Nymox Announces Updates in Regulatory Submissions For Fexapotide Treatment For Prostate Enlargement
HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., June 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ: NYMX) is very pleased to report that key steps in its regulatory submission preparations have been completed and the project is firmly on-track. The majority of its regulatory documentation has proceeded very well, despite the inherent limitations of the business environment in 2020. Certain tasks have been hampered by the Covid pandemic restrictions, similar to other companies in the sector. These remaining tasks are expected to be completed reasonably soon as the Company regains the ability to retrieve required documentation from external sites and to complete other required tasks and on-site activities that were hindered due to the global restrictions in place.
Dr. Paul Averback, CEO commented “We are extremely pleased with the progress we have been able to achieve despite these obvious limitations due to the pandemic restrictions as we reported in our 6K filing on April 24. I want to thank the whole team for putting in an extraordinary effort towards meeting our regulatory timeline goals. Extremely complex tasks have been coordinated and executed successfully. Given the ongoing reopening of the economy we now expect to attend to the remaining matters near-term. Taking into account the above factors, we are well within our projected timelines as corrected for by the addition of the previously announced Covid-related delay of several months. We are now expecting to file our applications with the authorities approximately by the end of Q3 or early Q4. We will continue to regularly update our shareholders as we complete the entire packages.”“Nymox management is very proud of the quality of our evidence and we not only look forward to the upcoming near-term submissions, but we are highly enthusiastic about the prospects for our Company and its shareholders. This is a field which has a substantial unmet medical need for safer and more effective treatments. The Company has achieved numerous major successes in the past couple years with its intellectual property applications around the world which have greatly extended the timeline value of the Company’s Fexapotide treatments for prostate enlargement and for prostate cancer”, Dr. Averback said.
