Equity Research on Icagen, Inc. and Celgene Corporation - Biopharmaceuticals Have the Cure

HONG KONG--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2011) - Today, www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com released its industry report highlighting Icagen, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICGN) and Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ: CELG). Full fundamental and technical analysis is available at www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com/Reports.php.

This sector demonstrates renewed investor interest as new and lucrative therapies come to market. The FDA approved the first new drug in 50 years to treat auto-immune disorder lupus in March 2011, and we expect approval of new treatments for Hepatitis C virus around mid-year. The 2010 health care reform act authorized by the FDA, will establish a regulatory pathway for approving "biosimilar" drugs, which in turn will increase production and shorten FDA approval times. Longer term, it is expected that a wider acceptance of biomarker research and genetic-targeted clinical studies to help limit expense. It is viewed that therapeutics for cancer and infectious diseases and autoimmune and inflammatory treatments are primary growth areas.
