HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., June 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (Nasdaq:NYMX) is pleased to announce that it has recently completed financing for a total of $850,000 at prices of $1.25-$1.66.

The Company's lead product NX-1207 is in Phase 3 development for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Nymox recently announced that the Company is conducting Phase 3 NX-1207 BPH pivotal studies long-term follow-up extension data capture that is expected to be completed and results reported in late Q2 or early Q3 2015.
Nymox has also recently reported a successful Phase 2 long-term outcome study in 147 men of NX-1207 at higher dosage for low grade localized prostate cancer.
BPH is one of the most commonly diagnosed diseases in middle aged and older men. The condition has negative impacts on men's health and quality of life and often leads to need for surgery. It is estimated that 50% of men in their 50's have pathological signs of prostatic hyperplasia and one quarter to one half of men over 40 suffer from moderate to severe urinary symptoms associated with BPH.
The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2012 more than 240,000 men in the United States will be newly diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 28,000 men will die from the disease. Most cases are detected via prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening and usually found to have localized tumors. Surgical removal of the prostate (radical prostatectomy) and radiation therapy with or without androgen deprivation therapy are the most common active treatment options for localized prostate cancer but have significant short and long-term adverse effects, including impotence, urinary dysfunction, and other complications.
