Point Roberts, WA - November 3, 2011 - Investorideas.com, an investor research portal covering multiple stock sectors including defense and security stocks, reports on Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD) $6.8 Million Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) contract to develop a therapeutic device to reduce the incidence of sepsis, a fatal bloodstream infection that is often the cause of death in combat-injured soldiers.
Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD), the pioneer in developing therapeutic filtration devices to address infectious disease and cancer, announced in October that it has been awarded a $6.8 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop a therapeutic device to reduce the incidence of sepsis, a fatal bloodstream infection that is often the cause of death in combat-injured soldiers. The contract program will utilize the Aethlon ADAPT™ system as a core technology component underlying an extracorporeal blood purification device that selectively clears multiple sepsis-enabling particles from circulation to promote recovery and prevent sepsis. The resulting device, which is being advanced under DARPA's Dialysis Like Therapeutics (DLT) program, is expected to dramatically decrease the morbidity and mortality of sepsis, thereby saving thousands of lives and billions of dollars in the United States each year. Under the DLT program, Aethlon will also introduce a novel blood pump strategy to reduce or eliminate the systemic administration of anticoagulants normally required during extracorporeal device therapies. Worldwide, more than 18 million cases of sepsis are reported every year, with more than six million resulting in death.
The stock ran to $0.12 following the news in October and is currently trading at $0.08- $0.09.
