Prof Roger Stupp - Northwestern University, Chicago, USA

Prof Stupp speaks with ecancer at AACR 2017 about developing treatments for glioblastoma, from temozolomide and chemotherapy to novel tumour treating fields.

Prof Stupp describes how, by aligning polar molecules within cells using electromagnetic stimulation, it is possible to induce cell death within tumours, and summarises data from a randomised, multi-center phase III trial which he presented at a press conference, here.

He describes these results as a significant advance in treating historically aggressive and resilient brain cancers, and recommends it for use.
