Introduction: NX-1207 is an investigational prostate selective therapeutic protein drug for BPH which causes controlled atrophy of prostate tissue. NX-1207 2.5 mg is injected transrectally bilaterally into the transition zone. In 4 U.S. Phase 1-2 and Phase 2 studies NX-1207 efficacy measures reached statistical significance at 90 days. Subjects from these studies were assessed in blinded follow-up studies to determine long-term efficacy.
Methods: All available unselected subjects and controls were included. AUASI scores were measured at intervals of 7 years (Phase 1-2) and 3-5 years (Phase 2).
Results Obtained: Overall in separate followup studies at 3 to 7 years after a single dosage of NX-1207, 37 to 58% of subjects required no surgical treatments or medication for their BPH. After 7 years, 58% of available Phase 1-2 subjects had no drug or surgical treatment for their BPH and had a mean improvement of 11.7 points in their AUASI scores. All Phase 2 follow-up study efficacy Results reached statistical significance. There were no sexual side effects or significant adverse safety events attributable to study drug.
Conclusions: NX-1207 treatment offers an office based transrectal ultrasound guided injection procedure for the treatment of LUTS due to BPH. Follow-up Results after a single treatment indicate significant symptomatic improvement with an acceptable safety profile.
