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, recently appeared on Gamechangers LIVE, a podcast series that shines a spotlight on gamechangers in various industries, sharing perspective on journeys, mindsets, struggles and successes in an effort to inspire and inform listeners. During the interview, CNSP’s chairman and CEO, John Climaco, provided an overview of CNS Pharmaceuticals and its lead drug candidate, Berubicin. Proposed for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer, Berubicin was evaluated in a Phase I clinical trial. As a result of the trial, 44% of patients experienced a clinical benefit of stable disease or better, including one patient who experienced a durable complete response and remains cancer free 14 years after treatment. CNS recently submitted an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application with the FDA, and, pending approval, it intends to commence a pivotal Phase II clinical trial in the U.S. “I have done all kinds of different things in my career, been in the health care industry for a long time. This is the most exciting thing that I’ve done,” Climaco said in the interview. “This company and our lead product have the potential to really change the landscape and the game in an area of oncology that hasn’t seen a lot of hope for a very long time in glioblastoma.”

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. By the end of 2020, 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.
