Anti-inflammatory Synergy from the Sea

Seanergy is a clinical stage pharmaceutical company developing a new category of topical therapeutics for treatment of inflammatory and other skin conditions.

Our patented technology is based on the discovery of a synergistic mechanism between anti-inflammatory APIs and Sulphated Polysaccharides extracted from algae.


Sulphated Polysaccharides (SPS), secreted by algae, have been broadly used in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics as inactive ingredients. Seanergy discovered their unique interaction with anti-inflammatory APIs – the core of our innovation and proprietary IP.
We are focused exploring the potential of SPS and delivering it 
to patients.


The combination of SPS with known anti-inflammatory active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) is generating a surprisingly potent therapeutic effect. Ex-vivo and in-vivo we see dramatic improvement across a variety of clinical and histological parameters. We are now taking this discovery to the clinic with an aim to improve patients’ lives by enhancing potency while reducing side effects.

Topical inflammations

Seanergy’s innovative topical therapeutics will touch the lives of many millions. Patients suffering from dermatological and auto-immune diseases including Atopic Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Alopecia Areata, Lichen Planus, Seborrhea and numerous other inflammatory skin conditions will now be able to receive better, safer and quicker relief.


The discovery of the synergistic activity of SPS with anti-inflammatory agents has opened the door to a variety of applications. Our technology is transforming these synergistic combinations into topical therapeutics for inflammatory conditions of the skin in dermatological, autoimmune, other diseases.

Seanergy was founded in the unique framework of Mii Fund and Labs. The company is managed and operated by its founders together with the Mii team at the Mii Labs R&D center in Rehovot, near the Weizmann Institute of Science. This ecosystem has granted the company access to resources far beyond the reach of a “common” startup company.
