AtheroNova Completes Successful Pre-IND Meeting with FDA on AHRO-001
Date:10/26/2011

IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AtheroNova Inc. (OTCBB: AHRO), a biotech company focused on the research and development of compounds to regress atherosclerotic plaque, today announced that it has completed its pre-IND (Investigational New Drug) meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). During the meeting, the FDA provided guidance on the development plan of AHRO-001, AtheroNova's lead patent-pending compound for the prevention and regression of atherosclerotic plaque. The goal of the pre-IND meeting was to obtain clarification on the nonclinical, clinical and chemical, manufacturing and control (CMC) requirements that need to be met in order to submit an acceptable IND.

"Our meeting with the FDA represents another important step in our clinical drug development plan. Our strategy to bring AHRO-001 into human clinical trials is now clear," said AtheroNova CEO Thomas Gardner. "Combined with our recent commitment from Maxwell Biotech Venture Fund to fund both Phase I and Phase II clinical trials and our licensing partnership with Maxwell Biotech Group, we are on track to commercialize novel therapies that can help millions of those suffering from cardiovascular disease."

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 natural 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 plans to develop multiple applications for its patents-pending compounds that can be used in pharmaceutical-grade products for the treatment of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis and related pharmaceutical costs run more than $41 billion annually in the United States alone.  Market sectors potentially served by AHRO-001 include: Cardiovascular Disease, Stroke, Peripheral Artery Disease, Dementia and Alzheimer's and Erectile Dysfunction, all of which have been linked to atherosclerosis.
