U.S. FDA Grants Orphan Drug Designation To Delcath Systems Inc For Use Of Melphalan Hydrochloride In HCC

Tuesday, 1 Oct 2013 04:30pm EDT 

Delcath Systems Inc announced 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.
