CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP) chairman and CEO John Climaco was featured on a recent C3 Chat Show Podcast. The podcast, hosted by Sid Vaidya and Eric Gershey, explores topics related to entrepreneurship, life experiences and best practices. During his interview, Climaco shared the history of CNS Pharmaceuticals and provided an update on the company’s recent business progress, including the fact that the company recently received FDA approval to begin clinical trials studying the company’s lead drug candidate, Berubicin. CNSP is developing Berubicin as a potential treatment for glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive form of brain cancer currently considered incurable. Climaco called Berubicin a “powerhouse compound” and said the FDA approval was a big day for GBM patients, which is a population that has seen little innovation for the past 15 years. “This is the biggest news we’ve announced since our IPO back in November 2019,” Climaco said in the press release. “The FDA approved an Investigational New Drug application, which allows us to proceed with our clinical trial. Based on that IND approval, we expect, in the next 90 to 120 days, we will go from zero active clinical trials today to three active clinical trials for our lead compound, Berubicin, which is a novel treatment for glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive form of primary brain cancer. . . . If you get GBM, the sad reality is you’re probably going to die from it. We think we can change that game.”

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 that it is 500 times more potent than the chemotherapeutic agent daunorubicin in inhibiting tumor cell proliferation.
