Delcath Submits New Drug Application For Proprietary Chemosaturation System To The U.S. Food And Drug Administration
Date:8/15/2012

NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: DCTH) announced today that it has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration seeking approval for the Company's proprietary chemosaturation system for use with melphalan hydrochloride in the treatment of patients with unresectable metastatic melanoma in the liver. The Company included its Generation 2 filter in its NDA submission as a technical change to the Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Control (CMC) module.

"Our team has achieved a significant milestone with the filing of our NDA," said Eamonn P. Hobbs, President and CEO of Delcath Systems. "We believe that our chemosaturation system provides the opportunity to satisfy a high unmet medical need to treat patients with unresectable metastatic melanoma in the liver. We also believe including our Generation 2 filter in the CMC module represents the fastest regulatory review path for the Generation 2 system, and that it is in the best interest of U.S. patients that we accelerate the potential availability of Generation 2."

"We have requested priority review of our NDA by the FDA. Assuming the NDA is accepted and that priority review is granted, our expected Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) date would be in February of next year.  Based upon the strength of our Phase 1, 2 and 3 data, along with the limited treatment options available for patients with unresectable melanoma metastases in the liver, we believe that our application meets the FDA's criteria for priority review."

In Delcath's Phase 3 clinical trial (April 2010 data cutoff), comparing treatment with the Company's proprietary chemosaturation system to best alternative care (BAC) revealed that patients treated with chemosaturation therapy experienced a statistically significant extension in median hepatic progression free survival (hPFS) of 5.4 months (p=0.0001, hazard ratio 0.39) longer than patients treated with BAC according to independent review committee (IRC) blinded intent-to-treat (ITT) analysis. Previously reported investigator ITT analysis of these data showed an extension in median hPFS of 6.4 months (p<0.0001, hazard ratio 0.28) longer than patients treated with BAC. Priority review is granted by the FDA to those products that address significant unmet medical needs or have the potential to provide significant improvement compared to marketed products. The FDA has previously granted Delcath two orphan drug designations for melphalan in ocular and cutaneous melanoma, which will provide the Company with exclusivity in these indications for seven years if the NDA is accepted, reviewed and approved.

About Delcath SystemsDelcath 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 Delcath Hepatic CHEMOSAT® delivery system in April 2011 and for its Generation 2 hemofiltration cartridge for CHEMOSAT in April 2012. The right to affix the CE mark allows the Company to market and sell the CHEMOSAT system in Europe. The Company has not yet received FDA approval for commercial sale of its system in the United States. The Company continues with preparations to further support its NDA submission and intends to seek FDA approval for commercial sale of its chemosaturation system with melphalan.
