Neurotez, Inc.

Neurotez Inc. is developing a drug to treat Leptin deficiency in Alzheimer’s patients.

From the CEO

“I have personal experience on how devastating a brain disorder that changes your behavior and personality can be. My mother, who died in 2014, suffered from Alzheimer’s. My personal commitment is to develop a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, no matter what this may cost. There is no plan B.”

- Nikolaos Tezapsidis

Neurotez demo


Alzheimer’s disease affects more than 5 million Americans and 40 million patients worldwide.

Current medications provide limited relief. Many of our competitors are focusing on removing either Abeta or tau deposits from the brain where they form plaques and tangles. None of these efforts have generated any effective drug for the last 18 years since the first anti-Abeta trial started.

The idea that Abeta and plaque do not cause Alzheimer’s is gaining momentum in the research community. We were determined to look for a different solution prior to the formation of the plaques.

Industry Snapshot

“Alzheimer’s disease market will more than double to $11.3 Billion by 2021.” GBI Research


Our novel approach focuses on Leptin, a naturally occurring human hormone associated with various metabolic effects, has a large number of receptors in memory centers of the brain.

Hippocampus (in red) responsible for memory formation, cognition and executive function is severely affected by the disease. This region is rich in Leptin receptors.

This protein is often present at decreased levels in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, and cognitive deterioration in AD patients correlates strongly with a decline in circulating Leptin levels.

We are developing Memtin™ to treat Leptin deficiency in Alzheimer’s patients. This Leptin product will act as a novel hormone replacement therapy for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and/or as a preventative for those who are at risk.
