We have said time and again that our number one priority is the advancement of this potentially pivotal study. This is evidenced by our continuous dedication to driving enrollment and bringing global clinical sites on line,” said John Climaco, CEO of CNS Pharmaceuticals. “We are grateful to the French Competent Authority and Ethics Committee and their positive feedback on what we believe is an incredibly important clinical program. Across the globe there is an urgent need for GBM treatment options. We will continue to press on in our efforts to advance Berubicin through the clinic and importantly, to patients and their families. I am proud of the progress our team has made to-date and believe there are additional clinical sites to join those that have already been added to this global potentially pivotal study.”

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 WP1244 in the treatment of brain cancers, pancreatic, ovarian, and lymphomas. For more information, visit the company’s website at
