BioMedNewsBreaks – CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP) Nears Dosing of Phase 2 Patients with Standout Anthracycline Therapy

June 2, 2021 12:40:27

CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP) is focused on producing a treatment that improves on the effectiveness of established chemotherapy drug lomustine in increasing overall survival rates of glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”) patients. GBM is an illness that is nearly 100% fatal in patients just over a year after diagnosis. CNS Pharmaceuticals’ lead drug candidate, Berubicin, has been granted investigational new drug (“IND”) status after promising findings. “Berubicin is a standout anthracycline therapy because of its novel apparent ability to cross the blood-brain barrier to combat neurological tumors. The drug was the subject of a Phase I trial some 15 years ago in which 44% of patients saw their disease stabilize or improve. One patient achieved cancer-free status that has resulted in length of survival currently far beyond standard expectations, with the most recent evaluation conducted in November 2020,” reads a recent article. “CNS recently announced it is beginning to enroll patients for its planned Phase 2 trial, so the first patient is likely to be dosed in the near term. The Phase 2 trial will compare Berubicin’s response to the effectiveness of lomustine in 243 GBM patients at about 35 clinical sites in the United States and an additional 25 sites across Europe and Asia Pacific.”
