Aethlon validates assay to identify the presence of exosomes in HIV and TB

Aethlon Medical : 14 April, 2011  (New Product)
Aethlon Medical's wholly owned subsidiary Exosome Sciences (ESI) validates the ability of its Enzyme Linked Lectin Specific Assay (ELLSA) to identify the presence of exosomes underlying the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis (TB), and various forms of cancer, including ovarian, melanoma, breast, lymphoma, and colorectal.
In July 2010, ESI disclosed that it filed a patent relating to the development of an Assay that would allow researchers to detect exosomes in blood and other fluids. In addition to research opportunities, Aethlon Medical plans to test ELLSA as a diagnostic to quantify the therapeutic capabilities of the Aethlon Hemopurifier to remove immunosuppressive exosomes from the circulatory system of those afflicted with cancer. ESI is now preparing a market survey that will be provided to researchers to determine market demand and pricing for ELLSA as a research tool.

'We are grateful to those organizations that collaborated in beta-testing the capabilities of ELLSA to detect exosomes, which are increasingly being recognized as particles that deplete immune cells or provide a mechanism to transport disease-enhancing factors below the surveillance of the immune system,' said Aethlon Chief Executive Officer, Jim Joyce. 'Additionally, the ESI ELLSA provides the potential for a near-term revenue stream that complements the therapeutic programs we are actively advancing at Aethlon Medical'
