PORTLAND, Maine, July 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ImmuCell Corporation (Nasdaq:ICCC), a growing animal health company that develops, manufactures and markets scientifically-proven products that improve health and productivity in the dairy and beef industries, today introduced a newly designed corporate website to better communicate the value proposition that its products provide for its customers, the investment community and the media. The site can be accessed at www.immucell.com.

Michael F. Brigham, President and CEO of ImmuCell, said, "We are excited to unveil the new corporate website.  It more accurately, and graphically, depicts the ability of our products to maximize the productive capabilities of our customers' most important assets, and it communicates the increasingly important role that our products can play in reducing the amount of antibiotics in the human food chain."

ImmuCell markets the First Defense ® product line that provides "immediate immunity" against aggressive pathogens, including E. coli and coronavirus, in newborn dairy and beef calves without the use of traditional antibiotics. The addition of a claim against rotavirus infections is anticipated (subject to USDA approval) towards the end of the year.

Mastitis is the most significant cause of economic loss to the dairy industry totaling approximately $2 BILLION annually.  Subject to FDA approval, ImmuCell's product will treat infections in milk producing cows without the use of traditional antibiotics and without the standard milk discard requirements for cows treated with antibiotics, generally reducing the amount of antibiotics in the milk supply.
