Prostate Rx Back on the Road to Approval
The frequent nighttime bathroom trips and other symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate can be a nuisance for many men. But an experimental new drug may soon be here to help. I'm Shelby Cullinan with your latest health news. Biopharmaceutical company Sophiris Bio Inc. Announced that its sole drug in development, PRX302, has met its main goal of significantly improving benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) symptoms in a late-stage clinical trial. This announcement comes nearly one year after the company's interim analysis suggested the drug would fail. However, the drug did not achieve its secondary goal of significantly improving the flow of urine in these men.
The lead study author said that replicating the results of the trial in another late-stage trial may be enough evidence of PRX302's value to apply for marketing approval from the US FDA. According to the National Institutes of Health, BPH is an extremely common condition. So common, in fact, that it's estimated that all men will develop an enlarged prostate if they live long enough.
