Novocure establishes initial Clinical Centers of Excellence for Treatment of Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme with Tumor Treating Fields Therapy
Date:12/2/2011

PORTSMOUTH, NH December 2 Novocure, a commercial stage private oncology company, has announced that prominent neuro-oncologists at four clinical centers in the U.S. will be the first to provide access to its Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields) device, NovoTTF-100A System, for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). GBM is a deadly brain tumor affecting approximately 10,000 Americans each year.

The NovoTTF device, approved by the Food and Drug Administration in April 2011, will be available for prescription use in the U.S. initially through several noted brain cancer research centers whose staff have completed training in the use of this unique device. The neuro-oncologists and their centers are:

  • Dr. Eric T. Wong, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts
  • Dr. Jay-Jiguang Zhu, Mischer Neuroscience Institute in the Memorial Hermann Hospital and The University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston, Texas
  • Dr. Joseph Landolfi, New Jersey Neuroscience Institute at JFK, Edison, New Jersey
  • Dr. Herbert Engelhard, University of Illinois Hospital in Chicago, Illinois

Novocure expects to train the following clinicians and their staff at the following clinical sites by year end:
