HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., Jan. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NYMX) reports today that a new peer review article has been published in Therapeutic Advances in Urology. The new publication reviews current progress in the development of Fexapotide Triflutate, Nymox's first-in-class new molecular approach to managing the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).The new article is entitled "Efficacy and safety of fexapotide triflutate in outpatient medical treatment of male lower urinary tract symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia" and is authored by Neal Shore, MD, FACS (Carolina Urologic Research Center, Myrtle Beach, SC); Ronald Tutrone, MD, FACS (Chesapeake Urology Research Associates, Baltimore, MD); and Claus G. Roehrborn, MD (University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX).
The full peer review publication is available online on the Therapeutic Advances in Urology website.
Therapeutic Advances in Urology is a prestigious top-tier peer review journal specialized in clinical urology.
According to the article, “For many men suffering from BPH, there remains an unmet need for office-based treatments for BPH that are effective and that have fewer side effects and better safety profiles than existing approved molecular and surgical treatments. Large long-term prospective randomized US studies of FT have shown statistically significant long-term improvement in BPH symptoms and objective outcomes including significant reduction in both spontaneous acute urinary retention as well as the subsequent incidence of BPH surgery. Based on a total of >1700 patient treatments including FT and placebo in US trials to date since 2002, FT has been shown to be well tolerated with an excellent safety profile. FT is a well-tolerated and efficacious clinic-based treatment for BPH involving an intraprostatic injection that requires only a few minutes to administer, with no catheter nor anesthesia requirements. FT injection represents a novel, first-in-class BPH treatment modality”.
Reprints of the article will also be available later from Nymox upon request after reprints become available from the publisher.
