The symposium, "Fexapotide Triflutate: A Safe and Effective First In Class Injectable for BPH" was chaired by James Bailen MD FACS of Louisville, KY. The other panel members at the Symposium were Dr. Franklin D. Gaylis of San Diego CA, Dr. Stephen Richardson of Salt Lake City UT, and Dr. Jed Kaminetsky of New York NY. Dr. Bailen said, "FT is a simple administration for any urologist, and offers a major improvement in BPH management with minimal side effects and great safety profile." Dr. Kaminetsky stated "Fexapotide is an exciting treatment alternative for the symptomatic man suffering from lower urinary tract symptoms without the commonly seen side effects associated with approved medicines and minimally invasive procedures. If approved it will fill a medical need and offer the practising urologist a safe and effective new treatment to help their patients." At the Symposium detailed clinical data on the Phase 3 clinical trials that have been completed for Fexapotide and that have shown excellent safety and efficacy for the treatment of BPH was presented. Scientific data supporting the safety and efficacy from non-clinical and laboratory testing and analysis was demonstrated. The main presentation was followed by a panel discussion and by an interactive question and answer session with the specialist doctors in attendance.
