The science of Tumor Treating Fields has the potential to extend beyond glioblastoma and mesothelioma. Tumor Treating Fields have shown a consistent anti-mitotic effect in our preclinical and clinical research spanning more than two decades. 

We believe we have gained a deep understanding of the underlying mechanism of action and the multiple pathways through which Tumor Treating Fields exert their effects within dividing cancer cells. Our research shows that Tumor Treating Fields can have an anti-mitotic effect in more than 15 different solid tumor types in culture and in several in vivo tumor models, including some of the most aggressive forms of cancer. We are committed to advancing the science of Tumor Treating Fields across a broad spectrum of solid tumors and bringing our therapy to cancer patients who may benefit.

clinical trials

We continue to test Tumor Treating Fields as a treatment for a broad range of solid tumors.

We sponsor clinical trials of Tumor Treating Fields in several cancer types. For more information on our ongoing clinical trials, visit novocuretrials.com and clinicaltrials.gov.
