BRIDGEWATER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Senesco Technologies, Inc. (“Senesco” or the “Company”) (OTCQB:SNTI) today announced the closing of enrollment in its ongoing Phase 1b/2a open-label, multiple-dose, dose-escalation clinical trial of SNS01-T, a first-in-class modulator of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 5A (eIF5A), in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma, plasma cell leukemia or B cell lymphoma.

The safety portion of the study has established a maximum tolerated dose following the reporting of a second dose limiting toxicity (DLT) in the fourth and highest dosing cohort (0.375 mg/kg). The first DLT observed was a Grade 4 infusion reaction that occurred in a patient who had not received the designated premedications. The second DLT, an uncomplicated Grade 4 neutropenia, occurred after eight doses in a lymphoma patient. A total of eight patients were enrolled into cohort 4. With the completion of the high dose cohort, the trial will stop recruitment. All patients currently enrolled may continue treatment at the recommended cohort 3 dose level of 0.2 mg/kg and will be monitored through completion of their study treatment. The Company will submit the clinical, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data from the study for presentation at an upcoming scientific meeting.
