NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tiziana Life Sciences Ltd
("Tiziana" or the "Company"), a biotechnology company enabling breakthrough immunotherapies via novel routes of drug delivery, announced today that Dr Kunwar Shailubhai, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Scientific Officer, will be presenting at the upcoming 2022 BIO CEO & Investor Conference
being held at the Marriott Marquis in NYC on February 14-15 and virtually through the 17th.
Management will be available for 1x1 investor meetings on February 14-15. Register here to request a meeting with management.
Tiziana is developing proprietary and novel formulation technologies to enable alternative routes of immunotherapy. Tiziana's lead programs are focused on developing the fully-human antibody, foralumab via varied modes of delivery, alone or in combination to address different therapeutic indications. Data from clinical and animal studies support the underlying hypothesis that nasally administered foralumab acts via site-targeted immunomodulation. This concept was further validated by clinical data from a recently completed study with nasally administered foralumab in COVID-19 patients.
Further, interim data from a clinical study in a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) also indicated that the treatment was not only well-tolerated, but it also produced clinical response after three months of treatment. Consequently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviewed the safety data and allowed continuation of dosing. Six-month treatment results in this patient will be reported in the first quarter of 2022.
A similar mechanism of site-targeted immunomodulation exists for orally administered foralumab for treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis. Recently, Tiziana submitted an amended Investigational Drug Application (IND) for a Phase 1b study evaluating safety and tolerability of orally administered foralumab in patients with mild-to-moderate Crohn's Disease. The study is expected to conclude in the fourth quarter of this year.
