Nymox Reports Successful New Long-Term Fexapotide Placebo Crossover Study Results:

Major Reduction in Incidence of Surgery

 
 
 

Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ:NYMX) is pleased to announce successful new study results from the long-term blinded placebo crossover group from the U.S. Phase 3 trials for fexapotide, the Company's lead compound in late stage development for enlarged prostate (BPH) and for localized prostate cancer. The aim of the study was to determine the clinical benefit fexapotide can provide to men who initially were double blind randomized to and received placebo, remained blinded as to their placebo treatment, and who subsequently required additional medical and/or surgical treatment. In the new study long-term outcomes were determined in 391 patients who were given double blind placebo injections, which were followed by crossover to other treatments at the patients' discretion. The numbers of blinded placebo patients who subsequently received surgical treatment during the next 2-3 years for their BPH symptoms were then prospectively analyzed. Results have now shown that there was 82-95% reduction in the number of these patients who required surgery after they received crossover fexapotide in the trial, as compared to patients who did not receive fexapotide but instead received crossover conventional approved BPH treatments (p<.0001).

“These exciting results from this long-term prospective analysis confirm what I and other researchers have consistently seen in the clinic --  that it is obvious that fexapotide greatly helps patients in terms of symptomatic benefit for their BPH;  and with these results, the clinical benefit also results in much less need for surgical intervention over the long-term. I believe these clinical results, combined with previously reported incidence and progression of prostate cancer in this patient population are truly important.  Furthermore, the extreme safety of this new drug and the lack of sexual side effects are remarkably helpful for patients,” said Dr. Mo Bidair, Medical Director of San Diego Clinical Trials in San Diego, CA and an Investigator who has participated for many years in the Fexapotide Clinical Trials.

Nymox has completed and fully financed the execution of seven Phase 3 U.S. BPH (prostate enlargement) clinical protocols, including 2 prospective randomized multicenter single injection double blind clinical trials; 2 U.S. repeat injection clinical trials; and 3 U.S. blinded long-term clinical trial extension studies. In addition, a number of Phase 3 safety and clinical pharmacology studies and analyses have been completed. The Company expects to file for approvals in the next 1-2 quarters.  The Company also expects to report further analyses and results when available in the near future. The Company will publish the findings of the fexapotide clinical trials in peer review medical journals as well as in presentations at medical and urological meetings.

“These prospective study results in blinded placebo crossover patients clearly demonstrate that fexapotide reduces the long-term need for surgery by 82-95% compared to approved conventional BPH treatments”, said Dr. Paul Averback MD, CEO of Nymox. “Fexapotide shows significant efficacy against prostate cancer as a therapeutic, and in addition has been shown to reduce the risk of prostate cancer when fexapotide is used to treat BPH. This is in stark contrast to some conventional BPH treatments in routine clinical use today which on the other hand increase prostate cancer risk, and which have many other well known undesirable side effects,” said Dr. Averback.

Nymox Announces Private Placements of $2.24 Million



Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ:NYMX) is pleased to announce that it has recently closed private placements and other investments in the Company for a total of $2.24 million. The investments totaled 965,649 shares at an average price of $2.32 with no warrants. The funds will be used for general corporate purposes. The majority of the investment came from long-term non-insider shareholders in the Company.

 

Erik Danielsen, CFO of Nymox said, "This additional funding from long-term supportive shareholders provides an extra cash cushion for our regulatory filing preparation activities currently underway. We are extremely pleased with the support we get from many of our long-term shareholders who share our assessment that the Company's near-term prospects are excellent. Our fact-based confidence in Nymox's future is also reflected in the significant ongoing buying of our shares in the open market by long-term shareholders and officers and directors of the company."

Nymox recently announced that long-term BPH studies of the Company's lead drug fexapotide showed excellent safety and efficacy results, in addition to a dramatic reduction in the long-term incidence of prostate cancer in the BPH studies compared to the expected incidence from comparable patient studies in the literature. Fexapotide treated patients also had significantly reduced long-term prostate cancer incidence compared to placebo-treated BPH patient controls.

Nymox CEO Paul Averback M.D. stated last week that further clinical trial results for fexapotide were expected to be reported in the very near future.

Nymox Announces Prostate Drug Progress

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., Aug. 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NYMX) is pleased to announce major progress in the evidence for the safety and efficacy of fexapotide, the Company's Phase 3 drug in the final stages of development for prostate enlargement (BPH) and for low grade prostate cancer. Fexapotide has completed 2 long-term large Phase 3 BPH studies‎ in the U.S. No other new prostate drug injectable currently in development has previously succeeded in enrolling and completing a fully U.S. study close to the size of either of Nymox’s 2 long-term studies. In addition, no other injectable prostate enlargement drug has previously been shown to have the excellent long-term safety and efficacy profile of fexapotide.

Fexapotide treated BPH patients were shown to have a remarkably low incidence of ‎later development of prostate cancer after up to 7 years of follow-up at top U.S. clinical trial centers. The incidence rate was 1.3% which is a long-term finding of major significance for the drug safety and efficacy. By comparison, for example in a population of patients with erectile dysfunction treated with PDE5 inhibitor drugs after 4 years the rate of subsequent prostate cancer was 19.5% (and 22.7% in controls) as recently reported in a large U.S. study published in the Journal of Urology (Volume 196; 3, 2016). The quoted study was in a population of middle aged and elderly men without prostate cancer, similar to the Nymox study population.

Fexapotide will be filed for approval in the next 1-2 quarters and the company envisages no significant new cash needs ‎for the pre-marketing development of fexapotide. The drug will potentially be partnered for marketing with a larger company if satisfactory terms can be negotiated. While there are other companies with early stage drug candidates and/or drugs with questionable results and worrisome safety issues such as immunological reactions and common danger signs such as frequent injection related fevers, Nymox has none of these problems and considers there to be no competition for at least the next 5-10 years in this field because of the long times required to catch up to Nymox. Another reason some potential competitors may fail is if they are developing a biological, because this therapeutic market is unlikely to support a drug which costs thousands of dollars per dose to manufacture‎. Nymox has solved the above problems and fexapotide is a drug with low manufacture cost, high projected profit margin, and no known danger signs such as listed above. Most importantly, the drug has completed 2 U.S. long-term studies which have taken 7 years to complete and no competitor has completed even their first fully U.S. study and therefore the field is at least 5-10 years behind.

Nymox also completed a 147 patient prospective controlled prostate cancer study for low grade localized cancer. After 18 months the fexapotide treated groups had statistically significant better outcomes in terms of cancer progression than controls. While some injectable candidates at other companies have reported anecdotal results in two or three patients, Nymox found similar or better results than the latter anecdotal reports even in its untreated study controls. The Company considers that in this category there is no other proprietary new injectable that has yet been through a large clinical trial with any demonstrated efficacy.

Nymox CEO Dr. Paul Averback commented "Our extremely low cash requirements and strong, comprehensive successful clinical trial results add up to a very strong position for the Company's future. In this context we furthermore look forward to reporting in the very near future on some additional new clinical trial results for fexapotide."

Nymox Reports Long-Term Prostate Cancer Results in 7 Year Prospective Study of 995 U.S. Middle-Aged and Elderly Men Without Cancer.

Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ:NYMX) announced today results from the Company's 7 year prospective placebo controlled double blind studies of treatment of 995 U.S. men with the Company's lead drug fexapotide. Men who received fexapotide showed a major reduction in the incidence of prostate cancer, compared to placebo and compared to the known and expected normal incidence of the disease.

 

The men in the study received fexapotide or placebo for the treatment of their prostate enlargement (BPH) symptoms. All men were thoroughly evaluated to exclude any prostate cancer prior to qualifying for enrollment in the studies. The participants were enrolled at over 70 top well-known U.S. urological investigational centers, and were followed for up to 7 years (median of 5 years) after treatment. The study analyzed all cases of prostate cancer that were subsequently diagnosed. The expected rate of new prostate cancer in the U.S. general male population in this age group is in the 5-20% range after 7 years. In the BPH population in published large trials of drugs for the prevention of prostate cancer, the incidence of new prostate cancer cases after 4-7 years has been reported in major studies to be 20-25%.  The new data analysis from the Nymox fexapotide study has now shown the statistically significant and very low incidence of 1.3% for prostate cancer in this comparable fexapotide treated BPH population.

"These results are astonishingly good. Other drug treatments and controls tested in similar studies have been associated with a prostate cancer incidence 10 times higher than the results reported today by Nymox for fexapotide. This is truly good news. The data strongly indicate that in addition to benefit for BPH symptoms, fexapotide will also help to prevent cancer in these patients," said Dr. Ronald Tutrone, one of the Principal Investigators in the Nymox Fexapotide Prostate Cancer and BPH studies. Dr. Tutrone is Chief of the Division of Urology, Greater Baltimore Medical Center; Medical Director of Chesapeake Urology Research Associates and Chairman of the William E. Kalhert Endowment for Urological Research.

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."

Nymox Announces Prostate Cancer Clinical Trial Results From Completed 18 Month Endpoint Study

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., Feb. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NYMX) today announced results from the completion of the Company's U.S. 40 month (18 month outcomes) localized prostate cancer Phase 2 NX03-0040 clinical trial of fexapotide triflutate (NX-1207). The study successfully met its pre-determined endpoints. Cancer progression clinical outcomes were significantly improved in the fexapotide treated patient groups.

The clinical trial commenced in February 2012 at 28 U.S. investigational clinical trial sites and enrolled 147 patients with low grade localized (T1c) prostate cancer. The study lasted 40 months overall from the first patient randomized to the last patient 18 month endpoints.

Results from the completed 18 month outcome study after a single injection of fexapotide included the following:

  • Absence of tumors (Primary Endpoint) controlled for size in baseline area: fexapotide 15 mg superior to control (p=.035); crossover fexapotide 15 mg superior to control (p=.002); crossover fexapotide overall superior to control (p=.014).
     
    75.5% reduction in biopsy proven prostate cancer Gleason upgrades (pathological progression) after 18 months in fexapotide 15 mg treated patients compared to control (p=.0055). 71.7% reduction in prostate cancer Gleason upgrades in fexapotide treated patients overall (p=.0045 vs controls).
     
    84.8% reduction after 18 months in surgery or radiotherapy instituted for prostate cancer Gleason upgrade (biopsy worsening) in fexapotide treated patients overall compared to control group (p=.014).
     
    54.8% reduction after 18 months in surgery or radiotherapy instituted for all causes with or without prostate cancer Gleason upgrade in fexapotide 15 mg treated patients compared to control (p=.026).
     
    Significant improvement for fexapotide patients compared to controls in 4 out of 4 Secondary Endpoints. Tumor volume reduction in the treated area, combined dosages (p=.04); tumor volume change in prostate overall, fexapotide patients overall (p=.014); median tumor grade outcome in the treated area, all dosages (fexapotide median benign, vs control median Gleason 3+3), and superior median tumor grade in prostate overall, fexapotide 15 mg vs controls.
     
    Consistent safety results with no significant drug-related adverse events and no significant related sexual adverse events.
     
    Overall superior results for the fexapotide 15 mg dose compared to the 2.5 mg dose (dose-response).
     
    Other statistically significant improvement outcomes in fexapotide patients compared to controls, to be presented comprehensively at medical meetings.

"These results demonstrate that a single targeted office injection of fexapotide has led to statistically significant improvement in outcomes with much less surgery or radiotherapy required after 18 months. This means a reduction in patient discomfort, and a reduction in permanent side effects and life changes when the more invasive treatments are required," said Paul Averback, CEO of Nymox.

Dr. Averback added, "Based on these outcomes, we believe there are exciting potential patient benefits from one or more painless fexapotide office injections for this common and distressing condition."

The Company will report at a later date concerning its plans for moving the compound forward toward the market for this important medical problem.

Nymox Provides Update From Shareholders Annual General Meeting December 16, 2015.

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., Dec. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NYMX) is pleased to report an update on the Corporation's business as of December 16, 2015. At the Company's AGM in Nassau, the following highlights were presented:

  • The Company is moving forward with the activities of preparing for filing for approval of fexapotide triflutate (NX-1207) 2.5 mg for the treatment of prostate enlargement (BPH). The Company is pleased with the solid progress that has been made. The date(s) of anticipated filing will be reported in due course.

Dr. Paul Averback, CEO said "Our management team has over the past several months been very focused on taking the necessary steps that will allow our Company to file for regulatory approvals for fexapotide triflutate in various markets. We expect to provide an update in the near future with regard to the filing for approval for our BPH drug fexapotide triflutate."

Phase 3 trial results for fexapotide showed excellent safety profile and after 3.5 years statistically significant increased improvement in symptom scores vs placebo; statistically significant increases in responder rates vs placebo; statistically significant decrease (after 2 years) in need for surgery vs placebo; and statistically significant better nocturia outcomes vs placebo. Fexapotide is associated with a decrease in prostate cancer risk. By comparison, some commonly used approved BPH treatments have been linked to increased cancer risk. Fexapotide has enhanced compliance and patient convenience compared to oral medications. Fexapotide is given as a single painless office treatment injectable. Approved oral medications generally involve daily pills intended for the rest of the patient’s life.

  • The 18 month low grade localized prostate cancer trial of fexapotide 2.5 mg and 15 mg has been completed, and results are nearing completion of analysis. The timing of reporting of results is on target and top-line data will be presented in the very near future.

In corporate developments, Richard Cutler of Houston, TX was appointed to the Board of Directors. Richard Cutler is a graduate of Brigham Young University and Columbia University School of Law. Mr. Cutler has worked at several major national law firms, and in 1996, formed Cutler Law Group in Newport Beach, California and subsequently Atlanta, Georgia and Houston, Texas, a firm which specializes in corporate and securities law, as well as international business transactions. Dr. Averback, Randall Lanham, Professor David Morse, and James G. Robinson were re-appointed to the Board of Directors. Paul McDonald has retired from the Board. The Company gratefully acknowledges Mr. McDonald's steadfast, popular and highly valued solid service on the Board of Directors since 2006.

With reference to the Company’s quarterly financial filings, the international clients of Cutler & Co. have been acquired by transfer of responsibility to Thayer & O’Neal of Houston, Texas.  Due to this recent transfer the Company’s quarterly filings have been slightly delayed and will be filed in the very near term.

Nymox Reports Results of Prospective Cross-Over Study of Fexapotide Treatment for Prostate Cancer 
HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ (October 29, 2015) 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. The study results indicate that randomized control subjects who subsequently switched to fexapotide had long-term outcomes significantly superior to control patients who did not change (cross-over) to fexapotide treatment. 
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 (p<.03). 
In addition to the positive clinical progression results, the primary endpoint of the study (re-biopsy absence of tumor in the initially positive biopsy baseline area of the prostate) also reached statistical significance (p<.03) in the cross-over study. At the 18 month assessments, the post-treatment biopsy taken from the treated area of the prostate which was initially positive at baseline, showed absence of tumor (tumor presence in re-biopsy of baseline positive focus n=0) in the cross-over treated patients, which was statistically significant compared to controls (p<.03). 
The Company expects to report results from its long-term NX03-0040 low grade localized prostate cancer study in the fourth quarter. 
One of the major problems with current prostate treatments for localized prostate cancer (radical prostatectomy, external beam radiation, or brachytherapy) is the relatively high incidence of reported sexual dysfunction post- treatment. In 9 studies, NX-1207 treatment has been shown to have no significant adverse effect post-treatment on sexual function or testosterone levels.

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ (July 27, 2015) Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ:NYMX) announced today that the Company's U.S. long-term extension prospective double-blind Phase 3 BPH studies NX02-0017 and NX02-0018 of fexapotide triflutate (NX-1207) for BPH have successfully met the pre-specified primary endpoint of long-term symptomatic statistically significant benefit superior to placebo. Fexapotide showed an excellent safety profile with no evidence of drug-related short-term or long-term toxicity nor any significant related molecular side effects in the 2 studies (n=978). 
The Company now intends to meet with authorities and to proceed to file where possible in due course for regulatory approvals for fexapotide triflutate in various jurisdictions and territories. 
The Company will present a public webinar and conference call today July 27 at 4:30 p.m. EDT (see below).  
The primary endpoint variable of the long-term study was improvement in the AUA BPH Symptom Score which was statistically significant (p<.02) in fexapotide-treated patients compared to placebo, at a median duration of 42 months (3.5 years) after a single double-blind injection treatment of fexapotide vs. saline placebo. In addition, responder analysis for the primary endpoint variable met the prespecified endpoint (p<.01). All subjects from both studies with 2 years or more duration follow-up after a single painless injection were eligible, however all documented treatment failures of any duration in the studies from day 1 onward were also included in the data as treatment failures. Patients were followed double-blind up to 65 months (5.4 years) after a single injection. 
Highlights of the pivotal Phase 3 extension top-line results are summarized as follows: 
• Median duration of 3.5 years from a single injection treatment mean improvement of 5.3 points in AUA BPH Symptom Score. Statistically significant (mean p<.025; median p<.02) vs saline placebo injection. 
• Mean improvement of 7.1 points in AUA BPH Symptom Score (primary endpoint variable) after median duration of 3.5 years in first-line BPH treatment of fexapotide treated subjects (p<.025 vs placebo). 
• Patient responder rate: Statistically significant higher proportion (64%) of long-term improved patients in AUA BPH Symptom Score (primary outcome variable) after a single injection in fexapotide treated subjects  vs controls (p<.005). 
• Improvement of nocturia: Percentage of patients with stabilization or improvement of frequency of nocturia in fexapotide treatment superior to placebo (p<.03). 
The Company also reported on new Phase 3 data of lowered incidence of surgery in patients in Phase 3 studies NX02-0020 and NX02-0022. 
• Reduced incidence of surgery: Subjects in Phase 3 studies NX02-0020 and NX02-0022 with 1 or 2 injections of fexapotide had statistically significant reduction of BPH surgery within 24 months of fexapotide treatment (1.7% incidence of surgery in 2 years) (p<.02 vs placebo). 
In addition, the following advantages of the new drug are highlighted:
• Safety profile highly superior to existing treatments. Minimal or no sexual, hormonal or cardiovascular or other debilitating side effects.  
• Reduced cancer risk in Phase 2 data: U.S. Phase 2 data showing therapeutic effect of fexapotide on prostate cancer. Phase 2 data showed fexapotide treated low grade localized prostate cancer (Gleason 3+3 or less) had statistically significant less progression compared to controls. By comparison, some commonly used older approved BPH treatments have been linked to increased cancer risk. 
• Enhanced compliance and patient convenience compared to oral medications. Fexapotide is given as a single painless office treatment injectable. Older approved oral medications generally involve daily pills intended for the rest of the patient’s life.

NYMOX GENERAL INFORMATION:
Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation specializes in the research and development of therapeutics and diagnostics, with a particular emphasis on products targeted for the unmet needs of the aging population. The Company’s new drug for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is in Phase 3 development. Nymox has drug technology for other indications such as E. coli infection, Alzheimer’s disease, oncology, and infectious disease.

BPH is a chronic condition that is a common affliction of older men. There is an unmet medical need for an effective treatment for BPH without the side effects associated with currently approved drugs or the complications associated with surgical procedures.

NX-1207 is administered by a urologist in an office setting without the need for anaesthetics or sedation or for catheterization.  Patients report little or no pain or discomfort from the procedure.  Open label follow-up studies have shown evidence of long lasting benefit from NX-1207 treatment with a significant proportion of men who received a single dose of NX-1207 reporting maintained improvement in BPH symptoms without other treatments for up to five years or more.

BPH is one of the most commonly diagnosed diseases in the male U.S. population. The condition can seriously impact the health and quality of life of older men and can lead to acute urinary retention, incontinence, and other serious consequences. It is estimated that 50% of men in their 50s have pathological signs of prostatic hyperplasia and from 26 to 46% of men between the ages of 40 to 79 years suffer from moderate to severe urinary problems and symptoms associated with BPH.

The Company offers NicAlert® and TobacAlert® tests for measuring tobacco product exposure.
