CLINTON, N.J., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Ikaria Holdings, Inc., a fully integrated critical care biopharmaceutical company, announced today that Daniel Tasse has been appointed President and Chief Executive Officer.

We expect to benefit strategically and operationally from Daniel's many years of involvement in both drugs and devices across many therapeutic areas and healthcare settings, including critical care. His leadership capabilities and his knowledge of in- hospital markets will be particularly valuable as Ikaria continues to build an exceptionally strong capability to serve the needs of critically ill patients."

Daniel Tasse stated, "The formation of Ikaria last year created a company with the potential to redefine the critical care industry. With Ikaria's industry-leading INOmax(R) product and a pipeline of unique therapeutic compounds and numerous business development and R&D opportunities, we have a very exciting and unique opportunity available to us. I feel very fortunate to join this team in a leadership position with the goal of building a legendary company in the years ahead."
