CNS enters into sublicense agreement with WPD for Berubicin
CNS Pharmaceuticals entered into a sublicense agreement with WPD Pharmaceuticals, a Polish corporation partially owned and controlled by Dr. Waldemar Priebe, the founder of the Company. The agreement grants WPD patent rights to research and develop, and manufacture or sell Berubicin in a limited territory comprised mainly of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. The Company is entitled to a 1% royalty on all commercial sales of Berubicin in these licensed territories. As part of the agreement, WPD committed to a $2.0M minimum expenditure on the development, testing, regulatory approval, and commercialization of Berubicin during the three year term of the agreement, which ends in August 2021. WPD plans to implement a multicenter pediatric Phase I clinical trial to determine maximum tolerated dose, and to determine the efficacy of Berubicin in Phase IB and II clinical trials in adults. WPD also plans to conduct preclinical tests to determine the prospective use of Berubicin with temozolomide and with other compounds as anticancer drugs.
