Clinical Data From Nymox BPH Drug To Be Presented at American,Urological Association Meeting

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 3, 2007 - Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ: NYMX) today announced that further clinical results from the Company's studies of NX-1207 for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) will be presented at the New England Section of the American Urological Association Meeting in Boston in September. The paper is authored by leading clinical research investigators from U.S. clinical trials of NX-107.

The Company previously completed three U.S. trials for NX-1207, including most recently a Phase 2 double-blind, placebo controlled, randomized multi-site U.S. study, which showed positive efficacy and safety results for NX-1207 after 3 months in patients with BPH. Overall, patients treated with NX-1207 showed after 3 months a mean improvement of 9.35 points in AUA Symptom Score values, the standard scale used to evaluate BPH drugs and treatments. This improvement compares favorably to the 3.5 to 5 point reported in published studies of currently approved drugs for BPH and reached statistical significance when compared to placebo. Subjects treated with NX-1207 also showed an overall statistically significant reduction in mean prostate volume. The results of the trial demonstrated the excellent safety and side effect profile of NX-1207. Subjects treated with NX-1207 had no serious side effects. In particular, patients given NX-1207 had no (0%) significant sexual side effects.

The company also recently reported positive long-term outcome results from an 8-19 month study of 116 unselected subjects from 26 U.S. clinical sites in a blinded placebo-controlled study, which reached statistical significance (p=.028). In that study, overall without further NX-1207 treatment, patients initially treated with NX-1207 showed a total pooled mean improvement of 7.4 points in the primary outcome endpoint of AUA Symptom Score values.

The AUA Symptom Score is a standardized measur ement of BPH symptoms and includes data on 1) sensations of incomplete emptying of the bladder; 2) need to urinate frequently; 3) stopping and starting during urination; 4) urgent need to urinate; 5) weakness of urinary stream; 6) need to push or strain during urination; and 7) urination during sleep (nocturia). Published studies of currently approved drugs for BPH show AUA Symptom Score improvement in the 3.5 to 5 point range.

BPH afflicts approximately half of men over age 50 and close to 90% of men by age 80. The disorder causes difficulties with urination associated with aging, such as urination at night, urge to void frequently, hesitancy, weak stream, and other problems.
