Neurim Pharmaceuticals Ltd. is a drug discovery and development company, focused on the central nervous system (CNS), primarily in age-related disorders.
Our main goal is to improve the quality of life.

Neurim Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1991 by Prof. Nava Zisapel, a recognized neuroscientist and by the entrepreneur and businessman Mr. Yehuda Zisapel, who is also founder and director of the RAD Group, a high-tech group specializing in data communication and chairman of Rad-Biomed, a biomedical start-up incubator.

Through academic research on neurobiology, Prof. Zisapel, hypothesized that age-related sleep complaints are linked to the decay in production of melatonin. These findings initiated the creation of Neurim Pharmaceuticals, a company focused on age-related disorders such as insomnia and Alzheimer’s disease, primarily in the central nervous system (CNS).

LabDr. Moshe Laudon, who joined in 1992 and has thorough scientific and preclinical research experience, leads the drug discovery and lead optimization. Dr. Tali Nir, who joined in 1997 and has scientific as well as clinical experience, leads preclinical and clinical pharmaceutical development activities.

Building the scientific background

Neurim Pharmaceuticals’ developmed Circadin®, the first IP-protected prolonged-release, melatonin containing ethical drug.

During this time numerous scientific collaborations have been established to explore the relationship between melatonin production and insomnia and test whether melatonin replacement therapy would be beneficial for sleep in patients producing insufficient amounts of melatonin.

The results of these studies have initiated the clinical development program of Neurim’s prolonged-release melatonin formulation for sleep disorders in adult and elderly patients.
The drug Circadin® obtained marketing approval in the EU on the 29th June 2007 and is currently marketed in Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.
