Cereno Scientific releases Insights video season 2 episode 1 with Prof. Benza
Cereno Scientific (Nasdaq First North: CRNO B), a company developing innovative treatments for common and rare cardiovascular disease, today announced that episode 1 of season 2 in the Insights Video Series is released. The video highlights the remarkable patient case data from the ongoing Phase II study of CS1 presented earlier this summer. Participating in the video is Prof. Raymond L. Benza, System Director of Pulmonary Hypertension at Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine, New York City, Principal Investigator of the Phase II study of CS1, and member of Cereno's Scientific Advisory Board.

Cereno's Phase II study of CS1 in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is currently ongoing. The patient case study referred to in the video was investigator-initiated and performed earlier this summer on the first patient having completed the study at the clinic the investigator was based. The remarkable data shown prompted a data quality control initiative to be launched with the aim of optimizing the possibility of seeing effects of CS1 as measured by the CardioMEMS technology used in the study. The result of this initiative is expected to be communicated in Q4 2023. The top-line result of the Phase II study is estimated to be reported in Q1 2024.
The Insights Series is conducted as a series of interviews and conversations with internationally renowned scientific experts, who share their knowledge and insights to provide a greater understanding of the company's intensified focus on further developing the product portfolio. Season 2 of the video series was recorded at the ESC Congress in August 2023.
The video series is available on Cereno's website (http://www.cerenoscientific.com/), LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/company/cereno-scientific-ab) and YouTube (https://youtube.com/@cerenoscientific?si=bu_nDazbJ-vQKkrU).

About Cereno Scientific AB
Cereno Scientific is a clinical-stage biotech company within cardiovascular diseases. The lead drug candidate, CS1, is a Phase II candidate in development for the treatment of the rare disease pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). CS1 is an HDAC (histone deacetylase) inhibitor that acts as an epigenetic modulator with pressure-reducing, reverse-remodeling, anti-inflammatory, anti-fibrotic and anti-thrombotic properties, all relevant for PAH. A clinical Phase II study is ongoing to evaluate CS1's safety, tolerability, and efficacy in patients with PAH. A collaboration agreement with global healthcare company Abbott allows Cereno to use their cutting-edge technology CardioMEMS HF System in the study. Cereno also has two promising preclinical drug candidates in development for cardiovascular disease through research collaborations with the University of Michigan. Drug candidate CS014 is a novel HDAC inhibitor with epigenetic effects, selected for prevention of thrombosis as target indication. In preclinical studies, it has been documented to regulate platelet activity, ﬁbrinolysis and clot stability for prevention of thrombosis without increased risk of bleeding. Thrombosis prevention in venous or arterial and cardiovascular disease has been selected as the first indication area for CS014. Drug candidate CS585 is a prostacyclin receptor agonist that has been documented in preclinical studies to target the IP receptor for prevention of thrombosis without increased risk of bleeding. The company is headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, and has a US subsidiary Cereno Scientific Inc. based in Kendall Square in Boston, Massachusetts, US. Cereno is listed on the Nasdaq First North (CRNO B). More information on www.cerenoscientific.com.
