The presentation covered the following topics:
- A status report on the first FDA approved study of Hemopurifier therapy in the United States, including Aethlon's clinical progression strategy to advance infectious disease and oncology treatment indications.
- A review of clinical safety data and efficacy observations resulting from Hemopurifier administration to HIV and Hepatitis c (HCV) infected individuals.
- The results of government and non-government collaborative testing programs against category "A" bioterror and pandemic threats, including pandemic influenza, dengue, ebola, pox viruses, and other viral pathogens that remain untreatable with drug or vaccine therapies.
- The discovery that the Aethlon Hemopurifier captures tumor-secreted exosomes underlying a broad-spectrum of cancer indications and the resulting patent protection already issued to protect Aethlon's cancer treatment endeavors.
- A review of a National Cancer Institute (NCI) sponsored publication that references Aethlon Medical as the first organization with a therapeutic candidate to address tumor-secreted exosomes.
- A review of recent landmark discoveries that tumor-secreted exosomes suppress the immune system of cancer patients, seed the creation and spread of metastasis, promote angiogenesis, and transport PD-1, PDL-1, VEGF, CTLA-4, EGRF and other primary cancer therapeutic targets of the biopharmaceutical industry.
- The central role of the Aethlon Hemopurifier in the rapidly emerging immuno-oncology industry, which analysts expect to grow to $35 billion per year in the near future.
- The recent launch of Aethlon's Exosome Sciences diagnostic subsidiary, which is the first organization to demonstrate the ability to isolate exosomes that transport diagnostic biomarkers underlying alzheimer's disease (AD), chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), and glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) that have crossed through blood brain barrier into the circulatory system. Thus, setting the stage for liquid biopsies that allow for the identification and monitoring of these disease conditions.
