CNS Pharmaceuticals’ (NASDAQ: CNSP) novel anthracycline Berubicin, which has been developed to treat diseases with unmet need such as the deadly glioblastoma (“GBM”), appears to be the first anthracycline chemotherapy agent to successfully cross the blood-brain barrier in targeting tumors of the central nervous system. “Berubicin was the drug candidate subject of a small-scale phase 1 clinical trial in 2006 that evaluated its safety, which was notable because one of the two dozen evaluated patients emerged cancer-free and has remained so over the subsequent 16 years. Nearly half of the trial’s patients experienced a statistically significant improvement in clinical benefit. GBM patients, in general, have a median survival rate of only 14.6 months after diagnosis, which is evidence of the need for an effective treatment for the thus-far incurable cancer,” a recent article reads. “Anthracyclines like Berubicin are among the most powerful chemotherapy drugs and are effective against more types of cancer than any other class of chemotherapeutic agents, according to the company. They are designed to utilize natural processes to cause deoxyribonucleic acid (‘DNA’) damage in targeted cancer cells by interfering with the action of cell-growth enzyme topoisomerase II.”

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 www.CNSPharma.com.
