CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP) is a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain and central nervous system. Over recent months, the company has achieved several milestones demonstrating its operational, financial and strategic strengths and continuous de-risking of its lead candidate Berubicin clinical program. “The company has begun a pivotal Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of Berubicin for recurrent adult glioblastoma multiforme (‘GBM’). Enrollment in the clinical trial is already underway, with patient dosing set to begin in Q3 2021,” reports an article discussing the status of the study to treat GBM, an aggressive type of brain cancer with most treatments only slowing progression and reducing symptoms. “Berubicin is a novel therapy for GBM and the first anthracycline to cross the blood-brain barrier and kill cancerous tumor cells in humans. The Phase 1 safety trial for Berubicin was conducted by another company 14 years ago. Since then, one patient has lived cancer-free, with two others seeing a reduction in tumor size by up to 80%. . . . With the serious unmet medical need for new GBM treatments, CNS Pharmaceuticals applied for and was granted FDA Fast Track Designation for Berubicin. According to CNS Pharmaceuticals CEO John Climaco, receiving Fast Track Designation is a major achievement for the advancement of Berubicin for the treatment of the most aggressive, deadly and treatment-resistant type of brain cancer. ‘Patients have almost no meaningful options and thousands lose their fight against this terrible cancer every year. With this designation, we now have an accelerated pathway to approval for Berubicin and a clear opportunity to more expediently bring this potentially impactful investigational therapy to individuals battling this challenging disease,’ he explained.”

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.
