Panel says more data is required for the approval, including post-mortem verification and clarification of how to use the test results.Maywood”s Nymox Pharmaceutical (Nasdaq: NYMX) announced Monday that on Friday, July 15, an FDA advisory panel voted 5-2 against approval of the kit form of the company”s NTP test (AlzheimAlert).
However, AlzheimAlert is approved for sale in the U.S. as a laboratory testing service through the company”s clinical reference laboratory in New Jersey.
“We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to present the results of the blinded nine-center trial which showed that 89.5% of clinical cases of probable AD had elevated NTP and 91% of definite non-AD had normal NTP levels,” said Paul Averback, CEO of Nymox.
“The panel, however, felt that more data was required for approval, including, for example, post-mortem verification and clarification of how to use the test results.
