Date:11/21/2011

e are encouraged by our findings that TTF therapy will find a critical role in the treatment of patients with recurrent GBM."

"The results of this long term follow up continue to validate the promise that NovoTTF™ therapy provides to the thousands of patients who suffer from recurrent GBM," said Asaf Danziger, CEO of Novocure. "We will continue to investigate the potential of this innovative treatment in other types of solid tumor cancers and look forward to sharing our results with the medical community in the future."

About Glioblastoma

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most aggressive and most common form of primary brain tumor in the U.S. The disease affects approximately 10,000 Americans each year. The median overall survival time from initial diagnosis is 15 months with optimal treatment, and median survival from the time of tumor recurrence is only 3-5 months without additional effective treatment. The disease is widely recognized as one of the most aggressive and deadly forms of cancer.

About the NovoTTF-100A System™

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 without many of the side effects of chemotherapy. The NovoTTF-100A has received marketing approval in the US and is
