NEW YORK, Sept. 17, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sarraf Gentile LLP announces that it is investigating Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Arena" or the "Company) (Nasdaq:ARNA) in connection with the rejection of the Company's weight loss pill lorcaserin by a panel of Food and Drug Administration experts.

According to the Associated Press, an FDA panel of experts voted 9-5 on Thursday, September 16, 2010, against the approval of lorcaserin saying some unresolved safety questions outweighed its benefits and raising concerns about tumors seen in rats in early-stage testing. The Company's share fell 45% percent, or $1.67, to $2.08 in trading Friday before the market opened, according to the Associated Press.
