Tiziana Life Sciences CEO Discusses COVID-19 Trial Data in Exclusive Interview

NEW YORK and LONDON - February 3, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Tiziana Life Sciences plc (NASDAQ:TLSA/LSE:TILS) ("Tiziana" or the "Company"), a biotechnology company focused on innovative therapeutics for oncology, inflammation, and infectious diseases, today announced an interview with Dr. Kunwar Shailubhai, CEO and CSO, is now available.

In the exclusive interview, Dr. Shailubhai discusses the positive effect of nasally administered Foralumab in COVID-19 mediated pulmonary and systemic inflammation and its potential related to newly identified COVID-19 variants in UK, South Africa, and Brazil. Dr. Shailubhai also comments on the nearly 2x improvement shown in CT scans of the lungs of patients treated with Foralumab as compared to those in the control group.

COVID-19 enters through the nasal and respiratory passage, accordingly the proprietary nasal formulation and nasal delivery of Foralumab to modulate immunity is expected to delay progression of the disease and to provide immediate relief to COVID-19 patients.
