device for short amounts of time when bathing. The only downside to this treatment is that in order to use this treatment, one must shave their hair. TTF therapy is often used in combination with the chemotherapeutic drug temozolomide, sometimes abbreviated TMZ. The least common side effects, seen in 10% or less of patients, of the treatment when in combination with temozolomide are “low blood platelet count, nausea, constipation, vomiting, fatigue, scalp irritation from device use, headache, convulsions, and depression”. The most common side effects of just using TTF are “scalp irritation from device use and headache”. There are also adverse reactions seen in relation to using the device such as “scalp irritation from device use, headache, malaise, muscle twitching, fall and skin ulcer” (Novocure). The cost of TTF therapy, specifically Optune, runs at $21,000 a month. On average, patients use TTF therapy for 4.1 months and so the cost falls around $86,000. According to the Emerging Technology Evidence Report, currently, Medicare does not have a determination on the national coverage of TTF therapy, so it is up to the discretion of local Medicare carriers. Also, according to the report, out of eleven private insurance companies in the United States, one covers TTF therapy, seven deny coverage and consider the treatment “investigational”, and three have no policy about it. According to Novocure, the company that owns the device, many insurance companies have provided coverage of the therapy by using a case-by-case system, determined by the medical necessity of treatment. The Musella Foundation for Brain Tumor Research and Information created an assistance program from patients needing TTF therapy for recurrent GBM. Also, certain patients who live in the United States and meet specific income conditions can receive up to $5,000 per year for the treatment (ECRI Institute 2016). According to the New York Times, Novocure offers the treatment for free for patients without health coverage (Grady 2014). Prognosis When patients used Optune (TTF therapy) for 12 hours or more a day and also took TMZ during the same period, 86% of patients increased their survival rate compared to just taking TMZ alone. The more compliant patients were with using the device, the better their outcome was. In order to get the best results and maximal survival benefit, patients should aim to use the device for at least 18 hours a day. For patients who had compliance over 90>GET ANSWER
