CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP), a preclinical stage biotechnology company specializing in developing novel treatments for brain tumors, has focused on its lead drug candidate, Berubicin, to potentially treat glioblastoma (“GBM”). “CNS has since made significant headway, even receiving FDA Fast Track Designation, which now offers it an accelerated path to approval for Berubicin. ‘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,’ noted CNS CEO John Climaco. GBM’s median survival from initial diagnosis is less than 15 months, with a 2-year survival rate of 26-44%. Globally, it affects 5 out of 100,000 people, making it the most common and devastating primary malignant brain tumor affecting adults,” a recent article reads. “CNS hopes its research will offer a solution to the millions of people currently dealing with GBM globally. Given how much promise Berubicin has shown, its management is optimistic that with additional studies, it will get to offer a much-needed treatment option for the condition.”

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 (“GBM”), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer. Additionally, the company 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 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.
