About Delcath Systems
Delcath Systems, Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical and medical device company focused on oncology. Delcath's proprietary system for chemosaturation is designed to administer high dose chemotherapy and other therapeutic agents to diseased organs or regions of the body, while controlling the systemic exposure of those agents. The Company's initial focus is on the treatment of primary and metastatic liver cancers. In 2010, Delcath announced that its randomized Phase 3 clinical trial for patients with metastatic melanoma in the liver had successfully achieved the study's primary endpoint of extended hepatic progression-free survival. The Company also completed a multi-arm Phase 2 trial to treat other liver cancers. The Company obtained authorization to affix a CE Mark for the Generation Two CHEMOSAT® delivery system for melphalan hydrochloride in April 2012. The right to affix the CE mark allows the Company to market and sell the CHEMOSAT system for melphalan hydrochloride in Europe. In October 2012, the Company satisfied all of the requirements to affix the CE Mark to the Hepatic CHEMOSAT Delivery System device for intra-hepatic arterial delivery and extracorporeal filtration of doxorubicin hydrochloride injection, providing a regulatory pathway for the CHEMOSAT Delivery System to deliver and filter doxorubicin for countries in Asia that accept the CE Marking as part of their national regulatory requirements. The Company has not yet received FDA approval for commercial sale of its system in the United States. The Company's NDA has been accepted for filing and substantive review by the FDA.
