We released a new report today--an Updated Executive Informational Overview--on AtheroNova Inc. (AHRO-OTC). AtheroNova is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the research and development of bile acid therapeutic compounds to safely dissolve or regress atherosclerotic plaque and improve patients’ lipid profiles. Atherosclerotic plaque, a buildup of fat, cholesterol, and other substances in the walls of arteries, is the main underlying cause of cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks, strokes, and peripheral artery disease (PAD).
The Company’s most advanced candidate, AHRO-001, works to reduce the incidence and severity of plaque by employing a bile acid to reduce the volume of or stabilize existing plaque deposits and prevent new deposits from forming. The compound also shows significant preclinical lipid panel improvement and has beneficial effects on glucose levels involving multiple mechanisms of action.
