BioMedNewsBreaks – CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP) Continues Priority to Advance Clinical Development Program for Berubicin

August 23, 2022 12:28:39

CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP) is focused on advancing its clinical program for treating glioblastoma (“GBM”), a brain cancer that has no present cure and few treatment options for patients. The most aggressive primary brain tumor, GBM affects approximately 13,000 new patients each year in the United States with an average survival time of less than one year post diagnosis. “The company’s lead drug candidate is a novel anthracycline named Berubicin that has set itself apart from other potential therapies because of its apparent ability to cross the blood-brain barrier with central nervous system uptake,” reads a recent article. “CNS Pharmaceuticals is conducting a potentially pivotal global phase 2 clinical trial to measure Berubicin’s potential to match or exceed the effectiveness of Lomustine, a standard-of-care chemotherapy agent used in the treatment of GBM patients as the tumor progresses. Patients are being enrolled at 19 sites thus far, with 42 more anticipated across the United States, Italy, France, Spain and Switzerland now that European regulatory approvals have been granted. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (‘FDA’) has granted ‘fast-track’ and ‘orphan drug’ status to Berubicin, demonstrating the value of CNS’s initial successes in opening regulatory pathways for the drug’s market priority if it can continue to show success in its trial stage.”

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 (“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
