RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Sept. 22, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Icagen, Inc. (Nasdaq:ICGN) reported today, at the 15th International Inflammation Research Association Conference in Chantilly, Virginia, results from a preclinical study demonstrating effects of senicapoc in isolated human lung mast cells.

The Company also presented additional results from a previously reported preclinical study that demonstrate the ability of senicapoc to reverse the antigen-induced increases in airway resistance and airway hyper-reactivity in a sheep model of asthma. These results were presented by Lee Robinette, Ph.D., Senior Research Investigator at Icagen.
