cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED About Us CNS is a biotechnology company developing novel anticancer drug candidates for the treatment of primary and metastatic brain and central nervous system tumors ● Our lead drug candidate, Berubicin, was developed at the MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC) , world’s largest cancer research facility ● Berubicin demonstrated the ability to effect a durable complete response* in a Phase 1 human trial of Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). ● We have a Collaboration and Asset Purchase A greement with Reata Pharmaceuticals , $2 billion market cap Nasdaq company ● A significant amount of private capital and grants have been invested in our lead drug *a Durable Complete Response refers to the absence of cancer detectible by MRI
cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED Value Drivers x We have receiv ed Pre - IND guidance from FDA that our proposed Phase 2 clinical trial plan is reasonable. x Berubicin is poised for Phase 2 clinical trial for treatment of Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) ● Currently preparing IND for filing by 12.31.19 ● Nearly $3 million of clinical drug supply on - hand and ready for immediate trial use per FDA guidance ● Potential for accelerated approval pathway due to desperate unmet clinical need x Berubicin was designated as an Orphan Drug when owned by Reata
cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) There are NO approved curative treatment options for GBM. ● Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is one of the most aggressive and common primary brain cancer in adults. It is highly invasive, malignant, and virtually incurable . ● Nearly 15,000 new GBM patients are diagnosed each year in the US (National Cancer Institute 2015). ● With optimal therapy (surgical resection, radiation, and chemotherapy) patients have a median survival of approximately 15 - 23 months . Nearly 100% of GBM tumors recur after 1st line therapy. ● Access to the best care means nothing : US Senators McCain and Kennedy both died from Glioblastoma within months of diagnosis. ● Decades of research = survival outcomes unchanged.
cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED CNS Lead Drug Candidate: Berubicin ● Berubicin is a novel drug candidate for the treatment of GBM ● 44% of GBM patients enrolled in Phase 1 trial showed a clinically significant response to Berubicin ● One GBM patient from Phase 1 remains cancer - free 10 years after treatment with Berubicin. ● Berubicin has shown evidence of improved Overall Survival beyond median survival rate of only 14.6 months from diagnosis. ● Based on limited clinical data, Berubicin is the first anthracycline that appears to cross the blood brain barrier (BBB) in the adult brain. ● Berubicin has been in pre - clinical and human clinical development for over 15 years.
cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED A Complete Response in Berubicin Phase 1 Clinical Trial A “complete response” to treatment means NO SIGNS OF CANCER are visible on MRI*. *This does not always mean the cancer is cured.

cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED FDA states CNS may plan to use its existing Berubicin supply in a Phase 2 trial ✓ CNS obtained approximately 110g of Berubicin from Reata, a quantity sufficient to conduct the planned 60 - patient Phase 2 Clinical Trial. ✓ Manufacturing anthracyclines is time consuming , costly and difficult . ✓ This quantity of Berubicin would require at least 10 months to manufacture at significant cost. ✓ Having Berubicin available significantly de - risks CNS’ operations. ✓ On May 1, 2019 FDA notified CNS that “its planned use of lyophilized drug product [following reprocessing by recrystallization] in the proposed Phase II clinical trial appears to be reasonable” thus clearing the way the Company to use its existing drug supply.
cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED $6M Funding & Clinical Development Partnership CNS entered into a funding and development partnership with WPD Pharmaceuticals, a Polish company affiliated with our founder. ● The Company granted WPD a sub - license to Berubicin for certain Eastern European territories ● In exchange WPD agreed to spend a minimum of $2M on the development of Berubicin plus pay the Company a royalty on sales. ● In January 2019 WPD was awarded a $6M EU development grant to execute two clinical trials of Berubicin in adults and children. ● The pediatric trial will be the first to test Berubicin in children ● This grant significantly expands the Company’s capacity to investigate Berubicin while minimizing equity dilution.
cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED Blood Brain Barrier ● The Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) is a layer of specialized endothelial cells providing the brain active and passive defense against disease - causing pathogens and toxins. ● T he same features of the BBB that protect the brain also prevent the vast majority of potential brain cancer drug treatments from reaching the brain and GBM tumor cells. ● Designing a drug for the treatment of brain cancer necessarily means means designing a mechanism to overcome the BBB. ● Berubicin was specifically designed to bypass the BBB
cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED Anthracyclines Based on limited clinical data, Berubicin is the first anthracycline that appears to cross the BBB in adults and reach tumor cells in brain cancer patients. ● As a class of drugs, Anthracyclines are among the most effective anti - cancer agents ever developed. ● According to academic literature, Anthracyclines have demonstrated anti - tumor activity in a wide range of cancers including breast, stomach, uterine, ovarian, bladder, lung and hematological malignancies. ● Where effective, Anthracyclines are generally considered to be preferred first - line therapeutics ● Anthracyclines have never been shown to cross the blood brain barrier (BBB) in the adult brain and treat deadly brain cancers, until Berubicin.
cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED Berubicin The treatment of GBM with Berubicin is a n ovel use for Anthracyclines, a tried and true drug class. Berubicin was developed to be an Organ Targeted Therapeutic in a multi - step functional analytic process: 1. Design and synthesis of topoisomerase II inhibitors using modular approach to DNA binding agents. 2. Identification of agents circumventing ABC - transporters (P - gp and MRP1)(BBB) mediated efflux in cell - based assay. 3. Assessment of the in vitro activity of selected compounds in brain tumor cell lines. 4. Determination of brain uptake of the most potent agent and anti - tumor activity in vivo in brain tumor model.

cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED Primary and Refractory Market Opportunities With no other curative options available, we believe Berubicin may have the potential to become standard of care for GBM and other brain cancers. ● Nearly all of the 40% of patients genetically predisposed to respond to Temozolomide (TMZ), the current standard of care, may become quickly become resistant. ● We believe Berubicin could be used as a 2nd line drug treatment for these patients. ● In the remaining 60% of the patients, TMZ may be entirely ineffective. ● We believe Berubicin could be used as a primary drug treatment for these patients. ● Limited preclinical d ata appears to show that Berubicin may be more effective than doxorubicin in tumors that depend for their proliferation on topoisomerase II. ● This may create a unique opportunity to develop Berubicin for pancreatic and ovarian cancers and lymphomas.

cnspharma.com CONFIDENTIAL – NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED The toxicity profile of berubicin is consistent with that of other anthracyclines with myelosuppression (lymphopenia, leukopenia, and neutropenia) emerging as the DLT. The MTD of WP744 dosed for the first three days of a 21 - day cycle has been determined as 7.5 mg/m2. Berubicin exhibits dose - proportional clinical pharmacokinetics within the range of doses tested, and drug accumulation has been observed with the QD x 3 regimen. Exposures of > 800 ng/ml*hr appear to be associated with higher toxicities; 2 of 7 patients with DLT at 9.6 mg/m2/day had a systemic exposure at or > than 800 in the QD x 3 regimen. The results from a once weekly X 4 schedule, which may reduce myelosuppression allowing for increases in dose intensity over the treatment course, is being first reported here. Collection of the toxicity and efficacy data from this cohort will be ongoing. Berubicin (WP744) has demonstrated in a Phase 1 clinical trial single agent activity in patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). In particular, this agent has produced a complete response, which is very rare in this patient population, and even more rare in Phase I trials. Conclusions
