Have been on the phone for over an hour with the FDA approval body for blood filtering devices, 800-638-2041. I was told that they have the final say for approval. Having said that, Marisa, the lovely lady I spoke with then did a search, found Aethlon Medical Devices and said the search states, "Closed"; but that is not the status of the device approval as they are not allowed to give that to the general public. I then reminded her that my only question was, "Does the 30 day reply time apply to resubmission of data requested by the FDA?" She searched and could not come up with an answer and then asked for my phone number, told me she would research the question and get back to me with an answer. Then she said, "We are short handed right now and very busy so it might be Monday before I can get back to you." Sorry I do not have more to report; but I will post her response as soon as I get it. I hope it is not needed by then as we have received a notice of approval from JJ (HA!). What ever happened to, "Keep the lines of communication open?"
