Novocure™ Certifies Eight Additional Clinical Centers of Excellence to Treat Most Common Brain Tumor with Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields) Therapy
Date:5/24/2012

join the seven existing centers where NovoTTF therapy has been available for recurrent GBM patients since the end of last year:

  • Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Dr. Eric T. Wong
  • Mischer Neuroscience Institute in the Memorial Hermann Hospital and The University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston, Texas; Dr. Jay-Jiguang Zhu
  • New Jersey Neuroscience Institute at JFK, Edison, New Jersey; Dr. Joseph Landolfi
  • University of Illinois Hospital, Chicago, Illinois; Dr. Herbert Engelhard
  • NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; Dr. Andrew Lassman.
  • Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York; Dr. Lisa DeAngelis
  • University of California San Diego Moores Cancer Center, San Diego, California - Dr. Santosh Kesari

TTFields therapy, a novel platform technology for the treatment of solid tumors, provides physicians with a fourth treatment modality for recurrent GBM in addition to surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

TTFields therapy has been shown in vitro and in vivo to effectively inhibit tumor growth by inducing cell death.  TTFields take advantage of the electrical characteristics, geometrical shape and replication rate of dividing cancer cells – all of which makes them susceptible to the effects of
