CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP), a biopharmaceutical innovator, is currently conducting a potentially pivotal global phase 2 clinical trial in humans to test the effectiveness of its anti-glioblastoma (“GBM”) drug candidate – Berubicin. Testing of Berubicin resulted in a notable success with evidence of improved survival among a dozen safety trial participants recruited by the drug’s original developer over 15 years ago. In its annual stockholder meeting, the company also provided an update for its secondary drug portfolio WP1244. The anthracycline-based substance, being evaluated for the treatment of brain cancers, ovarian and lymphomas, “has produced a new derivative as WP1874 with enhanced solubility compared to WP1244,” a recent article reads. “‘Going forward, WP1874 will be the primary focus in our development efforts of the WP1244 portfolio,’ the company stated… CNS anticipates filing for Investigational New Drug (‘IND’) recognition for WP1874 in the coming year. Berubicin has already been granted Fast Track and Orphan Drug designations by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (‘FDA’).”
