Neuvivo is dedicated to creating therapeutics for the treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and other neurodegenerative diseases. We are investigating a patented macrophage-targeted technology, NP001, designed to address chronic inflammation, a key factor in the progressive loss of motor function in ALS.To date, the treatment has received Orphan Drug and Fast Track designation by the FDA as it addresses a clear unmet medical need. We are diligently working to move this compound toward regulatory approval, with the goal of delivering an effective new treatment to reduce the suffering caused by ALS.
Current research points to compromised macrophage function as a critical factor in many other CNS diseases, such as Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease, suggesting that NP001 may potentially have a role in addressing a range of CNS diseases.
ALS is a neurological disorder that causes the loss of motor neurons with grave consequences for the patient. There are approximately 40,000-50,000 people living with ALS in the US and Europe. There are just two active ingredients currently approved to treat the disease, but both have limitations.
Neuvivo has developed NP001, a proprietary small molecule investigational therapeutic that in clinical trials has shown an ability to slow the progression of the disease in patients age 40-65. Clinical trials* of NP001 to date have not suggested any drug-related serious adverse events.
Neuvivo is working closely with leading ALS clinicians, researchers, and regulatory authorities to develop an effective and safe treatment for people living with ALS – as efficiently as possible.

Neuvivo has completed two Phase 2 trials, providing data demonstrating NP001’s potential to slow the progression of ALS and to protect motor neurons. To date, the trials have not suggested any drug-related serious adverse events.
Neuvivo is now in a position to initiate Phase 2 studies in Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and Vascular Dementia.
NP001 has strong IP protection. 8 patents have been issued in the US and ROW with protection extending through 2042. Additional patents have been filed.
Early patents relating to the technology are under license from the University of California, San Francisco.
The team at Neuvivo is committed to developing groundbreaking treatments for ALS and other motor neuron diseases.
