HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., March 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ: NYMX) is pleased to provide the latest update on the Company's regulatory filing preparation activities. The Company expects to file for approval for its first in class BPH treatment Fexapotide Triflutate, during the summer of this year. Management will provide a firm exact date for the filing in a subsequent disclosure. This communication of the exact date for the filing will be announced by the Company within the next 6 weeks. If there are any unexpected events that delay that announcement, the Company will provide immediate relevant updates.
Paul Averback MD, CEO of Nymox, said, "We are very pleased to be able to provide a clear guidance on dates at the above noted schedule within the next 6 weeks. We are grateful to our strong supporters who have understood that the process is not always conducive to fully predictable timelines. At this point however we are confident that we will be providing very specific details in that regard in the near future. Our product is capable of producing major improvements in men's health and it is remarkably safe and convenient to administer. We are working diligently toward the goal of making it available to men throughout the world."
Dr. Averback added, "The last major drug innovations for BPH (alpha blockers and 5-ARIs) were first introduced over 30 years ago. If our work was an easy task, others would have accomplished this decades ago."
