HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., Dec. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ: NYMX) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed all the Company’s required tasks in preparation for its planned upcoming regulatory submission for Fexapotide Triflutate for the treatment of BPH.
“Speaking for Management, we are extremely pleased that all the external factors which had caused some moderate delays this past year are behind us at this time.” said Paul Averback, CEO of Nymox. “We hope that our supporters understand that there are many complex parts involved, and these times have seen certain adjustments that we and many other groups have had to handle with some patience. Given the usual seasonal delays, we expect that the formal date that we send the first application in will not be immediate, but we will continue to report material developments on a timely basis.”
Dr. Averback said “Patients treated with FT in long-term U.S. clinical trials had very low incidence of prostate cancer after 4 years, much lower than expected from comparable population studies, and statistically much lower than placebo treated subjects in the studies. That is very exciting to us. Patients treated with FT in long-term US clinical trials also had statistically very low incidence of acute urinary retention after 4 years, and statistically less need for invasive surgery — both of which are also very exciting to us. These long-term clinical trials showed none of the typical sexual worsening often seen in long-term treatment for this common condition. That is good news for countless people in this unfortunate situation.”
“The clinical studies prospectively assessed the benefits of fexapotide for those patients who had failed on oral medications or were intolerant of their side effects or who did not want to take a daily medication for the rest of their lives. The studies showed in these patients where their treatment had failed with conventional medications, that there was a highly statistically significant benefit for them in their long-term symptom reduction after Fexapotide treatment.” he said.
Fexapotide treatment involves a single brief well tolerated office administration of Fexapotide given by injection with prostate ultrasound localization, with no anesthesia or catheter required.
