History in the making for DCTH's PHP treatment.
Written by Douglas Estadt
Eric Whitman, MD, of http://drericwhitman.wordpress.com/, is a board certified surgical oncologist specializing in the care of patients with melanoma, joins us today for an exclusive interview regarding the DTCH presentation at The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting.
- Survival rate tripled for cancer patients treated with PHP (Percutaneous Hepatic Perfusion) - 398 days vs. 124 with best alternative care
- The data was even better than the intial press release from April. The hepatic PFS (primary endpoint) was 245 days in the PHP arm and 49 days in the BAC (best alternative care) arm
- $745 million is the estimate for peak annual U.S. sales, if PHP is approved by the FDA
- Potential increase to $5.6 billion if this treatment is used in primary liver cancer as well as metastases from other types of cancer
We discuss the vast potential for Delcath's PHP system:
- the majority of the cases are not in the US, 80% of liver cancer is in Asia
- the possibility for huge "off-label" use
- the possibility for Delcath's PHP system to be used for many other cancer treatments in future
