FDA Agrees With AtheroNova's Clinical Development Plan as Proposed
Date:12/14/2011

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AtheroNova Inc. (OTCBB: AHRO) ("AtheroNova"), a biotech company focused on the research and development of compounds to regress atherosclerotic plaque has established a clear development plan, including Phase I and Phase II protocol outlines, based on the recently finalized minutes of its pre-IND (Investigational New Drug) meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its AHRO-001, a compound for the treatment of atherosclerosis.  The Company has incorporated guidance from the FDA and is moving forward with its IND enabling activities.  In addition, the sourcing and production of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) is progressing according to schedule. 

"As a result of the supportive feedback from the FDA, we have established a clear development plan for AHRO-001, including Phase I and Phase II human clinical studies." said Thomas W. Gardner, CEO of AtheroNova.  "Based on the success of our interactions with the FDA, AtheroNova plans to move forward with the submission of the IND application during 2012, as planned." 

"The imaging of plaque lesions has made significant strides in the last few years and AtheroNova is planning to use the state of the art combination of intravascular/near-infrared spectroscopy as a critical measurement tool for the regression of coronary artery disease when moving forward with its Phase I and Phase II studies," said Balbir Brar, DVM, PhD; SVP, Drug Development of AtheroNova.  "Critical information of the coronary plaque morphology and lipid content will assist in the measurement of clinical progress of this and future therapies in plaque management.  We appreciate FDA's suggestions in AtheroNova's study outlines and acceptance of intravascular/near-infrared spectroscopy use in evaluating plaque reversibility."

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.

About AtheroNova

AtheroNova, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, AtheroNova Operations, Inc., is a development stage company currently researching novel patents-pending applications of certain natural compounds to regress atherosclerotic plaque deposits, a process called delipidization. The Company plans to develop multiple applications for its compounds, to be used in pharmaceutical grade products for the treatment of atherosclerosis, obesity and lipomas.
