IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - October 07, 2010) - AtheroNova Inc. (OTCBB: AHRO) ("AtheroNova"), a biotech company focused on the research and development of compounds to regress atherosclerotic plaque, announced that the Company's initial preclinical animal study conducted at a major university demonstrating the study group having a 95% less occurrence of arterial plaque compared to the control group was reported in the Preclinical Results section of the October 4, 2010 edition of "BioCentury Part II, Essential Surveillance for Biotech and Pharma." BioCentury, a leading industry publication, also reported that AtheroNova plans to submit an Investigational New Drug application (IND) for the Company's atherosclerotic plaque regression compound during the first quarter of 2011.

"As reported in BioCentury, we are proceeding with our plans to initiate the submission of an IND for our atherosclerotic plaque regression compounds during the first quarter of 2011," stated Thomas W. Gardner, CEO of AtheroNova. "We are very encouraged by the initial preclinical results and look forward to proceeding with our development program while preparing for Phase I human trials following the planned IND submission."
