CNS' lead product candidate, Berubicin, is a novel anthracycline and the first anthracycline to cross the blood-brain barrier. It is in development for the treatment of a number of serious brain and CNS oncology indications. The Company intends to enroll approximately 210 subjects across 35 clinical sites in the U.S. and also plans to expand the trial into western Europe.

"We are delighted to begin patient enrollment and screening in this potentially pivotal trial that will provide greater insight into the potential of Berubicin to improve patient outcomes in the treatment of GBM. This represents an important milestone for our pivotal program," commented John Climaco, CEO of CNS Pharmaceuticals. "I would like to thank our clinical team for their commitment and drive to advance this important development program."

"There remains a critical unmet need in the treatment landscape for glioblastoma. The data seen to date from Berubicin is encouraging as a potential treatment option in this devastating disease.
