Glioblastoma, also called glioblastoma multiforme, or GBM, is a type of primary brain cancer. GBM is the most common type of primary brain tumor in adults. Because GBM can be hard to reach, surgery may not be able to remove the entire tumor. GBM also grows fast and can spread quickly. Treatment for GBM can include surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy or Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields). TTFields are delivered by Optune, a wearable and portable FDA-approved device for the treatment of GBM. Optune created low-intensity alternating electric fields- called Tumor Treating Fields- which help slow or stop GBM cancer cells from diving and may also cause some of them to die. It is a portable therapy that may allow patients to go about their daily activiites while receiving treatment. The TTFields are delivered to the brain through transducer arrays placed on the scalp.
