How does the NovoTTF-100L System work?

NovoTTF-100L works by creating and delivering
Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields)

You may be wondering what TTFields are and how they can treat mesothelioma. Here are a couple of facts:

  • TTFields may slow or stop cancer cells from dividing and may destroy some of them
Mesothelioma cancer cell begins to divide

The video below further explains how NovoTTF-100L stops cancer cells from dividing

NovoTTF-100L delivers treatment with TTFields where the mesothelioma tumor is located

  • NovoTTF-100L delivers TTFields through adhesive patches called transducer arrays, which are placed on the upper body as instructed by a trained professional
Sample front and back placements of transducer arrays

Array placements are personalized based on your body size and tumor location.

Note: Your array placement may vary. This may include the placement of arrays on your sides.
