Foralumab is a fully human anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody (mAb) for the treatment of Crohn’ s and neurodegenerative diseases. We have recently completed two Phase 1 clinical trials: one for progressive MS indication with nasal administration and the other for Crohn’s disease indication, with enteric coated capsules administered orally. Foralumab has demonstrated ability to activate regulatory T cells that systemically circulate to elicit targeted immunomodulation providing therapeutic benefit to 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. Foralumab administered alone or co-administered in combination with co-stimulatory molecules, such as an anti-IL-6 receptor monoclonal antibody, an anti-CD28 monoclonal antibody or specific inhibitors of signaling pathways of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K), protein kinase B (AKT), or mammalian target to improve success of CAR-T therapy.
Anti IL-6R mAb
Anti IL-6R is a fully human mAb, which binds to both the membrane-bound and soluble forms of the IL6R and depletes circulating levels of the IL-6 in the blood. Tiziana is accelerating development in Anti IL-6R mAb as a treatment of COVID-19.
Milciclib is the Company’s Phase 2 clinical candidate for the treatment of multiple cancer indications such as hepatocellular carcinoma, thymic cancer and thymoma. Milciclib, a pan cyclin-dependent kinases (CDK) inhibitor, has demonstrated potent anti-tumor activity as a monotherapy as well as combination therapy. Milciclib is also being used for treatment of recurrent HCC in liver transplant patients in an investigator-initiated clinical trial. The safety and clinical activity of combination treatment of Milciclib with Regorafenib in liver transplant patients with recurrent HCC has been evaluated showing combination treatment was well tolerated with manageable toxicities. Safety and clinical activity data was presented at Virtual ASCO 2020 conference.
