Delcath Submits CE Mark Technical File For Hepatic ChemoSAT™ Delivery System

NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: DCTH) today announced that the Company has submitted its CE Mark Technical File to its European Notified Body to obtain CE Mark approval for its proprietary chemosaturation system, which the Company intends to market in the European Union (EU) as the Delcath Hepatic ChemoSAT™ Delivery System. CE Marking is an indication that a medical device complies with the essential requirements of applicable medical device directives, and that the device has been subjected to conformity assessment procedures. Receipt of the CE Mark will allow Delcath to market and sell the product in countries in the EU.

"The EU represents an attractive opportunity for this product," said Eamonn P. Hobbs, CEO & President of Delcath Systems. "Our filing in the EU is seeking an indication for the percutaneous intra-arterial administration of a chemotherapeutic agent (melphalan hydrochloride) to the liver. With the EU's aging population and liver cancer rates on the rise we believe the Hepatic ChemoSAT Delivery System will fulfill an unmet clinical need for many liver cancer patients in this region. With the submission of our Technical File, and successful completion of the audits of our quality system and manufacturing facility, we expect potential CE Mark approval in mid-2011."

"With respect to U.S. regulatory status, we continue to expect to submit the remaining modules of our New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by the end of 2010, and will make additional announcements as we progress," added Mr. Hobbs.
