ST. HELIER, Jersey–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Novocure (NASDAQ:NVCR) announced today that the company will hold a research and development day for analysts and investors on Monday, Dec. 12, 2016, from 1 to 4 p.m. EST in New York City. During the event, we plan to provide analyses from completed clinical trials, including the full 695 patient dataset from the EF-14 trial in newly diagnosed glioblastoma, data from the PANOVA phase 2 pilot trial in advanced pancreatic cancer and data from the INNOVATE phase 2 pilot trial in recurrent ovarian cancer. In addition, the company will provide an update of recent preclinical findings related to Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields) and a review of its ongoing clinical pipeline.
“I am very pleased with the progress we made in our clinical development programs during the second quarter of 2016,” said Asaf Danziger, Novocure’s Chief Executive Officer. “We enter the back half of the year with a substantial liquidity position and strong preclinical data supporting broad applicability of TTFields to multiple solid tumor indications. With these factors in place, we are excited to share clinical developments that will position us to expand TTFields beyond our current glioblastoma indication. We believe that glioblastoma is only the beginning for TTFields and Novocure, and we are dedicated to developing this technology for patients who have such a vital need for improved treatment options.”
Dr. Eilon Kirson, Novocure’s Chief Science Officer and Head of Research and Development, will moderate the event. A live webcast will be accessible from www.novocure.com. Portions of the event will be available for replay on the company’s website for at least 14 days.
