An Overview of Alternating Electric Fields Therapy (NovoTTF Therapy) for the Treatment of Malignant Glioma.
 

Author(s): Kenneth D Swanson, Edwin Lok, Eric T Wong

Journal: Curr Neurol Neurosci Rep. 2016 Jan;16(1):8.

 

As with many cancer treatments, tumor treating fields (TTFields) target rapidly dividing tumor cells. During mitosis, TTFields-exposed cells exhibit uncontrolled membrane blebbing at the onset of anaphase, resulting in aberrant mitotic exit. Based on these criteria, at least two protein ...
