Steven A. Toms, MD, director, neurosurgery, Geisinger Health System, discusses the combination of the Novo Tumor Treating Fields (NovoTTF) system and temozolomide for patients with glioblastoma.

Clinical Pearls

  • Patients were randomized 2:1 to NovoTTF in combination with temozolomide (n = 210) or standard therapy (n = 105), which included surgery, radiation, and temozolomide.
  • Progression-free and overall survival were both enhanced with the addition of NovoTTF.
  • Anecdotally, Toms said, NovoTTF has been well-tolerated by patients.
