Dover, Delaware–(Newsfile Corp. – May 19, 2020) – Encode Ideas, L.P. Initiates Research on Delcath Systems, Inc (NASDAQ: DCTH). The full research publication is available here and available on our website at www.encodelp.com. A summary follows:

Encode Ideas is initiating coverage on Delcath Systems (NASDAQ: DCTH) as a high conviction investment idea. Delcath is an interventional oncology company developing a liver isolating technology, known as Hepatic Delivery System (HDS), that allows for high-dose chemotherapy, to be targeted towards tumors in the liver, while minimizing systemic exposure. HDS has been approved in Europe as a medical device, and is commercialized, as Chemosat, by Delcath’s partner medac GmbH. In the United States, FDA considers HDS a drug/device combination, and therefore regulates it as a drug. Delcath is currently running an 80 patient Ph3 registrational study with HDS, called FOCUS, in patients with ocular melanoma metastatic to the liver (mOM). The study is completely enrolled and we are budgeting for top-line data late this year.
