NEW YORK, Nov. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delcath Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: DCTH), an interventional oncology company focused on the treatment of rare primary and metastatic cancers of the liver, today reported business highlights and financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Recent Business Highlights

During and since the third quarter Delcath:

  • Entered a debt facility with Avenue Venture Opportunities Fund, L.P. providing up to $20 million with an initial $15 million funded at closing,

  • Submitted to and received approval from the FDA for an expanded access protocol for the use of HEPZATO™ Kit (melphalan hydrochloride for injection/hepatic delivery system) in the treatment of patients with liver dominant metastatic ocular melanoma,

  • Updated guidance of the Class 2 resubmission of the NDA to mid-year from the end of the first quarter,

  • Hired 3 senior executives in clinical operations, regulatory and medical affairs to support the resubmission of the NDA and further clinical development of HEPZATO, and

  • Announced it will host a comprehensive Investor Update event on Thursday, December 2nd, from 10:00am ET – 1:00pm ET covering FOCUS trial results as well as development plans for the use of HEPZATO in the treatment of patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and colorectal cancer.

In addition, during the third quarter independent investigators:

  • Presented three abstracts on the use of Chemosat® Hepatic Delivery System with Melphalan in the treatment of metastatic ocular melanoma (mOM) at the 2021 Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe conference (CIRSE) including,

    • Safety and toxicity of combining hepatic percutaneous perfusion with ipilimumab plus nivolumab in advanced uveal melanoma: phase 1b of the CHOPIN Trial1

    • Long-term results of percutaneous hepatic perfusion with melphalan in patients with unresectable liver metastases from uveal melanoma: a multicenter retrospective study2

    • Safety and efficacy of chemosaturation with percutaneous hepatic perfusion of melphalan for metastatic uveal melanoma: an 8-year retrospective study of 250 interventions in 81 patients3

  • Published Repeated percutaneous hepatic perfusion with melphalan can maintain long-term response in patients with liver cancers4 in the journal Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology.

“It’s very exciting to see the initial results of the CHOPIN Trial. These early results in the first trial to combine percutaneous hepatic perfusion with combination immunotherapy show promise with no dose limiting toxicities observed to date. The significant disease control and repeatability of the procedure with limited cumulative toxicity observed in these recent publications is consistent with what we have seen documented from other institutions,” said Dr. Johnny John, SVP Clinical Operations and Medical Affairs.

“During the quarter we strengthened our balance sheet and added senior personnel to the Delcath team,” said Gerard Michel, CEO of Delcath. “With the additional capital and senior leadership, Delcath has the required resources to accomplish its strategic priorities – the filing of the HEPZATO NDA in mid-2022, preparing for the subsequent US launch when approved, and expanding the development of HEPZATO into additional areas of high unmet need.”
