Nymox Provides Current Phase 2 Prostate Cancer Clinical Trial Update

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., March 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (Nasdaq:NYMX) today provided an update on U.S. Phase 2 prostate cancer clinical trial activities for NX-1207, the company's new investigational drug being tested for early stage prostate cancer. The prostate cancer trial has reached the halfway point in patient recruitment. Safety assessments to date have been positive with no serious or unexpected adverse effects related to the drug. The NX03-0040 prostate cancer clinical study of 150 men is testing low (2.5 mg) and high (15 mg) single doses of NX-1207 for the effect to eradicate or shrink low grade localized prostate cancer tumors. The NX-1207 dose is administered directly into the area of the prostate where the cancer was detected. The procedure is performed by a urologist in an office setting, does not require anaesthesia, sedation, or catheterization, takes only a few minutes and involves minimal discomfort to the patient. Patients in the study are randomly allocated to either low or high dose NX-1207 or to active surveillance (no drug or surgical or radiation treatment). Patients undergoing active surveillance in the trial also have the opportunity to receive NX-1207 after their trial active surveillance participation is completed. NX-1207 is also in Phase 3 clinical trials in the U.S. and Europe for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Paul Averback MD, CEO of Nymox, said, "We are very pleased with the progress in this Phase 2 prostate cancer trial. Overall, for BPH and cancer NX-1207 has been tested in 10 clinical trials to date, of which 6 are ongoing or nearing completion. There is obviously a great amount of work that is being undertaken, by investigational centers across the U.S. and by the Company."

About 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. Most cases of prostate cancer are detected via prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening and usually found to have localized tumors. Surgical removal of the prostate (radical prostatectomy) and radiation therapy with or without androgen deprivation therapy are the most common active treatment options for localized prostate cancer but have significant short- and long- term adverse effects, including impotence, urinary dysfunction, and other complications.
