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, today provided a clinical update and business outlook and released its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. “2021 is poised to be an exciting year for the company. Throughout the first quarter, we have made continued development and regulatory progress on all fronts and are committed to driving our novel treatments forward as expeditiously as possible with the primary focus on our Berubicin program to improve patient outcomes for GBM,” said John Climaco, CEO of CNS Pharmaceuticals. “We are looking forward to the near-term initiation of patient enrollment in our potentially pivotal trial, which we believe will be a catalytic event in the evolution of CNS Pharmaceuticals as it transitions us into a late-stage clinical company. We look forward to gaining additional insight into Berubicin’s potential to unlock powerful benefits in the fight against GBM, which remains as one of the most aggressive types of brain cancer. We believe there is significant potential to unlock shareholder value over the course of the next 18 months and we look forward to providing continued updates and driving momentum.”

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 the overall response rate of stable disease or better was 44%. 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 Feb. 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. During 2021, CNS expects to commence a Phase 2 clinical trial of Berubicin for the treatment of GBM in the U.S., 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. Its second drug candidate, WP1244, is a novel DNA binding agent that has shown in preclinical studies that it is 500 times more potent than the chemotherapeutic agent daunorubicin in inhibiting tumor cell proliferation.
