Our Therapy

Tumor Treating Fields, or TTFields, are low intensity, alternating electric fields.

TTFields disrupt cell division through physical interactions with key molecules during mitosis. This non-invasive treatment targets solid tumors.

Mechanism of Action

Tumor Treating Fields, or TTFields, are low intensity, alternating electric fields within the intermediate frequency range. TTFields disrupt cell division through physical interactions with key molecules during mitosis. This non-invasive treatment targets solid tumors.

Delivery Method

TTFields are generated via pairs of transducers arrays placed directly on the skin’s surface in the region surrounding the tumor. The delivery system is portable and is designed to allow patients to go about their daily activities while receiving treatment.

Reengineering Cancer Care

Novocure’s Executive Chairman, describes TTFields as a new tool in the fight against cancer at a TEDMED conference in October 2011.
