Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (Nasdaq:NYMX) announced today the publication of a new peer-reviewed paper in Therapeutic Advances in Chronic Disease featuring NX-1207, the Company's innovative treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). NX-1207 is currently in Phase 3 trials in the U.S. The paper, "The potential for NX-1207 in benign prostatic hyperplasia: an update for clinicians" is written by Neal Shore MD FACS, Medical Director of the Carolina Urologic Research Center, Myrtle Beach, SC and Barrett Cowan MD FACS of Urology Associates PC, Englewood, CO. Dr. Shore and Dr. Cowan are well known experts in urology and have participated as clinical investigators in clinical trials of NX-1207 as well as in multiple follow-up studies of the drug. The paper is available online at http://taj.sagepub.com/content/early/2011/09/23/2040622311423128.abstract.
In Authors Opinions, the authors write: "The authors have both participated as clinical investigators in the NX-1207 trials, and have found the administration of the drug to be a quick and uncomplicated procedure which takes a few minutes only, and which can be easily done by urologists, most of whom do very similar injections on a routine basis (e.g. during prostate biopsy and prostate infiltrations). There is no need for any new or special equipment, and no special training will be required.
Compared to existing oral drug therapies (alpha blockers and 5-alpha reductase inhibitors), the use of NX-1207 does not have daily and lifelong compliance issues or the concerns of polypharmacy facing the aging population as well as the risk for drug-drug interactions. In addition, NX-1207 has not shown any of the bothersome and limiting sexual side effects of the oral therapies (such as impotence, loss of libido, or retrograde ejaculation)."
NX-1207 is a novel patented drug developed by Nymox which is currently in Phase 3 trials. The drug has successfully completed a series of blinded controlled multi-center U.S. clinical trials where a single dose of NX-1207 has been found to produce symptomatic improvements about double that reported for currently approved BPH drugs without causing the sexual or cardiovascular side effects associated with those drugs. Follow-up studies have shown evidence of long lasting benefit with a significant proportion of men who received a single dose reporting maintained improvement in BPH symptoms for up to 7 ½ years.
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.
