Senesco Technologies Announces Successful Completion of First Milestone Related to Agreement with Bayer CropScience

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Senesco Technologies, Inc. ("Senesco" or the "Company") (Amex: SNT) announced today that Bayer CropScience has successfully completed the first R&D milestone related to Bayer's use of Senesco's technology in Brassica oilseeds.

Senesco's proprietary gene technology was licensed to Bayer CropScience in November 2006 to enhance Canola yields in Bayer's InVigor(R) canola hybrids and future hybrid's business internationally. Upon completion of this milestone, Senesco received an undisclosed payment from Bayer.

"We are pleased to arrive at this initial R&D milestone with Bayer CropScience," said Bruce Galton, President and CEO of Senesco. "We believe that our gene technology has broad application to both food and non-food crops."

About Senesco Technologies, Inc.

Senesco Technologies, Inc. is a U.S. biotechnology company, headquartered in New Brunswick, NJ. Senesco has initiated preclinical research to trigger or delay cell death in mammals (apoptosis) to determine if the technology is applicable in human medicine. Accelerating apoptosis may have applications to development of cancer treatments. Delaying apoptosis may have applications to certain inflammatory and ischemic diseases. Senesco takes its name from the scientific term for the aging of plant cells: senescence. Delaying cell breakdown in plants extends freshness after harvesting, while increasing crop yields, plant size and resistance to environmental stress. The Company believes that its technology can be used to develop superior strains of crops without any modification other than delaying natural plant senescence. Senesco has partnered with leading-edge companies engaged in agricultural biotechnology and earns research and development fees for applying its gene-regulating platform technology to enhance its partners' products.
