Recurrent Glioblastoma – Completed
Novocure completed a pivotal (phase III) trial of 237 patients with glioblastoma multiforme brain tumors that had recurred after initial treatment.  This trial was conducted under an FDA-approved investigational device exemption (IDE) at 28 centers across the US, Europe and Israel.  The results from this trial served as the basis for FDA approval of the NovoTTF-100A System for the treatment of patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme.
