Nymox says new Phase 3 results indicate fexapotide 'highly efficacious' in BPH
Nymox Pharmaceutical announces that new Phase 3 prospective randomized clinical trial results have confirmed that patients who received fexapotide as their initial treatment for BPH had superior efficacy results as early as 10 days compared to control patients who received placebo or who had prior history of other BPH medical treatments. These new Phase 3 results indicate that fexapotide in these trials was highly efficacious for first-line treatment of BPH, the company said. These findings are from analysis of the company's U.S. Phase 3 trials NX02-0017, NX02-0018, NX02-0020 and NX02-0022 including long-term follow-ups that were undertaken from 2009 to 2016. The present prospective randomized trial results are new findings. Paul Averback, CEO of Nymox said, "It is important to have now demonstrated for Nymox's fexapotide, both 1. that it leads to an early onset of clinically noticeable improvement; and 2. that it works well long-term as a first-line therapeutic for men who have not tried other treatments before. There is a major unmet need for a convenient, safe and efficacious treatment for countless men worldwide with BPH who are unhappy with their symptoms and who may be unhappy with their available choices."
