Delcath To Offer Second Generation Hemofiltration Cartridge In U.S. Expanded Access Program
Date:6/18/2012

NEW YORK, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: DCTH) today announced that the Company has amended its Investigational New Drug (IND) application and its Expanded Access Program (EAP) to include the use of the second-generation hemofiltration cartridge of the Company's proprietary chemosaturation system.
