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 released data from its ongoing trial evaluating Berubicin for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”). The data was presented at the annual meeting for the Society for Neuro-Oncology. Those results indicate that enrolled patients have comparable demographics, including age, gender, race, BSA and KPS; in addition, the percentage of patients continuing on study or having withdrawn is comparable between arms. “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,” said CNS Pharmaceuticals CEO John Climaco in the press release. “We remain steadfast in our efforts to drive patient enrollment across the U.S. and Europe and are making significant progress toward our planned interim analysis, which we expect to occur in mid-2023. Our team remains dedicated to moving this important program forward and to providing patients, families and physicians with a much needed treatment opportunity for this devastating disease. . . . It is a remarkable testament to both the design of our study and the magnitude of the unmet clinical need in this terrible disease that our study is enrolling at this rapid pace.”

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, 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 500 times 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 the WP1244 portfolio in the treatment of brain cancers, pancreatic, ovarian and lymphomas.
