"National Cancer Comprehensive Network" adds "alternating electric field therapy" (Novocure) to it`s treatment guidelines for treatment of recurrent glioblastoma

Al's Comment:

 The NCCN guidelines are important because many insurance plans base their payment decisions upon these guidelines! The new version lists  "alternating electric field therapy" (Novocure TTF100-A is the only FDA approved alternating electric field therapy device) as an option for both local or multiple/diffuse recurrences of GBMs.
