Nymox Reports Results of Prospective Cross-Over Study of Fexapotide Treatment for Prostate Cancer

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., Oct. 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ:NYMX) reported today that long-term randomized cross-over data from the Company's trial of fexapotide triflutate for low grade localized prostate cancer has shown statistical significance in efficacy compared to controls.

These results are the initial 18 month follow-up results for the fexapotide trial for prostate cancer to be reported. The cross-over study arm of NX03-0040 consisted of 35 subjects. Based on biopsy progression the proportion of patients who progressed on biopsy and required biopsy progression-related surgery or radiotherapy in the cross-over group (0%) at 18 months was significantly less than in the control group (p<.03).

The cross-over group patients received randomized fexapotide 15 mg or 2.5 mg in a single treatment targeted toward the positive baseline cancer focus identified in initial positive biopsies. There were no cases in either of the 2 fexapotide dosage level treatment groups with biopsy progression at 18 months...
