HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., Jan. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ:NYMX) reports today that the results of Phase 3 clinical studies of Fexapotide Triflutate undertaken from 2009-2016 are now published in World Journal of Urology.

The article is entitled “Fexapotide Triflutate: Results of Long-Term Safety and Efficacy Trials of a Novel Injectable Therapy for Symptomatic Prostate Enlargement” and is authored by 17 leading U.S. urologists:

Neal Shore, MD, FACS (Carolina Urologic Research Center, Myrtle Beach, SC);
Ronald Tutrone, MD, FACS (Chesapeake Urology Research Associates, Baltimore, MD);
Mitchell Efros, MD, FACS (Accumed Research, Garden City, NY);
Mohamed Bidair, MD (San Diego Clinical Trials, San Diego, CA);
Barton Wachs, MD (Atlantic Urology Medical Group, Long Beach, CA);
Susan Kalota, MD (Urological Associates of Southern Arizona, Tucson, AZ);
Sheldon Freedman, MD, FACS (Freedman Urology, Las Vegas, NV);
James Bailen, MD, FACS (First Urology, Louisville, KY);
Richard Levin, MD, FACS (Chesapeake Urology Research Associates, Towson, MD);
Stephen Richardson, MD (Jean Brown Research, Salt Lake City, UT);
Jed Kaminetsky, MD, FACS (University Urology, New York, NY);
Jeffrey Snyder, MD, FACS (Genitourinary Surgical Consultants, Denver, CO);
Barry Shepard, MD, FACS (Urological Surgeons of Long Island, Garden City, NY);

The full peer review publication is available online on the World Journal of Urology’s website.

World Journal of Urology is a prestigious top-tier international peer review journal specialized in clinical urology.

According to the new publication, “In conclusion, data from these 4 U.S. studies show statistically significant long-term improvement in BPH symptoms and objective outcomes including significant reduction in spontaneous AUR as well as the addition of BPH surgery;” and “FT is well tolerated with an excellent safety profile. Hence, FT is a safe and efficacious clinic based treatment for BPH involving an intraprostatic injection that requires only a few minutes to administer, with no catheter nor anesthesia requirements. FT injectable represents a novel, first in class BPH treatment modality.”

The lead author of the article, Dr. Neal Shore, said, “FT represents a new first in class treatment for patients with lower urinary tract symptoms and BPH. FT administration via direct intraprostatic injection is ideally suited for the urology clinic. The collective trial data demonstrates both short and long-term safety for FT; moreover, the long-term efficacy data demonstrates its major potential as an alternative to conventional daily oral BPH medications.”

Dr. Ronald Tutrone, a co-author of the report, said, “The co-authors and urologists with whom I have spoken and who have attended presentations of data are very impressed with the results. I personally know of countless patients who will benefit from this new, non-surgical treatment.”

Reprints of the article will also be available later from Nymox upon request after reprints become available from the publisher.

Fexapotide has shown significant long-term benefit for prostate enlargement (benign prostatic hyperplasia, BPH). The recent results of Phase 3 studies of Fexapotide for BPH were communicated in podium and symposium presentations to the American Urological Association at four recent sectional Annual Meetings in 2017 in Scottsdale, AZ (North Central AUA November 15, 2017); Havana, Cuba (New York AUA November 6, 2017); Naples, FL (South Central AUA November 27, 2017) and Savannah, GA (Northeastern AUA October 12, 2017). The Company has filed for approval for Fexapotide in Europe for BPH for prostate enlargement in 2017, and the filing was validated in September 2017.
