Posted on: 13 Nov 17

Novocure (NASDAQ:NVCR) announced today 28 presentations on Tumor Treating Fields from externally led clinical research and analysis at the 22nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO), November 16 through November 19, in San Francisco. These 28 presentations add to the six clinical, 13 preclinical and 10 simulation study presentations on Tumor Treating Fields at SNO this year. A total of 60 abstracts on Tumor Treating Fields, including two oral presentations, will be presented. The volume of Tumor Treating Fields presentations marks a record number of abstracts for Novocure at this conference and demonstrates what we believe to be a growing interest in Novocure’s cancer treatment among researchers and clinicians throughout the world.

The presentations focus on the use of Tumor Treating Fields for a variety of brain cancers, and highlight data and trial designs from ongoing investigator-sponsored clinical trials program for Tumor Treating Fields. The trials studied Tumor Treating Fields in patients with newly diagnosed and recurrent glioblastoma, and as a potential treatment for pediatric gliomas, low-grade gliomas, meningioma, and brain metastases from non-small cell lung cancer. The trials included patients from the U.S., Germany and Austria.

“We continue to see an increased external interest among the scientific community in exploring Tumor Treating Fields as a potential treatment option in a variety of solid tumor cancer types,” said Dr. Eilon Kirson, Novocure’s Chief Science Officer and Head of Research and Development. “The external study of Tumor Treating Fields helps us to deepen our understanding of our treatment, which we believe will lead to better patient outcomes.”
