Patients Who Used Optune® More Than 90 Percent of the Time Had the Greatest Chance of Survival in Novocure’s EF-14 Trial: A Median Survival of 24.9 Months from Randomization and a Five-Year Survival of 29.3 Percent

Al's Comment:

 A 29.3% 5 year survival - on a large number of patients in a randomized phase 3 trial is very impressive. This shows a dose-response effect, which proves that the concept actually works.  When comparing the median survival, remember that this is from the time that the patients were randomized, not from diagnosis - the difference is almost 4 months. This means that the median survival is almost 29 months, which is a big step forward!
