Professor Zvi Ram presents phase III recurrent glioblastoma survival and quality of life data from the first pivotal study of the NovoTTF-100A at 15th Annual Society for Neuro-Oncology Scientific Meeting
Date:11/19/2010

the age of 60 who were able to maintain normal daily activities (KPS>80 percent) at the time of enrollment achieved a significant increase in median overall survival time (8.8 vs. 6.6 months, n=110, p< 0.01) and in the 1-year survival rate (35 percent vs. 20 percent, n=110, p< 0.01) when treated with TTF Therapy versus effective chemotherapies. TTF therapy also produced a significant increase in survival time for patients who had failed treatment with bevacizumab (Avastin; Roche) prior to enrollment (4.4 vs. 3.1 months, n=44, p< 0.02). Patients enrolled in the study also reported superior quality of life scores (EORTC QLQ-C30) across a range of lifestyle and symptom categories for TTF therapy compared to the chemotherapy-treated control group.

"The data presented at SNO further validate TTF therapy as a potential treatment option for patients with recurrent glioblastoma tumors," said Asaf Danziger, chief executive officer of Novocure, the trial sponsor. "The suggested improvement in quality of life scores reported by patients receiving TTF therapy is particularly important given the nature of this disease and the strong desire among patients and their caregivers to avoid the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation."

TTF therapy has been shown in vitro to slow and reverse tumor cell proliferation 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.

Novocure is now sponsoring a second phase III study of TTF therapy at 26 centers in the US, Europe, and Israel. This study will enroll 283 patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma tumors. Patients will be randomized (2 to 1) to receive TTF therapy and temozolomide (Temo
