SAN DIEGO – October 18, 2011 (Investorideas.com newswire) - Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD), the pioneer in developing therapeutic filtration devices to address infectious disease and cancer, announced today that it will begin accepting orders for its Enzyme Linked Lectin Specific Assay (ELLSA™) from researchers that require a highly sensitive diagnostic tool to detect the presence of exosomes in cell culture, ascites, and other biological fluids, including blood.
"We are going to produce ELLSA™ on a limited basis to satisfy the organic demand for our technology, which is primarily being driven by researchers who participated in a beta-testing program," stated Aethlon CEO, Jim Joyce. "However, as our focus is directed toward advancing Aethlon ADAPT™ system therapies, we plan to license or sell ELLSA™ to an organization that is already established in the research diagnostics field." Each ELLSA™ plate allows for up to 96 exosome detection tests. Further analysis of the captured exosomes is possible through detection molecules such as antibodies linked to a specific biomarker on the exosome. ELLSA™ has demonstrated the ability to identify and quantify the presence of exosomes produced by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and tuberculosis (TB), as well as all forms of cancer tested to date. The introductory price for each ELLSA order placed by November 30, 2011 is $179.00 per kit. To place an order, contact Paul Duffin at 858-459-7800 x306, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Aethlon Medical is offering ELLSA™ for research purposes only and not for human use.
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.
