10/29/14 Supplement to "Seminars in Oncology" devoted to NovoTTF-100A. This is a set of 4 research papers and an introduction. This is the publication of the registry data mentioned below. It goes into more details on the analysis of how the treatment works in patients and patterns of response. It shows that in about 50% o the patients who respond, the first MRI looks worse, and it takes about 5 months for the MRIs to start to look better - so be aware and do not give up too soon.
Delayed response and survival from NovoTTF-100A in recurrent GBM . A case report of a patient from the trial for recurrent GBMs, who has been on the device and doing well for 6 years. Of note is his initial MRI after sterting the device looked worse. This shows that the device takes time to work and some people have been stopping too soon.
