Abstract:
Senesco Technologies, Inc. ("Senesco" or the "Company") (NYSE Amex: SNT), announced today that an oral presentation will be delivered at the 15th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy. The conference will be held May 16-19th, 2012 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Company will present during the Cancer-Targeted Gene & Cell Therapy Oral Abstract Session, which will begin Thursday, May 17, at 1:15 P.M. Eastern Time. The oral presentation, entitled "SNS01-T, an eIF5A-Based Gene Therapy Nanoparticle Designed for the Treatment of Multiple Myeloma, has Anti-Tumoral Activity in Lymphoma", will describe the effectiveness of SNS01-T in B-cell cancers, which is designed to selectively induce programmed cell death. The talk will be delivered by Catherine Taylor who is from Senesco CSO John Thompson's research laboratory at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.

About Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is an incurable cancer of plasma cells, a type of white blood cell derived from B-lymphocytes, normally responsible for the production of antibodies, in which abnormal cells accumulate in the bone marrow leading to bone lesions and interfering with the production of normal blood cells. Senesco was previously granted orphan drug status for SNS01-T, the Company's lead drug candidate for treatment of multiple myeloma.

About Senesco Technologies, Inc.
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 is entitled to earn research and development milestones and royalties if its gene-regulating platform technology is incorporated into its partners’ products. www.senesco.com
