AboutDelcathSystems

Delcath Systems, Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical and medical device company
focused on oncology. Our proprietary drug/device combination product, the
Delcath Hepatic Delivery System, 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.
Outside of the United States, our proprietary product to deliver and filter
melphalan hydrochloride is marketed under the trade name Delcath Hepatic
CHEMOSAT^® Delivery System (CHEMOSAT Delivery System for Melphalan.) The
Company obtained authorization to affix a CE Mark for the Generation Two
CHEMOSAT Delivery System for Melphalan in April 2012. The right to affix the
CE mark allows the Company to market and sell the CHEMOSAT Delivery System for
Melphalan 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 (CHEMOSAT Delivery System for
Doxorubicin). 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. For more information, please
