The lead therapeutic candidate is the Aethlon Hemopurifier, a first-in-class device that targets the rapid elimination of infectious viruses and cancer promoting exosomes
from the circulatory system of treated individuals.
Kishore's team published the first paper ever looking at stem cell exosomes
and heart repair -- making the team a pioneer in the field of exosomes
and a trailblazer in the use of exosomes
in heart disease.
The company's lead product is the Aethlon Hemopurifier, a first-in- class device that selectively targets the rapid elimination of circulating viruses and tumor-secreted exosomes
that promote cancer progression.
Argosomes differ from exosomes
mainly in their function.
Moreover, the exosomes
are immuno-privileged and can pass through the blood-brain barrier.
These cancer exosomes
essentially act as mini tumour "satellites" that hijack and neutralise invading anti-tumour cells that are recruited to the prostate tumour to eradicate the cancer.
are injected into the blood and are able to carry the drugs past the blood-brain barrier.
15) showed that exosomes
contain mRNA and microRNA that can be transferred between cells, and Luo et al.
are released from various cell types, and are found under both normal and pathological conditions, including cancer.
are found in urine from people with and without cancer, but seem to be excreted in large quantities by some cancer cells.
The fact that we can harvest this important cancer signature from exosomes
circulating in blood is a critical demonstration of Exosome
's technology for advanced personalized medicine diagnostics", said James R.
A few investigators even suggest that HIV, the AIDS virus, exploits exosomes
to spread copies of itself among cells (SN: 12/6/03, p.
