    Optune is a portable, battery-operated device that generates TTFields at a specific frequency. The TTFields are delivered to the brain through 4 sticky bandages (which hold ceramic discs) that are placed on the surface of the head (called arrays). The arrays create electric forces within the brain that disrupt cancer cell division. Optunes TTFields are a novel type of cancer treatment that has been shown in laboratory studies to slow the growth of tumors, without causing significant side effects. In addition, the use of TTFields as a cancer treatment has been tested in numerous studies of...
