Update on IND Application for Oral Formulation of Foralumab for Treatment of NASH

 

Tiziana Life Sciences plc (NASDAQ: TLSA; AIM: TILS), a US and UK biotechnology company that focuses on the discovery and development of novel molecules to treat human diseases in oncology and immunology, announces an update regarding its Investigational New Drug application ("IND") to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to initiate a Phase 1 clinical trial of enteric-coated capsules of Foralumab in healthy volunteers.

Following completion of the 30 calender day review, FDA has requested more information and safety data from the ongoing phase 1 trial with nasal administration of foralumab to justify the proposed dose-range for the phase 1 trial with oral administration of enteric-coated capsules of foralumab in healthy volunteers. The stability data on the dose-range of 10-250 mg of foralumab was included in the submitted IND for the ongoing phase 1 trial with nasal administration. FDA also advised us to adequately cross-reference the submitted IND with nasal administration. Accordingly, we have withdrawn the current IND to include safety data from the ongoing trial with nasal administration and adequately cross-reference the IND for nasal administration with solution of foralumab.

The ongoing phase 1 trial with nasal administration of foralumab has completed the first two doses (10 and 50 mg) and the highest dose 250 mg is currently ongoing, and is expected to be completed by May 15, 2019. Upon completion, the safety data from this ongoing phase 1 trial with nasal administration will be provided to  FDA as part of the revised IND for oral administration of enteric-coated capsules of foralumab in healthy volunteers. A further announcement will be made in due course following receipt of a response from  FDA.

Dr Kunwar Shailubhai, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Scientific Officer of the Company stated "We are in agreement and believe that FDA recommendations will further strenghthen our IND for evaluation of oral enteric-coated capsules of foralumab in healthy volunteers."

 

The person who arranged for the release of this announcement on behalf of the Company was Dr Kunwar Shailubhai, CEO of Tiziana.
