CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP) recently reported that 67 patients have enrolled in the potentially pivotal phase 2 globally cited clinical study comparing drug candidate Berubicin’s effectiveness to second-line standard-of-care chemotherapy drug Lomustine. “The company plans to have more than 200 patients participate in the clinical trial on a 2:1 randomization schema between those receiving Berubicin and those receiving Lomustine… Berubicin’s performance in an initial safety trial conducted by another company in 2006 resulted in apparent life extension for some patients and complete remission for one patient who, unusually, survives nearly 17 years later. The ongoing study now seeks to demonstrate overall survivability of GBM patients using Berubicin, established by a decrease in the size of the tumor, arrested development of the tumor’s size once the patient is put on study, and / or a favorable change in the time to progression of the tumors,” a recent article reads. “Although data are still early, we are pleased with these results in terms of recruiting a balanced patient population to compare Berubicin to Lomustine in the treatment of GBM, which may highlight Berubicin’s potential to provide a better therapeutic option for patients after first-line therapy for their disease,” CNS Pharmaceuticals CEO John Climaco is quoted saying.
