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 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 CHEMOSAT system for melphalan hydrochloride in Europe. In October 2012, the Company satisfied all of the requirements to affix the CE Mark to its CHEMOSAT Delivery System for use with doxorubicin hydrochloride injection, providing a regulatory pathway for CHEMOSAT with doxorubicin hydrochloride injection for countries in Asia that accept 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. The Company is seeking approval for its proprietary chemosaturation system with melphalan hydrochloride as a treatment for patients with unresectable metastatic melanoma in the liver.
