Delcath Systems Company Profile

Our objective is to establish the use of the Delcath system as the standard technique for delivering chemotherapy agents to the liver and to expand the Delcath technology so that it may be used in the treatment of other liver diseases and of cancers in other parts of the body. Our strategy includes the following: Complete clinical trials to obtain FDA approval for the Delcath system with doxorubicin to treat malignant melanoma that has spread to the liver. Our highest priority is completing the Phase III clinical trials, data preparation, statistical analysis and regulatory documents associated with an application for approval of commercial sale of the Delcath system in the United States. Obtain approval to market the Delcath system in the United States for the treatment of other forms of liver cancer using other chemotherapy agents. In addition to researching the use of other chemotherapeutic agents with the Delcath system to treat cancer, we plan to research the use of other compounds with the Delcath system to treat other diseases, such as hepatitis. Our timing to begin these studies will depend on our ability to establish strategic alliances with pharmaceutical manufacturers or other strategic partners in conjunction with our research into other therapeutic compounds or raise additional funds for these purposes. Additional FDA approvals will be required to market the Delcath system for these uses. Introducing the Delcath system into foreign markets. We will seek to establish strategic relationships with domestic and foreign firms that have recognized presence or experience in foreign markets that we intend to target. Our strategy is to focus on markets that have a high incidence of liver cancer and the means to provide and pay for cancer treatments. According to the World Health Organization, many Asian and European countries, including China, Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, have a higher incidence of liver cancer than the United States. We intend to seek to enter into arrangements with strategic partners who have experience with obtaining regulatory approval or marketing medical devices in those markets. Similarly, we will target countries with a high incidence of cancers that are known to metastasize to the liver, such as melanoma (Australia) and colorectal cancer (Southern Europe). Reduce the cost of the Delcath system’s filtration system. The filters we currently use to detoxify blood outside the body comprise a significant portion of the cost of the Delcath system kit. We are researching technologies which may enable filters to be produced at a lower cost. Leverage our core double balloon catheter technology to expand our product offerings to include systems for administering chemotherapy agents in other parts of the body. Early studies have indicated that the same principles employed in liver isolation may be applied to other organs. By modifying the catheter, including the spacing, size and number of the balloons, the Delcath system initially may be adapted for use in treatment of cancers in other areas of the body, including the limbs, kidneys, lungs, and other organs of the abdominal cavity. Future studies may investigate the use of the Delcath system in other organs as well.
