Paul Averback, CEO of Nymox said, "During the third quarter Nymox made progress in the development of NX-1207 for BPH and low-risk localized prostate cancer. The pivotal Phase 3 trials of NX-1207 for BPH will reach full enrollment shortly. Safety Monitoring Committee reviews of safety data have been positive. The U.S. Phase 3 NX02-0020 re-injection trial of NX-1207 for BPH completed enrollment in July in only 12 months and full efficacy and safety data for the NX02-0020 trial is expected within a few months. The Phase 2 prostate cancer study patient accrual is progressing well."
"The excellent enrollment in the NX-1207 repeated injection study shows that patients are very comfortable with this relatively painless procedure. Urologists are enthusiastic about the potential of NX-1207 for the treatment of BPH, and for focal treatment of low grade cancer of the prostate," Dr. Averback added.
