SenesTech Scientists Attend International Workshop on Fertility in New Zealand
Date:3/4/2009

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- SenesTech, Inc. scientists, Drs. Loretta Mayer, Cheryl Dyer and Timothy Vail, were invited to attend the Third International Workshop on Fertility Control in Wildlife Management in Lincoln, New Zealand where they presented SenesTech's latest developments in humane animal population management. This invitation only meeting is organized by the governments of Australia, the United States, New Zealand and Great Britain, who are working together to support the development of new, more effective methods for wildlife management, and by treaty, will accept the research done in any one of the four countries. In previous years attendees have presented research on contraceptive vaccines, parasite-vectored fertility control, and oral bait delivery systems for fertility control. This invitation reflects the cutting edge nature of SenesTech's research into chemical fertility management in the rice field rat of Southeast Asia as it is the only non-governmental entity invited to the workshop during the four year history of this annual meeting.

SenesTech's initial product, ContraPest(TM), which is being developed to counteract the rice rat plague in the rice producing countries of the world, will dramatically improve rice yields in Southeast Asia by reducing the rice field rat population. Over half of the worlds 6 billion people depend on rice as their primary food source and Southeast Asia produces over 84% of this resource. Currently, 1/5-1/3 of the Southeast Asian rice crop is severely damaged by these rice field rats. SenesTech's product is a unique non-toxic, environmentally sound oral bait that can dramatically reduce this pest population, resulting in a substantial reduction in the devastation caused by rice field rats in just one growing season. A simple 10% increase in rice production as a result of population management through ContraPest(TM) will feed an additional 380 million people.

An additional SenesTech product, ChemSpay(TM) is the only product currently under development that has been shown to induce permanent sterility in female dogs. Further, SenesTech has a prototype drug delivery system that allows for a single exposure to induce sterility in dogs.

SenesTech is partnered with Dr. Lyn Hinds, the Senior Principal Research Scientist of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia and Dr. Sudamaji at the Indonesian Centre for Rice Research (ICRR).
