Novocure Announces 43 Presentations on Tumor Treating Fields at 24th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuro-Oncology
Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)
There was a lot of research on Optune presented last week at the SNO meeting! You can see the list of abstracts when you click the link below.. the abstracts are available on the Neuro-oncology website at https://academic.oup.com/neuro-oncology/issue/21/Supplement_6 you can search for the abstract number from the list of presentations, but note they reuse the abstract numbers from year to year so when you search for a presentation, you get a list of results. Look for the year 2019!
Using Optune at the same time as radiation is now possible. Too early to report results but it was safe.
Adding Celebrex or a checkpoint inhibitor or Avastin or Lomustine to Optune helps somewhat! We need to find the best combinations.
