“Our primary focus continues to be on advancing the clinical development of Berubicin as a potential treatment option for this devastating disease. Over the course of this year, we have worked diligently to expand patient eligibility for our potentially pivotal trial and bolster our international presence now realized with the activation of the first two European clinical trial sites,” John Climaco, CEO of CNS Pharmaceuticals, stated in the news release. “This is a true testament to our team’s commitment to and the execution of this important clinical program.”
Berubicin is a novel anthracycline and the first anthracycline to appear to cross the blood-brain barrier. Berubicin is currently being evaluated in a potentially pivotal global study evaluating its efficacy and safety in the treatment of GBM. The potentially pivotal trial is an adaptive, multicenter, open-label, randomized and controlled study in adult patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (WHO Grade IV1) after failure of standard first-line therapy. The primary endpoint of the study is Overall Survival (OS), which is a rigorous endpoint that the FDA has recognized as a basis for approval of oncology drugs when a statistically significant improvement can be shown relative to a randomized control arm. Results from the trial will compare Berubicin to a current standard of care (Lomustine), with a 2 to 1 randomization of patients to receive either Berubicin or Lomustine.
“We are grateful for the tremendous support from the clinical staff and remain dedicated to driving patient enrollment as quickly and efficiently as possible. We look forward to continuing to build momentum and bringing Berubicin across the finish line to unlock its greatest potential. As long as the unmet medical need in GBM remains, we will continue our fight in earnest to bring hope to patients and families globally,” Climaco added.
As detailed in the news release, the FDA has granted CNS Pharmaceuticals Fast Track Designation for Berubicin, which enables more frequent interactions with them to provide guidance on expediting the development and review process. Additionally, the company has also received Orphan Drug Designation from the FDA, which may provide seven years of marketing exclusivity upon approval of an NDA.
