Extracorporeal Elimination of Circulating Exosomes as a Therapeutic Adjunct to Address Infectious Disease and Cancer

The Aethlon Hemopurifier® is a first-in-class device that targets the rapid elimination of infectious disease and cancer glycopathogens from circulation. In cancer, the Hemopurifier has been demonstrated to capture exosomes underlying lymphoma, melanoma, ovarian, and breast cancer. These microvesicular particles trigger apoptosis of immune cells and have been reported to facilitate tumor growth, metastasis, and the development of drug resistance. In design, the Hemopurifier consists of the affinity lectin Galanthus nivalis agglutinin (GNA) immobilized in the outer-capillary space of plasma membrane technologies. The resulting mechanism provides selective target elimination as GNA binds high mannose signatures abundant on the surface of exosomes and viral glycoproteins. Studies of hepatitis c (HCV) infected patients receiving a three-treatment Hemopurifier protocol combined with interferon-based standard of care resulted in undetectable HCV in as little as seven days in hard-to-treat genotype-1 patients. The studies also documented the ability of the Hemopurifier to capture as many as 300 billion HCV copies during a single six- hour treatment. The FDA recently approved an IDE that allows for the initiation of US feasibility studies.

Genetic Basis of Fatal Flu Side Effect Discovered
A group of people with fatal H1N1 flu died after their viral infections triggered a deadly hyperinflammatory disorder in susceptible individuals with gene mutations linked to the overactive immune response, according to a recent study.
New Class of RNA Tumor Suppressors Identified
Two short, “housekeeping” RNA molecules block cancer growth by binding to an important cancer-associated protein called KRAS. More than a quarter of all human cancers are missing these RNAs.
Mathematical Model Forecasts the Path of Breast Cancer
Chances of survival depend on which organs breast cancer tumors colonize first.
Ancient Viral Molecules Essential for Human Development
Genetic material from ancient viral infections is critical to human development, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
Measuring microRNAs in Blood to Speed Cancer Detection
A simple, ultrasensitive microRNA sensor holds promise for the design of new diagnostic strategies and, potentially, for the prognosis and treatment of pancreatic and other cancers.
Personalized Drug Screening for Multiple Myeloma Patients
A personalized method for testing the effectiveness of drugs that treat multiple myeloma may predict quickly and more accurately the best treatments for individual patients with the bone marrow cancer.
Metabolic Profiles Distinguish Early Stage Ovarian Cancer with Unprecedented Accuracy
Studying blood serum compounds of different molecular weights has led scientists to a set of biomarkers that may enable development of a highly accurate screening test for early-stage ovarian cancer.
New Way to Force Stem Cells to Become Bone Cells
Potential therapies based on this discovery could help people heal bone injuries or set hardware, such as replacement knees and hips.
