Company Background

Tiziana Life Sciences plc is a publicly-listed (NASDAQ: TLSA; AIM: TILS) biotechnology company.

  • Our mission is to design and deliver next generation therapeutics for oncology and immune diseases of high unmet medical needs, by combining our expertise in disease biology and clinical development.
  • Our lead immunotherapeutic candidate, Foralumab (TZLS-401), is being developed for Crohn's disease, Pro-MS and autoimmune diseases. We believe that Foralumab is the only fully human anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody under clinical development and is expected to minimize adverse immune responses in patients.
  • Tiziana has recently submitted a patent application on potential use of Foralumab, to improve success of chimeric antigen receptor T cells (CAR-T) therapy for cancer and other human diseases. The patent application covers inventions related to improving CAR-T expansion and/or survival.
  • We are accelerating development and cGMP manufacturing of Anti-IL-6r (TZLS-501) monoclonal antibody for treatment of COVID-19 and other autoimmune disease.
  • Our lead product candidate in oncology, Milciclib (TZLS-201), is an orally bioavailable, small molecule, broad spectrum inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases, or CDKs (a family of highly conserved enzymes that regulate the cell cycle and cell division) and Src family kinases (involved in regulating cell growth and potential transformation of normal cells to cancer cells).
  • Our product pipeline also includes a pre-clinical candidate: StemPrintER™, a multi-gene signature diagnostic assay to identify patients at high risk for breast cancer. StemPrintER shows superiority to Oncotype Dx in predicting recurrence in ER+/HER2- postmenopausal breast cancer patients. 
  • On May 29, 2020 Tiziana announced the spin out of StemPrintER and SPARE (together "StemPrintER") into a separate company.
  • We employ a lean and virtual research and development model using highly experienced teams of experts for each business function to maximize value accretion by focusing resources on the drug discovery and development processes.
