Cut back in with, "I'm not done," and look the interrupter in the eye as you finish what you're saying.

I used to start over at the beginning every time I was interrupted. People soon realize you want to get a complete thought out and stop interrupting you because they have to listen to partial thoughts. And when I was asked why I was repeating myself on rare occasion I would tell them you interrupted me and I want to make sure you have all the information concisely. They stop interrupting quickly.

Just a second usually works

^^needs to be used with a genuine smile

I don't think most people interrupt others on purpose they just want to get their point across before someone else jumps in and they assume you're done. I agree with @EY1 that something non aggressive like just a second works. Or let me finish my thought

Shhhh

However you do it, just don't sound shrill and annoying. I don't care if you've made the best point of the meeting, people will roll their eyes and not listen.

^or stop listening to you

Be concise. It is the worst thing when you can't articulate fast what you want to say. That's gives people the chance to interrupt you and butcher your position in the discussion.
