  • Swiss researchers have suspended the testing of one of the leading Ebola vaccine candidates after some volunteers reported unexpected side effects. In a statement issued on Thursday, the Hopitaux Universitaires de Geneve said the trial had been suspended "as a precautionary measure." The study involving 59 people began in November. The vaccine was developed by the Canadian government and is licensed to two U.S. companies, NewLink and Merck The trial is scheduled to resume in January in Geneva.

    Also explains yesterdays drop most likely. AF must leak his articles prior to releasing them to the public. Shaking out the folks trying to make a quick buck while giving investors another great opportunity to pick up shares on the cheap. I said it before, the only pump Aethlon needs is the dialysis machine.

    Aethlon further disclosed that it established an elution protocol during the study that allowed researchers to quantify the number of viruses captured within the Hemopurifier® during a single treatment. As a result, researchers were able the measure that as many as 300 billion copies of HCV had been captured during a single six-hour treatment.

    Data from two patients was not included in the reported Hemopurifier-PR dataset. One of these patients was a genotype-5 patient who discontinued PR therapy at day 180, yet still achieved a SVR. The second patient was a genotype-3 patient who also achieved a SVR, yet was unable to tolerate PR therapy and discontinued therapy at day-90. Overall, ten of the twelve patients (n=10/12) who enrolled in the study achieved a SVR and seven of the twelve (n=7/12) patients achieved an RVR.

As a result, researchers were able the measure that as many as 300 billion copies of HCV had been captured during a single six-hour treatment.

    Aethlon is now preparing to launch the first U.S. clinical Hemopurifier® based on the United States Food and Drug Administration's (FDA)'s approval of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE). The study, which will be conducted at the DaVita MedCenter Dialysis in Houston, Texas, will contribute safety data to support the advancement of Hemopurifier® therapy as a broad-spectrum countermeasure against bioterror and pandemic threats and chronic viral pathogens such as HIV and HCV. Hemopurifier® therapy is available to treat Ebola patients in the U.S. through FDA expanded access "emergency use" provisions to address life threatening circumstances for which an alternative therapy is not available. At present, no antiviral therapy or vaccine has proven to be effective against Ebola virus infection in humans.

    In the study, HCV-infected individuals were enrolled to receive three six-hour Hemopurifier® treatments during the first three days of a 48-week peginterferon+ribavirin (PR) treatment regimen. The study was conducted under the leadership of Dr. Vijay Kher at the Medanta Medicity, a multi-specialty medical institute established to be a premier center for medical tourism in India. Aethlon reported that Hemopurifier® therapy was well tolerated and without device-related adverse events in twelve treated patients. Of these twelve patients, ten completed the Hemopurifier-PR treatment protocol, including eight genotype-1 patients and two genotype-3 patients. Eight of the ten patients (n=8/10) achieved a sustained virologic response (SVR), which is the clinical definition of treatment cure and is defined as undetectable HCV RNA 24-weeks after the completion of the 48-week PR drug regimen. Both genotype-3 patients achieved a SVR (n=2/2), while six of the eight genotype-1 patients achieved a SVR (n=6/8)

    Of the ten patients that completed the full treatment protocol, five (n=5/10) also achieved a rapid virologic response (RVR), defined as undetectable HCV RNA at day 30 of therapy. RVR represents the clinical endpoint that best predicts SVR cure rates resulting from PR therapy. As a point of reference, the landmark IDEAL Study of 3,070 HCV genotype-1 patients documented that 10.35% (n=318/3070) of PR treated patients achieved a RVR. Patients that achieved a RVR had SVR rates of 86.2% (n=274/318) versus SVR rates of 32.5% (n=897/2752) in non-RVR patients. Aethlon also disclosed that two of the genotype-1 patients who achieved a RVR also achieved an immediate virologic response (IVR), defined as undetectable HCV RNA seven days after initiation of Hemopurifier-PR treatment protocol. The incidence of IVR was not reported in the IDEAL study.

  • Aethlon Medical, Inc. (AEMD), the pioneer in developing targeted therapeutic devices to address infectious disease and cancer, today reported final clinical outcomes, including rapid virologic response (RVR) and sustained virologic response (SVR) rates, in Hepatitis-C virus (HCV) infected individuals who received Hemopurifier® therapy during a clinical study conducted at the Medanta Medicity Institute in India. Aethlon is now preparing to launch its first human clinical studies in the United States.
    The Aethlon Hemopurifier® is a first-in-class bio-filtration device that targets the rapid elimination of viruses and immunosuppressive proteins from the circulatory system of infected individuals. The device is a leading broad-spectrum treatment countermeasure against viral pathogens that are not treatable with drug or vaccine therapies. In HCV care, the device is positioned to address antiviral drug resistance and hard-to-treat patients who are unable to tolerate normally administered doses of antiviral drugs or peginterferon+ribavirin (PR) therapy. It is estimated that approximately 170 million people worldwide are infected with HCV, which leads to chronic liver disease or cirrhosis, and is a leading cause of liver transplantation.

    In addition to reporting RVR and SVR rates, Aethlon disclosed that it achieved the following clinical objectives of the HCV study:

    To demonstrate that Hemopurifier® therapy could be administered safely in non-dialysis patients who were infected with HCV.
    To demonstrate the ability to combine Hemopurifier® therapy with an established therapeutic drug regimen.
    To demonstrate that the brief inclusion of Hemopurifier® therapy can improve the normally expected benefit of a therapeutic drug regimen.
    To establish an elution protocol that allows researchers to quantify the number of viruses captured within the Hemopurifier® during a single treatment.

    Sierra : conservatively $1 to 5 soon...

    Scam site or not, I do like this line from their recommendation:
    Here is why Sierra’s publisher has initiated a long position in AEMD, the last 6 weeks have provided positive scientific data and successful human results that are nothing short of miraculous. There is little doubt that shares of Aethlon Medical (AEMD) will soon be trading conservatively in the $1 to $5 range!

    Not sure how many dialysis machines they have in Africa. They plug the hemopurifier into the machine to do its work.

  • Death toll from virus outbreak nears 7,000 as World Health Organisation warns figures may be significant underestimation.
    The number of people with Ebola in west Africa has risen above 16,000, with the death toll from the outbreak reaching almost 7,000, the World Health Organisation (WHO) says.

    The number of deaths is more than 1,000 higher than the figure issued by the WHO just two days ago, but it is thought to include deaths that have gone unreported in the weeks or months since the outbreak began. Most of the new deaths were recorded in Liberia.

    The WHO has warned that its figures could be a significant underestimation of the number of infections and deaths. Data from the outbreak has been patchy and the totals often rise considerably when backlogs of information are cleared. The latest confirmed data shows that almost half those known to have been infected with Ebola have died.

    Meanwhile, two children tested for Ebola after arriving in Britain from Africa are not infected, Public Health England confirmed on Saturday. It said the overall risk to the public of the virus continued to be “very low”.

    The children, whose ages and names have not been released, underwent precautionary tests in Newcastle for both the virus and malaria.

    The outbreak has been centred on Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. They account for the vast majority of the cases reported to date, with about three dozen cases elsewhere.

    Liberia has recorded the highest number of cases and deaths, but the rate of infection is slowing there. The disease is now spreading fastest in Sierra Leone.

    Mali has started recording infections after sick people crossed over from neighbouring Guinea. It has reported two new cases this week.

    This outbreak has been the worst partly because it occurred in a highly mobile region, where Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone meet, and quickly spread to their respective capital cities.
