Encouraging interim results for BPH drug

|By:, SA News Editor

In an interim analysis of efficacy data in a repeat injection study of Nymox's (NYMX +2.8%) investigational drug NX-1207 for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), subjects showed a mean improvement in AUA BPH Symptom Index Score of 8.2 points (n=160). The results compare favorably to the mean improvement of 7.6 points demonstrated in the company's first reinjection trial.

NX-1207 is being evaluated as a treatment for BPH and prostate cancer. It is administered via a transrectal injection that does not require anesthesia or sedation. Patients will undoubtedly prefer a small bore syringe.
