NEW YORK, April 10, 2023 -- Tiziana Life Sciences Ltd. (Nasdaq: TLSA) (“Tiziana” or the “Company”), a biotechnology company developing breakthrough immunomodulation therapies via novel routes of drug delivery, today announced that poster presentations on intranasal foralumab are being presented at the “Preserving the Brain” scientific conference and exhibit held at the Fondazione Prada in Rong Zhai in Shanghai.
“Preserving the Brain” is a scientific forum and exhibit on neurodegenerative diseases as part of the “Human Brains” neuroscience project held in Fondazione Prada in Shanghai, China. In collaboration with thirteen of the most relevant international neuroscience institutes and universities, the aim of this event is to stimulate an open and critical exchange between international scientists and experts on neurodegenerative diseases.
“I am absolutely thrilled that foralumab has once again been invited to be presented at the Fondazione Prada’s “Preserving the Brain” international forum, this year being held in Shanghai” commented Gabriele Cerrone, Executive Chairman and interim Chief Executive Officer of Tiziana Life Sciences. “Having our lead asset Foralumab, the only fully human anti-CD3 highlighted again at an esteemed cultural institution such as Fondazione Prada only further validates our passion and focus to advance this novel therapy in neuroinflammatory diseases.”
Activated T cells play an important role in the inflammatory process. Foralumab, the only fully human anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody (mAb), binds to the T cell receptor and dampens inflammation by modulating T cell function, thereby suppressing effector features in multiple immune cell subsets. This effect has been demonstrated in patients with COVID and with multiple sclerosis, as well as in healthy normal subjects. Intranasal foralumab Phase 2 trials are expected to start in the third quarter of 2023 in patients with non-active SPMS. Immunomodulation by nasal anti-CD3 mAb represents a novel avenue for treatment of inflammatory human diseases.
