SenesTech, Inc. Commences Product Registration Process With Australian Government
Date:11/10/2008

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- SenesTech, Inc. has launched the regulatory process to register both the active ingredient and the first ContraPest(R) product with the government of Australia. In parallel with laboratory research and testing in the rice field rat species, registration of ContraPest(R) bait will open the door for marketing this unique rodent population management product to the agricultural ministries of Southeast Asia. ContraPest(R) will target the rice field rat, a major rodent pest species for rice agriculture in this region, known to eat or damage a significant portion of rice crops each year.

ContraPest(R) works through disruption of the reproductive potential of female rodents by selectively eliminating the female's supply of egg cells. The direct effect will be to drastically reduce the number of rats in the field. This translates to increased rice yield, and since nearly half of the world's population depends on rice for sustenance, a 10 percent increase in rice yield will feed approximately 380 million people per year. A further benefit to this humane approach to pest population control is the reduced potential for disease, since rodents and their carcasses are vectors for many human illnesses, some life-threatening.

The regulatory process for ContraPest(R) has been initiated with the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA), the Australian agency responsible for oversight of all agricultural chemical and related products that are manufactured or used in Australia. This registration process will be guided by direct consultation with regulatory expertise within the Australian government.

"The APVMA largely sets the standards for agricultural product use in Australasia, so gaining registration by the APVMA will mean nearly instantaneous acceptance of the product by governments with rice-based agriculture across the region," says Timothy L. Vail, Ph.D., Vice President of Manufacturin
