POINT ROBERTS, WA.; March 16, 2005 -, an investor news portal for the Biodefense sector within the (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. (OTCBB: 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."

In addition, airborne spores in contaminated postal facilities before they were cleaned might play a role
