Defense Stock News Alert; Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD) $6.8 Million DARPA Award

Point Roberts, WA - November 3, 2011 - Investorideas.com, an investor research portal covering multiple stock sectors including defense and security stocks, reports on Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD) $6.8 Million Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) contract to develop a therapeutic device to reduce the incidence of sepsis, a fatal bloodstream infection that is often the cause of death in combat-injured soldiers.
Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD), the pioneer in developing therapeutic filtration devices to address infectious disease and cancer, announced in October that it has been awarded a $6.8 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop a therapeutic device to reduce the incidence of sepsis, a fatal bloodstream infection that is often the cause of death in combat-injured soldiers. The contract program will utilize the Aethlon ADAPT™ system as a core technology component underlying an extracorporeal blood purification device that selectively clears multiple sepsis-enabling particles from circulation to promote recovery and prevent sepsis. The resulting device, which is being advanced under DARPA's Dialysis Like Therapeutics (DLT) program, is expected to dramatically decrease the morbidity and mortality of sepsis, thereby saving thousands of lives and billions of dollars in the United States each year. Under the DLT program, Aethlon will also introduce a novel blood pump strategy to reduce or eliminate the systemic administration of anticoagulants normally required during extracorporeal device therapies. Worldwide, more than 18 million cases of sepsis are reported every year, with more than six million resulting in death.
The stock ran to $0.12 following the news in October and is currently trading at $0.08- $0.09.
Company Snapshot:
Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD)
The Aethlon Medical mission is to create innovative medical devices that address unmet medical needs in cancer, infectious disease, and other life-threatening conditions. Our Aethlon ADAPT™ System is a revenue-stage technology platform that provides the basis for a new class of therapeutics that target the selective removal of disease enabling particles from the entire circulatory system. The Aethlon ADAPT™ product pipeline includes the Aethlon Hemopurifier® to address infectious disease and cancer; HER2osome™ to target HER2+ breast cancer, and a medical device being developed under a contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) that would reduce the incidence of sepsis in combat-injured soldiers and civilians.
