Fexapotide is a safe and painless single injection treatment given in the urologist's office. The drug is in Phase 3 for BPH and Phase 2 for prostate cancer. It has been tested in over 1700 drug and placebo treatment administrations in the U.S. As a treatment for BPH, fexapotide shows long-term efficacy without the safety risk and side effect concerns or added cancer risk associated with currently approved BPH treatments. As a treatment for prostate cancer fexapotide was found to lead to highly statistically significant reduction in disease progression in a large 147 patient multi-year Phase 2 study of U.S. men with low grade cancer.Dr. Paul Averback, CEO of Nymox said, "The new results now add a third dimension to fexapotide utility: clinical prostate cancer prevention. The drug has now demonstrated statistically significant prospective long-term outcome data showing dramatic reduction in the incidence of newly diagnosed prostate cancer after minimal BPH treatment with fexapotide. Nymox announced in Q3 last year that it will seek regulatory approvals for fexapotide for BPH based on the long-term BPH safety and efficacy data announced Q3 last year. We believe that the exciting new prostate cancer prevention results reported today will add to the evidence in fexapotide's favor towards our goal of widespread major benefit for middle-aged and elderly men." Dr. Averback added, "We are extremely grateful to the thousands of people who have been part of these clinical trials. The Company also thankfully acknowledges our shareholders for their long-term commitment that supports these studies." For more information please contact email@example.com or 800-936-9669.
