CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP) is an oncology drug development company specializing in developing anti-cancer drugs for the treatment of primary and metastatic brain and central nervous system cancer. “The first half of fiscal 2022 saw the company make a number of clinical and operational advancements in its pursuit of treatment for glioblastoma multiforme (‘GBM’), according to CNS Pharmaceuticals CEO John Climaco. The company’s focus and priorities, Climaco emphasized, are firmly anchored in the advancement of its clinical development for its drug candidate Berubicin with the aim of bringing meaningful treatment to GBM patients. And as he separately told attendees at the recently held H.C. Wainwright 24th Annual Global Investment Conference, this focus is driven by a significant unmet need, especially given that recurrent GBM does not have ‘an approved therapy anywhere in the world,’” a recent article reads. “With the survival rate and mortality statistics for GBM remaining virtually unchanged for decades, according to the National Brain Tumor Society, CNS Pharmaceuticals is working hard to find a solution. The company is relying on Berubicin, a novel anthracycline whose mechanism of action is inhibiting the topoisomerase II enzyme that causes cell replication and is abundantly found in tumor cells. CNS Pharmaceuticals has observed that the drug, which appears, based on limited clinical data, to cross the blood-brain barrier, is selectively absorbed in cancerous cells and tissue in the brain.”

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