Al's Comment:

These are exciting trials. 

It is nice to see more research on other uses for the Optune device.  

Posted on: 10/25/2017

1. Optune trial opens for patients with low grade gliomas

A Phase II Study of NovoTTF-200A Alone and With Temozolomide in Patients With Low-Grade Gliomas

 This trial will compare the use of Optune alone against the use of Optune combined with Temodar,  in patients with low grade gliomas.   

The Temodar will be using a metronomic  schedule (daily low dose instead of 5 days of high dose per month)  for 1 year. Optune will be used in both arms for 1 year.

2. Optune trial opens for pediatric patients with high grade gliomas!  This is a trial of the Optune NovoTTF-200A System With and Without Concomitant Temozolomide and Bevacizumab in Pediatric Patients With High-grade Gliomas
