CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain and central nervous system, is advancing its leading drug candidate, Berubicin, to move forward with clinical trials in Poland. This move comes after sub-licensee WPD Pharmaceuticals Inc. has identified a contract research organization — Worldwide Clinical Trials — to coordinate and supervise Phase 1 and Phase 2 trials in the European country (http://ibn.fm/iFYph). A recent article discussing this reads, “Berubicin is proposed for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (‘GBM’), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer. Berubicin also has potential to treat other central nervous system malignancies. In Poland, WPD will conduct the first-ever Phase 1 trial in pediatric GMB patients and an adult Phase 2 trial. Sixty percent of the program will be funded by WPD via a $6 million reimbursement grant from the EU/Polish National Center for Research and Development.”

About CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc.
CNS Pharmaceuticals is developing novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain and central nervous system. Its lead drug candidate, Berubicin, is proposed for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer. CNS holds a worldwide exclusive license to the Berubicin chemical compound and has acquired all data and know-how from Reata Pharmaceuticals Inc. related to a completed Phase 1 clinical trial with Berubicin in malignant brain tumors, which Reata conducted in 2006. In this trial, 44% of patients experienced a statistically significant improvement in clinical benefit. This 44% disease control rate was based on 11 patients (out of 25 evaluable patients) with stable disease, plus responders. One patient experienced a durable complete response and remains cancer-free as of February 20, 2020. These Phase 1 results represent a limited patient sample size and, while promising, are not a guarantee that similar results will be achieved in subsequent trials. By the end of 2020, CNS expects to commence a Phase 2 clinical trial of Berubicin for the treatment of GBM in the United States, while a sub-licensee partner undertakes a Phase 2 trial in adults and a first-ever Phase 1 trial in pediatric GBM patients in Poland. The company’s second drug candidate, WP1244, is a novel DNA binding agent that has shown in preclinical studies to be 500 times more potent than the chemotherapeutic agent daunorubicin in inhibiting tumor cell proliferation.
