It appears that hemopurifier is becoming a generic term and apparently Aethlon is fine with that. I suppose the differentiator will be that it is the Aethlon Hemopurifier as opposed to Cytosorb's Hemopurifier. Aethlon probably doesn't have the time or financial resources to defend its trademarks.
Maybe they don't even own a trademark for 'Hemopurifier', I've just always assumed they did.
Then there's the website that goes by hemopurifier which has gone unchallenged for years. It always surprised me that Aethlon never confronted the hijacking of their great product name.
I could see the whole technology being stolen outright, patents or no patents.
In any event, it sure would be nice to see someone's hemopurifier as a treatment option.
fwhco I also got a thumbs down from some fool that can't handle the truth. Look the word HEMO is that trade marked wait the word purifier is that trade marked Aethlon should protect defend it. Wait CTSO has DEFEND trademarked
Although Cytosorb does not refer to their product as Hemopurifier, others (media, etc.) use "hemopurifier" as a common noun to describe the Hemoperfusion, which can be even more harmful (just ask the trademark holders of Aspirin, Heroin, Linoleum, Thermos, and Touch Tone).
