Independent Clinical Investigators to Present Data on Nymox BPH Drug at American Urological Association Meeting in Chicago September 25HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2008 - Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ: NYMX) today announced that new clinical trial data concerning the safety and efficacy of the Company's NX-1207 for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) will be presented at the North Central Section of the American Urological Association Meeting in Chicago September 25. The paper is authored by leading clinical research investigators participating in the U.S. clinical trials of NX-1207.
NX-1207 is Nymox's patented drug candidate for the treatment of BPH, a common affliction of men related to enlarged prostate. Blinded clinical trials to date have shown that men treated with NX-1207 reported statistically significant improvement in BPH symptoms 3 months after a single NX-1207 treatment with no reported serious drug-related side effects, including no (0%) significant sexual side effects. In two multi-center Phase 2 U.S. prospective randomized blinded clinical trials, the aggregated mean improvement in the Primary Endpoint of BPH Symptom Score for 2.5 mg NX-1207 was 10.3 points or a 44% improvement in Symptom Score.
Results of 6 follow-up studies of available subjects from NX-1207 clinical trials have provided evidence of durable benefits from NX-1207 treatment for up to 54 months from the date of treatment.
BPH treatment represents a growing market with more than 100 million men worldwide being estimated to suffer from BPH symptoms. The disorder is a common affliction of older men, affecting approximately half of men over age 50 and close to 90% of men by age 80, and is associated with growth in prostate size as men age. BPH causes difficulties with urination associated with aging, such as urination at night, urge to void frequently, hesitancy, weak stream, and other problems, and can cause acute urinary retention requiring immediate medical attention.
