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.

Under the Expanded Access Protocol, eligible patients will be able to receive treatment through enrollment at participating cancer centers. These centers will be able to begin treating patients upon receipt of institutional review board (IRB) approval which the company expects most centers will receive in the third quarter of 2012.

Hobbs, President & CEO of Delcath Systems. "We are encouraged by the reports on initial patient treatments in Italy and Germany, where physicians h
