved antiviral drug agent. Compounding this therapeutic challenge are the three to four new viruses that are discovered to be infectious to humans each year. To date, Hemopurifier therapy has been administered to individuals infected with Ebola virus, Hepatitis C virus (HCV) and the Human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In the case of Ebola, a remarkable response to a single administration of Hemopurifier therapy (comatose physician with multiple organ failure at the time), led to Time Magazine naming the Hemopurifier to be one of the "Top 25 Inventions" as well as one of the "Eleven Most Remarkable Advances in Healthcare."
Concluded an FDA-approved feasibility study to advance the Hemopurifier® as a broad-spectrum countermeasure against bioterror and pandemic threat viruses. The Company disclosed plans to submit an Expedited Access Pathway (EAP) program application to the FDA. The Company announced that its Exosome Sciences diagnostic subsidiary will conduct a follow-on study related to Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) in former NFL players.

Joyce founded Aethlon Medical in May 1998, and presently serves as Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. During Mr. Joyce's tenure, Aethlon has evolved the concept of a medical device to treat infectious disease into a reality of treating infected patients in a clinical trial environment. The resulting Hemopurifier® technology is positioned to treat global pandemic issues such as HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis-C, and pathogens most likely to be weaponized for use in bioterrorism. Mr. Joyce has been an active participant in the emerging biodefense industry. He has testified before Congress on issues related to Project BioShield legislation and the deployment of the Hemopurifier as a countermeasure against biological weapons. His efforts have been instrumental in expanding the definition of treatment countermeasure in Project BioShield legislation to include medical devices. Mr. Joyce recently served on the Project BioShield panel at the Federal Biodefense Research Conference, and was named Co-Chairman of the Bioterrorism/Chemical and Nuclear Security Task Force of the Homeland Security Industries Association. Mr. Joyce actively discusses issues related to infectious disease at various conferences, and has been featured in news stories on CNN, NBC, ABC, and other media outlets.
