IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation [OTC Markets – NYMXF] (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of its recently reported private placement of USD 2 million. This new funding was undertaken for general corporate purposes and was priced at USD 1.00 per share. The investment was provided by long-term shareholder and distinguished Nymox Board member James Robinson.
Dr. Paul Averback, CEO of Nymox said, “The Company has a number of important initiatives underway that will benefit greatly from this timely support. We are looking forward to providing further positive updates and reports at the appropriate times.”
Nymox is in the process of submitting applications for the approval to market the Company’s first in class drug NYMOZARFEX to treat the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH is one of the most common conditions affecting middle aged and elderly men throughout the world. BPH can be devastating to men who suffer from the condition. Current treatments are associated with numerous intolerable side effects including sexual problems, such as impotence and retrograde ejaculation. Medications for BPH have been associated with prostate cancer, depression, gynecomastia and other adverse effects. The majority of men stop taking the available medications due to these and other problems. Surgery is often needed for advanced BPH. Surgery is usually effective but it is not without risks, the discomforts of surgery, and BPH surgery has side effects such as permanent retrograde ejaculation for many patients.
Nymox recently reported 10-year follow-up new data on all available patients from its U.S. clinical trial of NYMOZARFEX (TM) for the treatment of low grade localized prostate cancer. The available long-term data newly assessed, confirmed that all available data shows that the NYMOZARFEX (TM) treatment had important and statistically significant benefit for reducing the long-term progression of these prostate cancers.
