NX-1207 not effective in treatment of BPH


As regular readers will be aware, Nymox Pharmaceutical has been developing a drug called NX-1207 for the treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) and for the treatment of localized prostate cancer. The drug has been in different Phase III trials for each possible use.

NX-1207 is a drug that is injected directly into the prostate, making it very different to almost any other available or investigational form of treatment for either BPH or prostate cancer.

Over the weekend, however, the company apparently announced that NX-1207 is not effective in the treatment of BPH.  This does not mean that it may not be effective in the treatment of localized prostate cancer — but it does tend to cast some more doubt on that possibility.

As of 07:25 a.m. EST this morning, the company’s full statement has not been posted to its web site.
