Delcath Receives Notice of European Regulatory Approval for Hepatic CHEMOSAT™ Delivery System

NEW YORK, April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: DCTH) today announced that the Company has been notified of CE Mark approval for its proprietary Hepatic CHEMOSAT™ Delivery System. The product has been approved with an indication for the percutaneous intra-arterial administration of a chemotherapeutic agent (melphalan hydrochloride) to the liver.

CE Marking confirms that a medical device complies with the Essential Requirements of the Medical Device Directive, and that the device has been subjected to conformity assessment procedures. Receipt of the CE Mark allows Delcath to market and sell the product in countries in the European Economic Area.

"Receipt of our CE Mark represents the first regulatory approval for this product, and marks the beginning of the Company's transition into a fully commercial enterprise," said Eamonn P. Hobbs, CEO & President of Delcath Systems. "With its rising liver cancer rates, Europe represents a large opportunity for this product. We believe the Hepatic CHEMOSAT Delivery System may ultimately fulfill an annual unmet clinical need for as many as 100,000 liver cancer patients in this region.  With the CE Mark in hand, we will now begin to build inventory and establish the commercialization infrastructure in Europe, including assembling a direct sales organization to cover countries in Northern Europe and establishing a network of third party distributors in Southern Europe. We will also begin establishing and training initial sites in select European countries as Centers of Clinical Excellence for the chemosaturation procedure."
