(NASDAQ: CNSP) ("CNS" or the "Company"), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain and central nervous system, today highlighted a new segment of "Behind the Mystery" focused on glioblastoma from The Balancing Act airing on Lifetime TV.

A re-airing of the segment is planned for October 23, 2020.
"It is encouraging to see the Balancing Act feature bring awareness to such a devastating disease.

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, has been studied in a completed Phase 1 clinical trial in malignant brain tumors. By the end of 2020, CNS expects to commence a Phase 2 clinical trial of berubicin for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (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.
