Full interview: Tiziana Life Sciences CEO explains how its potential coronavirus fighting antibody is unique

Tiziana Life Sciences PLC (LON:TILS) (NASDAQ:TLSA) CEO and Chief Scientific Officer Dr Kunwar Shailubhai tells Proactive the US and UK-based biotechnology company has developed an antibody that holds 'distinct advantages' over biotech giants Sanofi and Roche's drugs.

The company recently raised gross proceeds of approximately $10 million to help fund development efforts.
