Nymox Announces NX-1207 Data to Be Presented at Upcoming U.S.,Urology Meetings

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 21, 2007 - Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ: NYMX) today announced that detailed results from the Company's recently completed studies of NX-1207 for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) will be presented at a series of upcoming U.S. urology meetings, beginning in September at the South Central American Urological Association Meeting in Colorado Springs. These independent podium presentations will be given by leading clinical research urologist principal investigators from the clinical trials. Further specific details on the upcoming presentations will be announced at a later date.

The Company has completed a series of studies of the safety and efficacy of NX-1207 for BPH, including two Phase 1-2 studies and a Phase 2 study as well as several follow-up studies of patients for up to 3 1/2 years after NX-1207 treatment. The Company's recently completed prospective randomized placebo controlled Phase 2 U.S. study confirmed the positive efficacy and safety results for NX-1207 from earlier studies. After 3 months, patients treated with NX-1207 had a mean improvement of 9.35 points in AUA Symptom Score values, the standard scale used to evaluate BPH drugs and treatments. This improvement was significantly greater than the 3.5 to 5 points typically reported for currently approved drugs for BPH. The results of the trial demonstrated the excellent safety and side effect profile of NX-1207. In particular, patients given NX-1207 had no (0%) significant sexual side effects. Follow-up studies have provided data showing that NX-1207 can provide enduring benefits of up to 42 months or more following treatment.

The AUA Symptom Score is a standardized and widely accepted questionnaire used to assess the severity of BPH symptoms and the efficacy of treatments for BPH. The AUA Score consists of seven questions relating to frequency of problems with urination such as urgen cy, starting and stopping, straining, poor flow rate, incomplete emptying of the bladder and getting up at night to urinate (nocturia). The patient scores the frequency of each problem on a scale of 0 (not at all) to 5 (almost always). The resulting AUA Symptom Score ranges from 0 points (no symptoms) to 35 points (severe). A score of 8 points or more indicates moderate to severe symptoms warranting consideration of treatment options.

BPH is a common disorder of older men, afflicting 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.
