Optune™ is a wearable and portable, FDA-approved device that has been shown, in clinical trials, to safely deliver continuous therapy to the area of your brain where your Glioblastomas (GBM) or other cancerous tumor is located.
You may be worried about what kind of effects Optune™ can have on other parts of your body; that's what makes Optune™ different. Optune™ does not enter your bloodstream and has not been shown to affect cells in other parts of your body.
Optune™ delivers therapy through four adhesive patches, called transducer arrays. These transducer arrays are applied to your scalp and are connected to our device and battery. It is recommended that you use Optune™ for at least 18 hours a day.
Call one of our cancer centers and meet with our oncology physicians to see if Optune™ is right for you.
