BiodefenseStocks.com, an Investor News Portal for the Biodefense Sector, Reports on the Recent News From the CDC HEALTH ADVISORY

POINT ROBERTS, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/16/05 -- www.BiodefenseStocks.com, an investor news portal for the Biodefense sector within the HomelandDefenseStocks.com (HDS) content umbrella, reports on the recent news from the CDC HEALTH ADVISORY on possible Anthrax exposure in the Department of Defense mail facility.

Samples taken from a mail facility at the Pentagon at a Remote Delivery Facility (RDF) on March 10 tested positive for anthrax. On the advice of the CDC, hundreds of workers were offered antibiotics as a precaution. Anthrax bacterial infection can be transmitted in three forms: cutaneous (skin), inhalation, and gastrointestinal.

Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTC BB: AEMD) CEO, Mr. Jim Joyce stated:

"The ease of delivery is what makes anthrax a viable threat. Fortunately, Anthrax is not an infectious agent that utilizes humans as a host to spread infection in an uncontrollable manner.

"Regardless, we believe we can improve treatment outcomes through the development of viral filtration systems that rapidly clear circulating pathogens, including anthrax toxins."

Anthrax Q & A: Anthrax and the Mail

How can mail get cross-contaminated with anthrax?

The CDC does not have specific studies to address this; however, cross-contamination of the mail could occur during the processing, sorting, and delivery of mail when an envelope comes in contact with an envelope, piece of equipment (e.g., an electronic sorting machine), or other surface that is contaminated with Bacillus anthracis spores. In addition, airborne spores in contaminated postal facilities before they were cleaned might play a role.
