    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    The Aethlon Hemopurifier®The Aethlon Hemopurifier® is a first-in-class medical device with broad-spectrum capabilities against viral pathogens, including the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and numerous bioterror and pandemic threats. Human studies have demonstrated the Hemopurifier® to be safe and provide average viral load reductions of greater than 50% during four-hour treatment periods in both HCV and HIV infected individuals without the administration of antiviral drugs. The device is currently the subject of a human clinical study in India to evaluate its ability to accelerate viral load depletion when utilized in combination with HCV standard of care drug therapy. An investigational device exemption (IDE) to initiate clinical studies in the United States is pending with The Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
