In recurrent GBM,
Patients on Optune experienced fewer systemic AEs than patients on chemotherapy alone1
|Incidence of grade 2-4 AEs occurring in ≥5%
|General deterioration and malaise||5||6|
|Metabolism and nutrition disorders||4||6|
|Nervous system disorders||30||28|
The most common (≥10%) AEs seen with Optune monotherapy were medical device site reaction and headache3
The following AEs were considered related to Optune: medical device site reaction, headache, malaise, muscle twitching, fall, and skin ulcer2
In EF-11, 16% of patients experienced a grade 1/2 medical device site reaction2
Mild-to-moderate skin irritation, the most common device-related side effect with Optune, was easily manageable, reversible, and did not result in treatment discontinuation2
