CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers in the brain and central nervous system (“CNS”), today announced the dosing of the first patients in its Berubicin clinical development program for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), one of the most aggressive types of brain cancer. According to the update, further patient enrollment, randomization and dosing is currently underway as well as a robust lineup of globally located clinical sites, which are advancing toward activation and enrollment. “As one of the most aggressive, deadly and treatment-resistant cancers that forms in the brain where current standard of care remains ineffective in ~60% of patients, the treatment landscape for GBM is in desperate need of a better treatment option. We continue to be encouraged by the data seen from Berubicin to date and are excited to now have patient dosing underway in this potentially pivotal trial. Our team is committed to expeditiously advancing the study and looks forward to further understanding the full potential of Berubicin to offer improvement and overall survival in this devastating disease,” said Erin Dunbar, M.D., founding physician of the Brain Tumor Center and director of neuro-oncology at Piedmont Atlanta Hospital, and principal investigator for the study.

About CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc.
CNS Pharmaceuticals is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing a pipeline of anti-cancer drug candidates for the treatment of primary and metastatic cancers of the brain and central nervous system. The company’s lead drug candidate, Berubicin, is a novel anthracycline and the first anthracycline to appear to cross the blood-brain barrier. Berubicin is currently in development for the treatment of a number of serious brain and CNS oncology indications including glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer. Additionally, the company is advancing the development of its WP1244 drug technology, which utilizes anthracycline and distamycin-based scaffolds to create small molecule agents and is believed to be 500x more potent than daunorubicin in inhibiting tumor cell proliferation. Preclinical studies of WP1244 demonstrated high uptake in the brain with antitumor activity. CNS Pharmaceuticals is evaluating the use of WP1244 in the treatment of brain cancers, pancreatic, ovarian, and lymphomas. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.CNSPharma.com.
