Novocure Announces 35 Presentations on Tumor Treating Fields at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting 2018

Novocure
Posted on: 15 Mar 18

Novocure (NASDAQ: NVCR) announced today 35 presentations on Tumor Treating Fields at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2018, April 14 through April 18, in Chicago. Tumor Treating Fields is a cancer therapy that uses electric fields tuned to specific frequencies to disrupt cell division, inhibiting tumor growth and causing affected cancer cells to die.

The volume of Tumor Treating Fields presentations marks a record number of abstracts for Novocure at this conference. Of the 35 presentations, 18 are externally led research. The clinical and preclinical research to be presented includes the application of Tumor Treating Fields in seven cancer types, representing Novocure’s evolving pipeline and commitment to developing Tumor Treating Fields for a variety of solid tumors.

“Over the past several years, the volume of presentations on Tumor Treating Fields at the AACR Annual Meeting has increased substantially, demonstrating what we believe to be an increased interest in Tumor Treating Fields from the scientific community,” said Dr. Eilon Kirson, Novocure’s Chief Science Officer and Head of Research and Development. “Tumor Treating Fields shows promise in multiple solid tumor types, and we are honored to have the opportunity to share our growing volume of research at a leading conference in cancer research.”
