Date:11/13/2012

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AtheroNova Inc. (OTCBB: AHRO), a biotech company focused on the research and development of compounds to safely regress atherosclerotic plaque and to improve lipid profiles in humans, today announced that its Russian licensing partner OOO CardioNova has formally submitted its Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation (Minzdrav).  This filing is the first step in the process of obtaining approval in Russia to conduct the Phase 1 human clinical trials in the centers selected by CardioNova.  It is expected that the approval of the application will be granted by the Ministry early in 2013 and the Phase 1 will commence shortly thereafter.

"We are extremely gratified in achieving this milestone in our path to human trials of AHRO-001," said AtheroNova CEO Thomas W. Gardner.  "OOO CardioNova has diligently pushed this filing forward with the utmost urgency and we want to thank them for their efforts to complete this major step in the process of clinical development of AHRO-001.  We continue to work aggressively toward our mutual goal of commencement of Phase 1 clinical trials within the next 90 days."

"We are pleased to have such a tremendous business partner in AtheroNova as we continue to endeavor toward approval of the Phase 1 protocol by the Ministry of Health," commented Dr. Alexey Eliseev, managing partner of Maxwell Biotech Group, OOO CardioNova's parent company. "Our objective is to work diligently with the Ministry of Healthcare for approval of our submission while making final preparations for the commencement of pre-screening and ultimately Phase 1 clinical trials in our Russian study centers.  We are excited with the prospect of initiating clinical trials in anticipation of potentially addressing one of the major health risks facing Russia, and throughout the world.

About AHRO-001

AHRO-001 is AtheroNova's first novel application for the treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerotic plaque is the primary, underlying cause of heart disease and stroke in industrialized countries. AHRO-001 uses certain pharmacological compounds to regress atherosclerotic plaque deposits through a process known as delipidization. Delipidization dissolves plaques in artery walls, which are then removed by natural body processes. AtheroNova is developing, and seeks to eventually market AHRO-001, a product that has the potential to become a new standard of care for patients prone to atherosclerotic plaque accumulation.
