BioMedNewsBreaks – CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc.’s (NASDAQ: CNSP) Berubicin to Demonstrate Effectiveness vs. Established Chemotherapy Drug in Phase 2 Trial

April 8, 2021 13:22:14

CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP) continues to aggressively pursue FDA approval for its lead drug candidate, Berubicin. The novel candidate is the first anthracycline that appears to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier to combat tumors — stepping up its cancer-fighting potential. Berubicin was the subject of a Phase 1 safety trial conducted by Reata Pharmaceuticals approximately 15 years ago. One of the trial participants has remained alive and cancer-free as of the most recent evaluation late last year, while two other patients in the small study saw reductions of greater than 25% (one being an 80% reduction) in the size of their tumors. CNS Pharmaceuticals is advancing the development of Berubicin for potential commercialization in treating glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), a type of brain cancer that is nearly 100% fatal in one year after diagnosis. The company has progressed its plans for a world-spanning Phase 2 trial comparing Berubicin’s response to the effectiveness of established chemotherapy drug lomustine in 243 GBM patients. “The participants for the Phase 2 study will be adult GBM patients with recurrent disease (Grade IV, as measured by the World Health Organization) after the failure of standard first-line therapy,” reads a recent article on the new trial. “The primary endpoint of the study is to demonstrate overall survival, ‘a rigorous endpoint the FDA recognizes when a statistically significant improvement can be shown relative to a randomized control arm,’ the company states.”
