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

alternating electric fields.  The therapy is delivered via non-invasive, insulated transducer arrays that are placed directly on the skin in the region of the tumor.  TTFields therapy is frequency-tuned to target cancer cells and avoid harming normal cells. It creates an artificial, alternating electric field within the tumor which disrupts cancer cell division and can cause complete destruction of the dividing cancer cells.

About the NovoTTF-100A System

The NovoTTF-100A System is a portable, non-invasive medical device designed for continuous use throughout the day by the patient.  The device has been shown in in vitro and in vivo studies to slow and reverse tumor growth by inhibiting mitosis, the process by which cells divide and replicate.  The NovoTTF-100A device, which weighs about six pounds (three kilograms), creates a low intensity, alternating electric field within the tumor that exerts physical forces on electrically charged cellular components, preventing the normal mitotic process and causing cancer cell death prior to division.  In patients with recurrent glioblastoma brain tumors, the device has shown clinical efficacy comparable to that of active chemotherapies with better quality of life and without many of the side effects of chemotherapy.  The most commonly reported side effect from NovoTTF-100A treatment was a mild-to-moderate rash beneath the transducer arrays. The NovoTTF-100A has received marketing approval in the U.S. and is a CE Marked device that is cleared for sale in Europe.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the NovoTTF-100A System for use as a treatment for adult patients (22 years of age or older) with histologically-confirmed glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), following histologically– or radiologically-confirmed recurrence in the supra-tentorial region of the brain after receiving chemotherapy.  The device is intended to be used as mono
