Date:2/15/2012

NEW YORK, Feb. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: DCTH) and the European Institute of Oncology (Instituto Europeo di Oncologia – IEO) introduced the Delcath Hepatic CHEMOSAT® Delivery System to media at a Feb. 15 press conference and discussed the status of the first European patients treated with the technology. CHEMOSAT is a critical new treatment option for patients who suffer from inoperable liver-dominant metastases.

During the press conference, the IEO, a premier European cancer treatment and research center located in Milan, also inaugurated a specialized task force for melanoma diagnosis and skin cancer treatment, underscoring their commitment to broadening availability of treatment options in Europe.

The IEO initiated CHEMOSAT treatments on January 31, 2012, and has thus far treated three patients— two with liver metastasis stemming from ocular melanoma and one from gastric cancer. Patients responded well to treatment, and after observation physicians reported that their condition is good and expected to improve in the coming weeks.

"CHEMOSAT is a unique option for those suffering from cancers in the liver, which have significantly lower survival rates when compared to other cancers," said Dr. Alessandro Testori, a surgical oncologist and director of the Division of Melanoma and Skin-Muscle Sarcoma. "The IEO is pleased to be the first center in Europe to perform these procedures in an institutional setting. For the first time, patients now have access to a new technology which will ultimately create options for those in need."

Dr. Umberto Veronesi, Scientific Director at the IEO and speaker at the press conference, also discussed the importance of CHEMOSAT and its potential reach across Europe. Other physicians and members of the specialized task force, including Dr. Franco Orsi, Dr. Pier F
