BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sucampo AG ("SAG"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Sucampo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:SCMP) ("Sucampo"), announced today that it will present four posters evaluating the overall efficacy and tolerability of AMITIZA® (lubiprostone) as a treatment for chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC). These posters contain data demonstrating the efficacy and tolerability of AMITIZA regardless of age, gender, and race, a pooled analysis of the most frequent adverse events associated with AMITIZA, and an evaluation of the efficacy of AMITIZA in patients suffering from refractory constipation. Sucampo will present these data during the Annual Meeting of the Swiss Society of Gastroenterology in Basel, Switzerland on Friday, September 13, 2013.

"AMITIZA has been proven to be effective in treating a wide range of patients suffering from CIC," said Ryuji Ueno, MD, PhD, PhD, SAG's President and Chief Scientific Officer. "We are excited to present these data on AMITIZA, the world's first chloride channel activator, to gastroenterologists in Switzerland."

AMITIZA increases intestinal fluid secretion, softens stools and increases motility in the intestine, thereby facilitating the passage of stool and alleviating symptoms associated with CIC.

The following posters will be presented between 1:30-2:00 p.m. CEST (7:30-8:00 a.m. ET) at the Annual Meeting of the Swiss Society of Gastroenterology at the Basel Congress Center in Basel, Switzerland on Friday, September 13, 2013:
