Delcath System's Two Chances of Legitimacy in 2011
2 comments | by: Chemistfrog February 17, 2011 | about: DCTH Font Size: PrintEmail Recommend 1 Share this page
Share0 In the world of biotechnology and big pharmaceuticals there has always been a delicate balance of dosage amount to obtain the desired efficacy versus the side effects associated with the higher dosages.

One company with a very innovative means by which to have the best of both worlds is Delcath Systems (NASDAQ: DCTH). Delcath’s innovative device involves the use of melphalan hydrochloride to treat metastatic melanoma of the liver (melanoma that has spread to the liver). Melphalan is typically administered orally or intravenously for multiple myeloma, ovarian cancer and occasionally malignant melanoma. However, administered levels required to treat melanoma were not effective, and earlier investigations found other applications for the drug.

Their novel device is in the form of their device/drug combination termed a “chemosaturation system”. Their proprietary system, as best described in this video, basically involves isolating the organ’s (liver for this application) return blood flow to the body by inflatable balloons placed in the vena cava.

The mephalan hydrochloride solution is directly injected into the artery supplying blood to the liver (the hepatic artery) to deliver a dose up to 100 times more concentrated than traditional chemotherapy would have. Then the return blood is rerouted after treatment through a filter device to remove the mephalan hydrochloride, and then it is returned to the patient’s body via a catheter in the jugular.

After treatment, the catheters are simply removed, balloons deflated and the patient is prevented from having his entire biologic system have to deal with the side effects often associated with chemotherapy. The targeted organ containing the malignant melanoma meanwhile received a substantial dose thereby increasing efficacy while maintaining a safety profile more palatable to the patient (and the FDA). For more technical information, please see the Delcath website.

Delcath Systems applied for an NDA for their device on December 22, 2010 with a request for priority drug review. The data in it exceeded their primary endpoints as noted here: "The FDA told us what result they would want to see" to approve PHP – an average duration of hepatic progression-free survival of 7.7 months in PHP patients and an average 4.0-month survival in control patients, Dr. Nutting said in an interview. “The results exceeded that," he noted, with an average hepatic progression-free survival of 245 days (8.2 months) in the patients randomized to initial PHP and an average of 49 days (1.6 months) in control patients who received best alternative care. The hazard ratio for the PHP patients compared with the controls for this primary end point was 0.301 (P =.0001).”

The typical FDA NDA acceptance deadline for this type of application is 60 days, though it may take a little longer with their deadlines being somewhat later this previous year. This puts the NDA acceptance with priority review at sometime from February 22nd to the end of the month. If given priority review, we should hear back from the FDA for its decision on whether to approve the novel device sometime in June.

Not to be forgotten in all the attention Delcath is getting for its submission to the FDA here in the US, on December 6 they submitted their CE Mark Technical File for marketing in the European Union. Per their CEO, Eamonn Hobbs, they expect a decision for CE Mark approval sometime in mid 2011 also. June and July could be an exciting time for Delcath Systems!

2010 marked a year of substantial volatility of the DCTH stock with the stock trading from 5.1 to well over 16 dollars per share. Current market cap of the company per Google Finance is about $469 million, which could be considered low for a company with a device that if approved for its current application request for metastatic melanoma of the liver could be generating good revenue over the next few years.

However, many other trials are likely being planned for other application such as other liver cancers as well as cancers of other organs that may be isolated from the rest of the human body and treated with the Delcath system. This sort of current application as well as potential applications could very well be drawing attention from big Pharma as a merger or acquisition target. Actually, there were rumors back in October 2010 pertaining to Delcath being a takeover target for Bristol-Meyers (BMY).

While I don’t give much credit to these types of rumors, it is interesting to note that the stock rose over 12% on these rumors. Additionally, Jim Cramer mentioned on his February 3rd program’s “Lightning Round” pertaining to Delcath that “This is in the sweet spot. Companies like these are getting bought every day. I'm going to say that I like your stock.”


2011 looks to be a promising and exciting year for a company on the verge of greatness or on the verge of defeat. I need to review the phase III data a little more closely to give an opinion for FDA approval in June of this year. However, I have viewed it enough to give an opinion on the NDA acceptance with priority review. I believe Delcath Systems will have their NDA accepted sometime the last week of February of 2011 with the request for priority review. This will cast DCTH into the spotlight as opinions and rumors will circulate at a feverish pace pertaining to buyout, FDA approval and company worth.

Regardless of the FDA’s NDA acceptance, there is still the Mark CE decision also coming at about the same time as the FDA decision so there are two chances for this company to succeed and start marketing its novel device. Essentially, DCTH should see catalyst after catalyst after catalyst this year and most of it in the first half of the year. Investors in for the “long haul” have the potential for real gains meanwhile traders riding the dips and spikes will have an exciting time to say the least.

This brings me to one big question, why with all the potential here is the short interest in the stock so high?! With a short interest of almost 21% and over 13 days to cover, per this article, somebody’s going to be getting concerned fairly soon now. Will it be the “longs” or the “shorts” that will come out on top with DCTH? Hopefully, the ones coming out on top will be the patients and healthcare providers that need another weapon in their arsenal against an unforgivable enemy, cancer.

Good luck, place DCTH on your watch list and feel free to post your opinions on the company, its stock and its novel cancer treatment device.

Disclosure: I am long DCTH.

"Our company had a productive third quarter, with progress made in several areas toward commercialization of our CHEMOSAT system," said Eamonn P. Hobbs, President and CEO of Delcath. "While some of our goals have yet to be achieved, we are pleased that we will be able to meet emerging interest in CHEMOSAT with faster than expected development of our Generation Two version of the system, which we believe will not only improve filtration efficiency, but potentially lead to new therapeutic possibilities as well. Along with the positive clinical data released during the quarter, these and other developments have positioned us well to begin realizing the potential of the CHEMOSAT system in 2012."

For the three months ended September 30, 2011, the Company's operating loss was $12.2 million, which included approximately $900,000 in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. This compares to an operating loss for the same period in the prior year of $7.4 million, which included approximately $1.4 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. General and administrative (G&A) expenses were $5.7 million for the third quarter of 2011, compared to $3.2 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in G&A was primarily due to an expansion in staff as the Company continued its progress in transitioning from a development stage company to a commercial enterprise and preparations for commercialization in Europe. Research and development (R&D) expenses were $6.4 million for the third quarter of 2011, compared to $4.3 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in R&D expenses was primarily due to our expanded research and development activities and regulatory expenses related to the preparation of our NDA submission for the FDA.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the Company's operating loss was $30.5 million, which included approximately $3.4 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. This compares to an operating loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 of $21.2 million, which included approximately $3.9 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. G&A expenses were $15.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, compared to $9.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The increase in G&A was primarily due to an expansion in staff as the Company continued its progress in transitioning from a development stage company to a commercial enterprise and preparations for commercialization in Europe. R&D expenses were $15.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, compared to $11.8 million during the first nine months of 2010. During 2010, the Company was incurring expenses related to wrapping up its Phase III clinical trial. The reduction in trial related expenses during 2011 was more than offset by an increase in expenses related to our expanded research and development activities and regulatory expenses related to our submission to the FDA.

At September 30, 2011, cash, cash equivalents and certificates of deposit were $44.7 million, as compared to $54.3 million at September 30, 2010.

NEW YORK, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems (DCTH) today announced financial results and highlights for its second quarter 2012 ended June 30, 2012 and recent corporate accomplishments.

Highlights for the second quarter 2012 and recent weeks include:
•Recognition of first product revenue in Delcath history
•FDA acceptance of the IND Amendments for use of the Generation 2 filter in the U.S. Expanded Access Program, compassionate use, and future clinical trials
•New drug application (NDA) filing with the FDA for the Company's proprietary chemosaturation system on target for mid-August 2012
•Addition of five leading cancer centers in the EU to the CHEMOSAT® initial launch and training program; a total 13 CHEMOSAT centers have been signed with presence in all seven key target EU markets
•Deployment of Quintiles trained medical science liaisons field force in the key target markets in Europe
•To date 16 CHEMOSAT procedures performed at five EU centers; 13 patients with liver dominant metastases from multiple tumor types have been treated, including cutaneous melanoma, ocular melanoma, gastric cancer, breast cancer and cholangiocarcinoma
•Raised $21.1 million in net proceeds through a follow on offering to fund operational progress and CHEMOSAT European launch
•Board of Directors strengthened with the addition of pharmaceutical industry veterans Laura A. Brege and Tasos G. Konidaris.

"During the second quarter, we made important progress with the European launch of CHEMOSAT, and generated our first product revenue in the Company's history," said Eamonn P. Hobbs, President and CEO of Delcath. "We have now signed agreements with 13 leading European Union cancer centers, exceeding our original expectations, and intend to sign additional centers in the coming months. Our medical science liaisons are in the field in our seven target markets educating oncologists on the potential of the CHEMOSAT treatment for their patients with liver dominant disease. To date, patients afflicted with liver metastases from five different types of cancer have been treated with CHEMOSAT. During the remainder of the year, our commercial focus in Europe will be to continue to bring clinical centers on line while we work with referring physicians to expand clinical adoption of the CHEMOSAT system as an important therapeutic option for these patients.

"In the U.S., our New Drug Application (NDA) is on schedule and we expect to submit the file to the FDA by mid-August," continued Mr. Hobbs. "Our amendments to our Investigational New Drug (IND) application to include Generation 2 in our Expanded Access Program and all future clinical trials and compassionate use cases were accepted by the FDA. Additionally, after consultation with the FDA, we have agreed to include the addition of Generation 2 in our NDA submission as a technical change to the Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Control module."

For the three months ended June 30, 2012, Delcath's operating loss was $15.4 million, which included approximately $1.0 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Operating loss for the three months ended June 30, 2011 was $10.5 million, which included approximately $1.2 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $7.2 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $5.2 million for the same period in 2011. The increase was primarily due to an increase in sales, marketing and operational support staff in the EU. Research and development (R&D) expenses were $8.2 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $5.2 million for the same period in 2011. The increase was primarily due to global regulatory efforts including continued preparation of the NDA submission to the FDA and the training and deployment of third party medical science liaisons.

At June 30, 2012, cash, cash equivalents and certificates of deposit were $29.3 million, compared to $30.8 million at December 31, 2011. Gross cash spend in the second quarter 2012 was $14.2 million, as compared to $8.2 million in the same period in the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by NDA submission related costs and staff increases in various functions to support EU commercialization. Average monthly operating gross spend was $4.7 million in the second quarter, a decrease from $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2012. Following the anticipated NDA submission, Delcath expects average monthly cash spend to decrease to between $3 million to $4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.465.311 von Magnetfeldfredy am 07.08.12 13:39:00anscheinend sind die Einschätzungen aber nicht von allen Marktteilnehmern so gut eingeschätzt.

Der Kurs dümpelt weiterhin bei (aktuell) $ 2,- rum.

Habe den Wert weiter auf meiner Watchlist.

:cool:
Der Umsatz liegt bei 106 000$, der operative Verlust bei 15Mio$. Delcath hat in seiner Geschichte noch keinen Cent Gewinn gemacht. Darüber hinaus neigt man dazu, die Erwartungen der Analysten zu verfehlen. Im letzten Quartal konnte man diese Erwartungen aber um einen Cent schlagen.
Darin begründet sich wahrscheinlich auch die leichte Aufwärtstendenz der Aktie seit Juni. Jetzt ist Delcath an der 100er (ca. 2,14$). Möglicherweise wird dieser Widerstand noch erreicht oder sogar leicht überwunden. Aber der Stochastik ist 1. stark überkauft 2. gedreht und 3. seine Signallinie geschnitten, so dass eine stärkere Korrektur bevorstehen sollte. Diese sollte oberhalb von 1,64$ enden, da ansonsten die Aufwärtstendenz zumindest angeknackst wäre.

NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems, Inc. (DCTH) announced today that it has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration seeking approval for the Company's proprietary chemosaturation system for use with melphalan hydrochloride in the treatment of patients with unresectable metastatic melanoma in the liver. The Company included its Generation 2 filter in its NDA submission as a technical change to the Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Control (CMC) module.

"Our team has achieved a significant milestone with the filing of our NDA," said Eamonn P. Hobbs, President and CEO of Delcath Systems. "We believe that our chemosaturation system provides the opportunity to satisfy a high unmet medical need to treat patients with unresectable metastatic melanoma in the liver. We also believe including our Generation 2 filter in the CMC module represents the fastest regulatory review path for the Generation 2 system, and that it is in the best interest of U.S. patients that we accelerate the potential availability of Generation 2."

"We have requested priority review of our NDA by the FDA. Assuming the NDA is accepted and that priority review is granted, our expected Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) date would be in February of next year. Based upon the strength of our Phase 1, 2 and 3 data, along with the limited treatment options available for patients with unresectable melanoma metastases in the liver, we believe that our application meets the FDA's criteria for priority review."

In Delcath's Phase 3 clinical trial (April 2010 data cutoff), comparing treatment with the Company's proprietary chemosaturation system to best alternative care (BAC) revealed that patients treated with chemosaturation therapy experienced a statistically significant extension in median hepatic progression free survival (hPFS) of 5.4 months (p=0.0001, hazard ratio 0.39) longer than patients treated with BAC according to independent review committee (IRC) blinded intent-to-treat (ITT) analysis. Previously reported investigator ITT analysis of these data showed an extension in median hPFS of 6.4 months (p<0.0001, hazard ratio 0.28) longer than patients treated with BAC. Priority review is granted by the FDA to those products that address significant unmet medical needs or have the potential to provide significant improvement compared to marketed products. The FDA has previously granted Delcath two orphan drug designations for melphalan in ocular and cutaneous melanoma, which will provide the Company with exclusivity in these indications for seven years if the NDA is accepted, reviewed and approved.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.497.008 von sdaktien am 15.08.12 17:18:59knapp über der Linie von $1,64 hat sich die Aktie ja eine Weile gehalten und ist anschließend weiter eingebrochen.

Somit genau wie von Dir angesprochen.

Nun haben wir Charttechnisch aber ein anderes Bild, da wir uns nun aus der Seitwärtsbewegung in den steigenden Bereich bewegen.

Wie ist Deine Einschätzung, ist dies nur eien Korrektur oder bereits die Gegenbewegung?

An den Basiszahlen hat sich nicht wirklich etwas geändert, somit würde (wenn überhaupt) nur die Charttechnik greifen.
Also grundsätzlich hat sich an der technischen Beurteilung nicht viel verändert. Immer noch ist die 100er für den Kursverlauf prägend und immer noch nicht hat Delcath diese Marke überwunden (dürfte momentan bei ca. 1,65$ liegen). Richtig ist, dass die Aktie ihre 38er überwunden hat, daraus aber eine Aufwärtsbewegung abzuleiten halte ich für verfrüht, zumal diese in der Seitwärtsbewegung seit dem Sommer auch immer wieder mal geschnitten wurde, ohne das es sich ausgewirkt hat.

Markttechnisch ist auch nicht alles in Butter. Für einen richtigen Kursaufschwung zieht das Handelsvolumen nicht mit. Der Stochastik ist bereits überkauft, steigt aber noch an.

Wahrscheinlich wird es eine ähnliche Konstellation geben wie im August. Ein Erreichen oder Überschreiten der 100er und dann einen Rücksetzer. Möglicherweise hält die Aktie dann bei ca. 1,25$. Da könnte sich eine Unterstüzung ausbilden. Für sehr stark halte ich die aber nicht. Ich denke, wichtig ist vor allem, dass die 1,11$ nicht mehr unterschritten wird, da sich der Abwärtstrend ansonsten weiter fortsetzen sollte.

Ich hab noch einen kurzen Blick auf die Fundamentaldaten geworfen. Demnach war das Ergebnis Q3 mit -0,18$ etwas besser als von den Analysten erwartet. an der Gesamteinschätzung hat das aber nicht viel geändert.
Der Anstieg heute hängt wohl an einer Pressemitteilung, genannt Investor Presentation.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 44.000.914 von sdaktien am 09.01.13 17:31:12Meiner Meinung nach wird es ein pre-run auf die FDA Entscheidung im Juni geben!
Wann weiß keiner, auf alle Fälle ist das jetzige Kursniveau sehr interessant für diese Annahme!

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 44.098.460 von multimediaperle am 03.02.13 23:14:09Bei mir schon lange im Depot, besonders jetzt nachdem beim Konkurrenten Celsion die Phase III gefloppt ist!
Warum sollte das Präparat von Delcath besser sein als das von Celsion?

Kurzfristig ist Delcath markttechnisch interessant. Die Aktie ist an der 100er, der Stochastik scheint aber schon im neutralen Bereich nach oben zu drehen, seine Signallinie hat er bereits überschritten. Wenn sich das bestätigt, solle Delcath zumindest seine 100er nachhaltig überwinden.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 44.099.174 von sdaktien am 04.02.13 10:43:45Celsion hat die primären Endpunkte der Phase III nicht erreicht, also eine Konkurrenz weniger!

DCTH 1.51

NEW YORK, February 4, 2013 - Delcath Systems, Inc. (DCTH) today announced that the Institut für das Entgeltsystem im Krankenhaus (InEk), the German federal reimbursement agency, has established a reimbursement pathway for the treatment of patients with liver metastases with the Delcath Hepatic CHEMOSAT® Delivery System for melphalan hydrochloride. The decision by the InEK followed an endorsement by the German Radiology Association, which prompted 47 cancer centers throughout Germany to submit applications under the Neue Untersuchungs- und Behandlungsmethoden (NUB) scheme for new technology reimbursement at specific hospitals. The Value 4 status given to the CHEMOSAT procedure, while not mandating reimbursement, allows participating cancer centers to negotiate reimbursement coverage for the CHEMOSAT procedure with all insurers serving their region. Under the NUB scheme, reimbursement pathways will potentially be available for treatment with CHEMOSAT regardless of primary cancer origin.
Eamonn P. Hobbs, President & CEO of Delcath said, "This is excellent news for both patients in Germany and Delcath, as it represents a significant positive step in our efforts to fully commercialize CHEMOSAT in Europe. This is the first reimbursement mechanism for our procedure in Germany, the biggest market for CHEMOSAT in the European Union. It is important to note that the application for coverage was supported by 47 cancer centers across the country, which we believe speaks to the medical need physicians in Germany see for CHEMOSAT. We will continue to work closely with the participating hospitals to achieve reimbursement with the insurers. With a direct sales force in place and training of the additional centers in Germany on the way, we are now in a good position to begin growing this market for CHEMOSAT."

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 44.102.994 von ultrawuffsn am 05.02.13 04:23:00Everyone saw the collapse of Celsion Corporation (CLSN) last week, which is something I already covered. As you may know, their drug Thermodox failed Phase III trials for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) - a form a liver cancer.

Liver cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world, and seems to be have rapidly increasing incidence in the United States especially (as we "catch up" to the rest of the world). About 30,000 new patients last year get diagnosed with liver cancer, with the vast majority of these cases being HCC.

The reason that there was so much hope for Thermodox leading up to the HEAT trial data release was because it offered a giant upgrade to our current chemotherapy regimen for liver cancer (and even others as well). Liver cancer is notoriously tricky, which is why there is a lot of emphasis on improvements on basic chemotherapy delivery. After all, finding new liver cancer drugs with new mechanisms of action is easier said than done.

But, had Thermodox succeeded, it would not have had trouble with healthcare reimbursement or general acceptance amongst oncologists. It used heat-activated doxorubicin, which is one of the most common chemotherapeutic agents out there.

Now that Thermodox seems to be out of the question, a lot of the attention turns to Delcath Systems (DCTH). Delcath is developing a system known as CHEMOSAT, which is a potential improvement to chemotherapy delivery to the liver - much like Thermodox. The difference is that CHEMOSAT isolates the liver's blood flow through a system of catheters, which allows a chemotherapeutic compound to be pumped directly into the liver while limiting damage to the rest of the patient's body through circulatory isolation.

The company had some trouble in recent years with the approval process, although these were largely manufacturing related and represented no real threat to the survival of CHEMOSAT's program.

Drawing more comparisons between Thermodox and CHEMOSAT, you can see that Thermodox failed the Phase III HEAT trial because it wasn't able to demonstrated statistically significant improvement in progression free survival of its treatment arm versus placebo arm. CHEMOSAT, in its pivotal Phase III trials, did exactly that. Also worth noting, both Phase III trials were conducted under special protocol assessment.

Anyway, I also believe that Delcath's market capitalization, which is approximately $113 million right now, is not representative of CHEMOSAT's real market potential after a potential FDA approval (which is estimated to be well over $2 billion). This makes me think that either DCTH would immediately have a jump following FDA approval, or have a gradual run-up as we head towards the PDUFA date of June 15th 2013.

Another point the bulls make is that CHEMOSAT is already approved and ready to go in Europe, and seems to be quite popular. Just today (February 4th) we got news that their healthcare reimbursement situation in Germany is looking terrific as well. Germany is key, of course, because it is the biggest liver cancer market in Europe.

While DCTH is inexpensive in terms of valuation, I think that the company is not all that cash rich ($28 million, as mentioned in the Q3 2012 earnings press release). The company does have $35 million in equity financing that won't be dilutive to shareholders, although they may want to raise cash for the marketing budget of CHEMOSAT going into 2014. I think there's a fair chance that we'll see an equity financing in the second half of 2013, following a hypothetical FDA approval of CHEMOSAT.

Celsion has a market capitalization of about $46 million at this point, which is clearly much lower than that of Delcath but justified. This low valuation does reduce Celsion's risk to the downside, but the results of the HEAT trial bring question as to whether or not Thermodox is worth anything.

Even if the company wanted to pursue strategic alternatives for the drug, I think they'd have a very hard time finding a buyer. If the company wanted to finance another Phase III trial for Thermodox, they'd probably have to raise the capital through share dilution. I really can't imagine anything that would put CLSN investors in a more sour mood than an equity financing following a Phase III trial failure.

I'm not sure if remaining CLSN shareholders are willing to accept their losses, but I do think that anyone willing to buy and hold DCTH as we get close to the PDUFA for CHEMOSAT could make very substantial gains just on the anticipation of the event. Given that DCTH has a catalyst ahead while CLSN doesn't, I think Delcath is the no-brainer option when it comes to current liver cancer investments.

Delcath Systems
Delcath Systems (DCTH) is a development stage, specialty pharmaceutical and medical device company focused on oncology, initially cancers in the liver. This stock is trading up 8.4% to $1.54 in recent trading.
Today’s Range: $1.40-$1.55
52-Week Range: $1.01-$4.74
Volume: 3.25 million
Three-Month Average Volume: 1.02 million
From a technical perspective, DCTH is ripping higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $1.35 with monster upside volume. This stock has been uptrending for the last month, with shares moving higher from its recent low of $1.16 to its intraday high of $1.55. During that move, shares of DCTH have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed DCTH within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if DCTH manages to clear some near-term overhead resistance at $1.67 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in DCTH as long as it’s trending above its 50-day at $1.35, and then once it sustains a move or close $1.67 with volume that hits near or above 1.02 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then DCTH will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $1.84 to $2.24.

Delcath Systems Inc. is poised to grow its market in Germany after getting the green light from the country’s federal reimbursement agency.
The New York City-based company, which has its manufacturing opertions in Queensbury, Warren County, makes a liver chemotherapy system called Chemostat, and has been setting up delivery channels in Europe for the past year. The decision from the German agency means that while insurers in that country are not mandated to cover Chemostat, hospitals are now permitted to negotiate for coverage.
Eamonn Hobbs, president & CEO of Delcath (Nasdaq: DCTH) said this presents a “significant positive step” in the company’s efforts to fully commercialize Chemostat in Europe.
“This is the first reimbursement mechanism for our procedure in Germany, the biggest market for CHEMOSAT in the European Union,” he said. “With a direct sales force in place and training of the additional centers in Germany on the way, we are now in a good position to begin growing this market for Chemostat.”
Delcath, which last week trimmed its local workforce, earned $146,000 from European sales in the first nine months of 2011—the first product sales in its 24-year history. It is awaiting FDA approval to sell Chemostat in the United States.

Und er Hauptkonkurrent Celsion hat die Phase III endpoints nicht erreicht....

Frage mich schon lange warum Delcath so weit unten steht?:rolleyes:
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 44.161.479 von Poppholz am 20.02.13 07:37:43erstmal seitwärts mit leichter Tendenz nach unten.

Aktuell $1,47
Eigentlich sieht Delcath nicht schlecht aus, der Kurs ging im Februar zurück, ebenso das Handelsvolumen. 38er und 100er generieren ein Kaufsignal. Das ist zwar nicht so ausgeprägt, aber immerhin.
Nur irgendwie werd ich den Verdacht nicht los, dass die Aktie nicht aus dem Quark kommt. Haber aber nichts dagegen Contra-Indikator zu sein.
Nachtrag: Genau bei 1.65$ befindet sich eine ehemalige Unterstützung, die durch den Sturz im November zu einem Widerstand geworden ist und ihren Ursprung im August hat. Genau da ist Delcath erst einmal gescheitert. In diesem Bereich befindet sich auch die 200er, was diesen Widerstand noch massiver macht.
Andererseits:Bricht Delcath da nach oben durch, könnte es massiv nach oben gehen.

Die gleiche Meldung gibt es hier, allerdings mit mehr Zahlenmaterial und auf Englisch.

Demnach lag der Verlust 2012 bei 0,85$. Erwartet worden waren aber 0,94$. Es ist aber immer noch eine Verlustausweitung von 0,68$ in 2011.

Anleger in den USA sind davon nicht begeistert. Laut CNBC ist die Aktie im nachbörslichen Handel um ca. 10% gefallen. Mal sehen was da morgen kommt.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 44.558.063 von multimediaperle am 03.05.13 01:05:41Stimmt, aber Delcath ist nicht tot, Delcath hat die EU-Zulassung und der neue Gen2 Filter, der in der EU eingesetzt wird, filtert 98% der Chemo wieder aus dem Blut gegenüber 72 % beim alten Filter!
Das brutale Ergebnis in den USA basiert auf Gen1 Filter, d.h. EU + ROW kann weiter behandeln, USA braucht neue Trials für Gen2 Filter!

Ohne Europäische Zulassung wäre Delcath tot, so ist es ein Schnäppchen wenn man ein paar Jahre Zeit hat, zudem hat Delcath 38 Millionen US Dollar cash und keine Schulden!

Trotzdem megascheiße!
Wie sagtest du Anfang des Jahres so treffend: Ein Konkurrent weniger.

Nun hat es Delcath selbst erwischt. Ich hab nochmal in den Annual Report Daten bei EDGAR geschaut. Demnach verbrennt Delcath jedes Jahr ca. 42Mio$ (Forschung ist teuer).

Wenn die also 38Mio$ Cash haben ist absehbar, dass das Unternehmen trocken läuft so lange man keine neuen Aktien ausgibt (denn Umsätze sind fast nicht vorhanden).

Um im Bild zu bleiben: Delcath ist nicht tot, liegt aber inzwischen auf der Intensivstation.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 44.559.485 von sdaktien am 03.05.13 10:24:24Leider ist es so wie Du es ausführst, gut nur das Delcath in der EU und in Asien zugelassen ist, auch der neue Filter Gen2 ist zugelassen, nur im Herstellerland der USA, wird es verweigert, Korruption, Machtspiele.....
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 44.567.717 von Magnetfeldfredy am 04.05.13 14:08:52wie viel Geld kommt durch die Vermarktung in EU und Asien rein?

Der Kurs fällt immer weiter, anscheinend reichen die Einnahmen nicht zur Kostendeckung aus.

Besteht die Möglichkeit, dass auch in den USA noch eine Markteinführung kommen wird?
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 44.797.813 von Poppholz am 06.06.13 11:52:34Delcath die Entäuschung pur, EU-Zulassung aber kaum revenues, Phase III angeblich super erreicht und dann 16:0 im AdCom gegen Delcath, reiner Betrug für mich und viel Geld verloren mit dem Chemodreck!:(
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 44.809.297 von Magnetfeldfredy am 07.06.13 18:50:39gab es denn eine Begründung dafür?

Haben wir hier ein Ähnliches Problem wie damals bei Dendreon, wo sich die Zulassung nur "verzögert" hat?

Aktuell scheint jegliche Phantasie aus der Aktie raus zu sein. Bei dem Kurs scheint nicht einmal ein Konkurent die Bude schlucken zu wollen, um das Wissen für sich zu nutzen.

:rolleyes:

New York, NY - October 1, 2013 - Delcath Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: DCTH), a specialty pharmaceutical and medical device company focused on oncology, announced today that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has granted the Company orphan drug designation for melphalan in the treatment of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC, or primary liver cancer).

Orphan-drug designation is granted by the FDA Office of Orphan Products Development to novel drugs or biologics that treat a rare disease or condition affecting fewer than 200,000 patients in the U.S. The designation provides the drug developer with a seven-year period of U.S. marketing exclusivity if the drug is the first of its type approved for the specified indication or if it demonstrates superior safety, efficacy, or a major contribution to patient care versus another drug of its type previously granted the designation for the same indication. It also provides tax credits for clinical research costs, the ability to apply for annual grant funding, clinical research trial design assistance and waiver of Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) filing fees.

Melphalan for use with the Delcath Hepatic Delivery System is not currently approved in the United States for the treatment of patients with HCC.

NEW YORK, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:DCTH) today reported financial results and operational developments for the fiscal fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013. Developments for the quarter and recent weeks subsequent to quarter end are as follows:

The Company's cash and cash equivalents increased in the fourth quarter 2013 and the first quarter of 2014; cash position as of February 28, 2014 was $32.7 million; fourth quarter 2013 cash utilization was $6.2 million
2014 average quarterly cash utilization expected to be between $5 and $6 million
In December 2013Delcath received comments from FDA on its proposed HCC trial protocol to investigate Melphalan HDS for first-line treatment of patients with unresectable advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or primary liver cancer; a supplemental Investigational New Drug (IND) application incorporating FDA comments was submitted to FDA in February 2014; FDA review of the IND is pending
The Company received the approval from shareholders authorizing its Board of Directors, at its discretion, to effect a reverse stock split of the common stock at a specific ratio within a range from 1-for-8 to 1-for-16, inclusive, on or prior to December 31, 2014

"During our fourth quarter we continued to make steady progress on our main priorities of CHEMOSAT clinical adoption in Europe and our clinical development program for HCC," commented Jennifer K. Simpson, Interim Co-President and Co-CEO. "We are optimistic that clinical adoption is progressing in Germany and the U.K., key target markets that we believe offer the best near-term revenue opportunities. Experience with CHEMOSAT therapy continues to build, with 89 procedures performed on 61 patients since we first introduced CHEMOSAT in Europe. Concurrently, we had dialogue with the FDA on our supplemental IND submission and with the clinical institutions that will be conducting our HCC studies. As a result of our February IND submission, and assuming scientific review and institutional review board approvals, we now anticipate clinical institutions to become activated in the second quarter of 2014."

Financial Results

For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013, total revenue was $0.3 million compared with total revenue of $0.2 million in the fourth quarter 2012. Operating expenses decreased by approximately 52% to $5.8 million from $12.0 million for the same period in 2012. The decrease is primarily due to a significant reduction in expenses related to the Company's NDA submission to the FDA, as well as the Company's overall cost management efforts. Operating loss was $5.5 million, which included non-cash stock-based compensation income of $0.3 million, as compared with an operating loss of $11.8 million, including $0.9 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense, in the year ago period.

For the full year ended December 31, 2013, total revenue was approximately $0.8 million of which $0.3 million was related to the recognition of previously deferred revenue. Total operating expenses decreased by approximately 38% to $33.3 million from $54.2 million for the same period in 2012. Operating loss for the year was $33.0 million, which included $0.3 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense, as compared with an operating loss of $53.9 million, including $3.8 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense, in the year ago period.

In 2013, Delcath raised approximately $43.2 million before related expenses, including approximately $26.7 million through the Company's At-the-Market equity offering program, $9.0 million through its Committed Equity Financing Facility program, and approximately $7.5 million through a registered direct offering.

Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2013 were $31.2 million, compared with $23.7 million at December 31, 2012. During the year, cash used in operating activities was $34.1 million, a 32% reduction compared to $50.0 million in the comparable period in 2012. The decrease in cash utilization was in part due to a reduction in NDA submission-related costs, and improved organizational and operational efficiencies.

During the first quarter through February 28, 2014, the Company raised approximately $4.5 million before related expenses through our At-the-Market offering program. As of February 28, 2014, the Company's cash and cash equivalents were $32.7 million, including $0.4 million in accounts receivables collection.

"During the second half of 2013, we made significant progress in streamlining our business operations and improving our operational efficiencies, while focusing on our key priorities. As a result, we successfully reduced our operating costs and cash burn to more sustainable levels, and we believe we have sufficient resources to execute our plan into the first half of 2015," said Graham G. Miao, Interim Co-President and Co-CEO.

On February 24, 2014, shareholders approved an amendment to the Company's Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation authorizing the Board of Directors to affect a reverse stock split of the Company's common stock at a specific ratio within a range from 1-for-8 to 1-for-16, inclusive, on or prior to December 31, 2014. If deemed necessary by the Board, a reverse stock split may enable the Company to regain compliance with NASDAQ's $1.00 minimum bid price requirement by June 9, 2014, and maintain its listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market.
