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, has provided an update on enrollment of its ongoing trial evaluating Berubicin for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer. Berubicin is a novel anthracycline and the first anthracycline to appear to cross the blood-brain barrier. The company announced that the first patient in Europe has been enrolled in the study and has started receiving dosages. Eventually the company plans to have 68 sites opened for the ongoing potentially pivotal global trial; currently 29 clinical sites have been identified in the United States, Italy, France, Spain and Switzerland. According to the announcement, a preplanned, nonbinding futility analysis will be performed after an estimated 30% to 50% of all planned patients have completed the primary endpoint at six months. “Our team has worked tirelessly to expand the presence of our clinical trial for Berubicin on a global scale,” said CNS Pharmaceuticals CEO John Climaco in the press release. “To have enrolled and dosed our first patient in France shortly after the opening the site is a noteworthy accomplishment and a testament to our team’s dedication to drive the program forward. I am pleased with the progress made and remain committed to building on this momentum. We expect to enroll and dose additional patients across our clinical trial sites in Europe and advance toward the much-anticipated inflection point which is the interim analysis.”

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.

Additionally, CNS Pharmaceuticals is advancing the development of its WP1244 drug technology portfolio, which utilizes anthracycline and distamycin-based scaffolds to create small molecule agents and is believed to be 500 times more potent than daunorubicin in inhibiting tumor cell proliferation.
