The most valuable sector of the Cannabis Industry may just be the extract of Cannabidiol (CBD), which has transformed into a wide variety of products ranging from health supplements to pet products. CBD based products have generated billions in revenue for leading Cannabis-based companies, creating a strong sense of luster as investors dissect the industry’s true value.
Much of the value is due to the fact CBD fits into the traditionally profitable biotechnology sector. Biotechnology stocks have been making huge gains for speculative investors for decades.
A fascinating biotech firm DCTH (Delcath Systems, Inc.), has an intriguing treatment for liver cancer. The company has initiated a global Phase 3 clinical trial for patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC), using its drug product Melphalan/HDS. DCTH reported that the FDA has approved the design of this phase 3 clinical trial using their Melphalan/HDS drug product under what is called a Special Protocol Assessment. If this is the first time you are hearing about DCTH, start doing your own due diligence right away. DCTH is a very interesting biotechnology company, that seems to be very undervalued in our opinion, and totally under the radar currently. DCTH has a market cap of only a couple million dollars, for a company with a drug closing in on a phase 3 clinical trial this seems quite low. DCTH could start receiving increased attention from the street at anytime. Discovering DCTH before the public at large, and before the company’s phase 3 clinical trial could witness a massive uptrend.
While it’s still relatively unknown, now may be the time to jump on this growth play.
A few CBD and Biotech stocks to consider include: Delcath Systems, Inc. (DCTH), Cara Therapeutics, Inc. (CARA), Insys Therapeutics, Inc. (INSY), Aphria, Inc. (APHQF), and Aurora Cannabis (ACBFF).
Delcath Systems, Inc. (DCTH)
Market Cap: $1.79M Share Price: $1.92
Delcath Systems, Inc. (DCTH), an interventional oncology company focused on the treatment of primary and metastatic cancers of the liver, just announced that the result of a multicenter analysis of outcomes in patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) treated with CHEMOSAT has been accepted for publication in the journal European Radiology.
Delcath’s investigational product – Melphalan Hydrochloride for Injection for use with the Delcath Hepatic Delivery System (Melphalan/HDS) – is designed to administer high-dose chemotherapy to the liver while controlling systemic exposure and associated side effects. DCTH has commenced a global Phase 3 FOCUS clinical trial for Patients with Hepatic Dominant Ocular Melanoma (OM) and has initiated a Registration trial called The ALIGN Trial for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). Melphalan/HDS has not been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for sale in the U.S. However, in Europe, their system has been commercially available since 2012 under the trade name Delcath Hepatic CHEMOSAT® Delivery System for Melphalan (CHEMOSAT), where it has been used at major medical centers to treat a wide range of cancers of the liver.
DCTH investors could be in for a huge windfall if they are able to obtain US approval.
