About Senesco Technologies, Inc.
Senesco (SNT) is focused on developing cancer therapeutics. Its approach is new and based on its discovery that eIF5A, a novel pathway, has the ability to regulate programmed cell death and cell survival. Programmed cell death, or apoptosis, is a natural process that is used by the body to eliminate defective or diseased cells. SNS01-T is designed to selectively kill B-cell cancers like multiple myeloma, and, mantle cell and diffuse large cell lymphomas while leaving healthy cells unharmed.
Senesco is evaluating SNS01-T in patients with multiple myeloma. To date five patients have been enrolled into the Phase 1b/2a study. So far one patient has completed the 6 week dosing schedule. This patient's disease was considered stable, no disease progression, based on key disease markers including monoclonal protein when evaluated at the end of weeks 3 and 6. Two patients were withdrawn from the study due to disease progression, and two patients are currently being treated. No disease limiting toxicities have been recorded to date.
Senesco, a leader in eIF5A technology, is running a clinical study in multiple myeloma with its lead therapeutic candidate SNS01-T, which targets B-cell cancers by selectively inducing apoptosis by modulating eukaryotic, translation, initiation Factor 5A (eIF5A), which is believed to be an important regulator of cell growth and cell death. Accelerating apoptosis may have applications in treating cancer, while delaying apoptosis may have applications in treating certain inflammatory and ischemic diseases. Senesco has already partnered with leading-edge companies engaged in agricultural biotechnology and biofuels development, and is entitled to earn research and development milestones and royalties if its gene-regulating platform technology is incorporated into its partners' products.
