GLEN ALLEN, Va., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Star Scientific, Inc. (NASDAQ: STSI), today announced that John Isner, the top-ranked American player on the ATP World Tour, will be the next brand ambassador for the Company's Anatabloc® dietary supplement for anti‐inflammatory support. Isner is the second brand ambassador for Anatabloc®, joining PGA Tour champion Fred Couples.

Since the start of his professional career in 2007, after completing four years at the University of Georgia, Isner has been recognized as one of the rising stars of American tennis.  Some of Isner's accomplishments include winning five ATP tour titles, leading the United States to the 2012 Davis Cup semifinal, winning the longest match in tennis history at Wimbledon in 2010, defeating world #1 Novak Djokovic and former world #1 Roger Federer during the first half of the 2012 season, and reaching the quarterfinals of the 2012 London Olympics.  Isner also broke into the ATP top 10 during the 2012 season and is often considered a future Grand Slam contender. 

Isner recently learned about the benefits of Anatabloc® and started using the supplement to help provide anti-inflammatory support naturally.  "Anatabloc has allowed me to stay on the court longer and in the gym longer, while at the same time helping with the recovery process.  I simply do not feel as sore and fatigued as I have in the past," Isner stated.

"We are extremely proud to have John teaming up with Anatabloc®, a product that is becoming increasingly popular in the world of professional athletics," said Isner's manager, Sam Duvall, Vice President at Lagardere Unlimited Tennis. 

"John is a phenomenal athlete who has become a giant in the world of tennis," stated David Dean, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Star Scientific, Inc. "He will be a tremendous partner for Star Scientific as he helps spread the word about Anatabloc®, and the difference it is making in his game. We are excited to have him as an Anatabloc® brand ambassador. Sales continue to grow and we are looking forward to a great year ahead."

Isner's decision to become an Anatabloc® brand ambassador coincides with the Company's results of testing from HFL Sport Science, one of the leading organizations in doping control and research. HFL Sport Science batch tested Anatabloc® for the presence of a wide range of more than 147 prohibited substances using HFL's ISO17025 accredited nutritional supplement screens. The testing found Anatabloc® to contain no banned substances.
