Daily Finance’s recent article, “Inside Wall Street: Looking to the Bio-Defense Sector as Nuclear Fears Mount”, notes - The sector attracted a lot of interest after 9/11 and a number of companies emerged to develop protective biodefense drugs and products. But with the waning of dark headlines about terrorist threats, investors have tended to put them on their low-priority list.
That may be about to change

Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD)
At Aethlon Medical, we create revolutionary devices to address infectious disease and cancer. Our devices are designed to be novel platform solutions that fill therapeutic voids or aid in disease diagnosis and monitoring.
 
Our Hemopurifier® is the first medical device to selectively target the removal of infectious viruses and immunosuppressive proteins from the entire circulatory system. We recently discovered that our Hemopurifier® captures tumor-secreted exosomes that suppress the immune system of those afflicted with cancer. Prior to this discovery, a therapeutic strategy to directly inhibit or reverse the immunosuppressive destruction caused by exosomes did not exist in cancer care. By eliminating this mechanism, we believe our Hemopurifier® can fill an unmet clinical need and provide the benefit of an immune-based therapy without adding drug toxicity or interaction risks to established and emerging treatment strategies.
