T.T. Fields Brain Cap ??

My husband who is 3 1/2 years battling GBM and now with recurrence recently saw this news article on the T.T. Fields brain cap. It emits electrodes to the brain preventing cancer cells from forming and maybe killing any that are there.

Has anyone else heard of this? My husband received a phone call from the neuro-oncologist, Dr. Mrugala, who with his team of developers, created brain cap. It is FDA approved.

Here is the news article on this:

Any thoughts?

Just wanted  to send you a little more info on what I believe you are talking about. This is from Clinical Trials:

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=NovoTTF-100A+&Search=Search

It has been in research for a while and was being looked at one of the hospitals I am treated at here in Houston. HOPE this helps....

If you search, there have been several previous discussions about this on this board under the names "Novo-TTF" and "Novocure." Congratulations to your husband on the long survival time.
