CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP) is currently recruiting patients for a phase II study evaluating the efficacy and safety of Berubicin, its lead drug candidate for treating glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), the most aggressive, deadly and treatment-resistant type of cancer that forms in the brain. Recently, the company announced that the FDA had approved an amendment to the study’s protocol, boosting its Berubicin clinical development program. “The amendment expands eligibility for its potentially pivotal study to patients who have received additional treatments as part of the first-line therapy,” explains a recent article. “The key objectives of the amendment, according to CNS Pharmaceuticals CEO John Climaco, were based on the feedback the company received from investigators as well as additional considerations of the needs of patients in the study. Additionally, it incorporated a recent World Health Organization (‘WHO’) classification of GBM that allows CNS to accurately position its program for success. Following the approval, the study will now include an additional group of patients who may have undergone multiple procedures as their initial treatment.”

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.
