This concise text provides a
complete overview of alternating electric fields therapy -- also known as tumor
treating fields -- for glioblastoma and other types of solid tumor
malignancies. Readers are given a fundamental understanding of this novel
anti-cancer treatment modality by learning from clinical trial data as well as
the physical and cell biology effects on tumor cells when alternating electric
fields are applied both in vitro and in vivo.

Chapters illustrate the physics
behind electric field propagation in space and other media. This is
followed by a review of our current understanding of the electric field effects
on dividing cells - including the disruption of cytokinesis, proper chromosome
segregation and activation on the cell surface chaperons that induce
immunogenic cell death. Data from phase III trials for the treatment of
recurrent and newly diagnosed glioblastomas are included, as well as some of
the ancillary post hoc analyses that were performed by various
investigators. The remainder of the chapter covers other solid tumor
malignancies, including non-small cell lung cancer, pancreatic cancer and
ovarian cancer, as this treatment modality is being applied to systemic

Alternating Electric Fields
Therapy in Oncology offers oncologists,
neurologists, radiation oncologists, biomedical engineers, cell biologists and
mitosis researchers the fundamentals needed for clinical practice.
