Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

     Delcath Systems, Inc. (the "Company") previously reported that on March 22,
2005, it entered into Incentive Stock Option Agreements and/or Nonqualified
Stock Option Agreements with each of its directors and named executive officers
providing for options (collectively, the "Options") under the Company's 2004
Stock Incentive Plan. Thereafter, the Company determined with the agreement of
each of the receipients that, since stock option agreements relating to the
Options had not been entered into within a reasonable time, it would be
appropriate to rescind the grant offers. The Company entered into agreements
with each of the receipients of the Options rescinding the Options as of April
5, 2005. The Company has not authorized the replacement of the Options with any
other award or payment.

     The Options consisted of the following: (a) options covering 200,000 shares
for M. S. Koly; (b) options covering 90,000 shares for Samuel Herschkowitz; (c)
options covering 140,000 shares for each of Mark Corigliano, Daniel Isdaner and
Victor Nevins; and (d) options covering 5,000 shares for Paul M. Feinstein.
