results for the prostate enlargement drug fexapotide show ( NYMX ) : As a treatment for prostate cancer fexapotide was found to lead to highly statistically significant reduction in disease progression in a large 147 patient multi-year Phase 2 study of U.S. men with low grade cancer. Datanot only shows clinically meaningful and durable relief of BPH symptoms, but also shows a major reduction in the incidence of prostate cancer, compared to placebo and compared to the known and expected normal incidence of the disease. Datahas now also shown that the long-term blinded placebo crossover group study has resulted in an 82-95% reduction in the number of these patients who required surgery after they received crossover fexapotide in the trial, as compared to patients who did not receive fexapotide but instead received crossover conventional approved BPH treatments. The aim of the crossover study was to determine the clinical benefit fexapotide can provide to men who initially were double blind randomized to and received placebo, remained blinded as to their placebo treatment, and who subsequently required additional medical and/or surgical treatment. In this study long-term outcomes were determined in 391 patients who were given double blind placebo injections, which were followed by crossover to other treatments at the patients' discretion. The new data analysis from the Nymox fexapotide study has now shown the statistically significant and very low incidence of 1.3% for prostate cancer in this comparable fexapotide treated BPH population. By comparison, for example in a population of patients with erectile dysfunction treated with PDE5 inhibitor drugs after 4 years the rate of subsequent prostate cancer was 19.5% as recently reported in a large U.S.

A regular valuation process can serve as the capstone on an effective financial management system because it will keep management focused on the most important factor: value. First: At some point all businesses will need to put their value on a piece of paper; this could be to facilitate a change in equity structure or to meet a legal obligation.
