Novocure is a global oncology company that strives to extend survival in some of the most aggressive forms of cancer worldwide.
In 2000, Yoram Palti, our founder and professor emeritus of physiology and biophysics at the Technion?—?Israel Institute of Technology, sought to leverage his expertise in biophysics to develop a new way to treat solid tumor cancers that would destroy tumor cells while sparing healthy tissue and avoiding many of the life-altering side effects of existing cancer therapies.
He set up a laboratory in his basement to explore the potential of electric fields as a treatment for solid tumors.
Professor Palti founded Novocure to provide patients with a new cancer treatment based on his hypothesis, since proven, that alternating electric fields, when applied at specific frequencies, can disrupt cancer cell division and cause cancer cell death. This innovative treatment, Tumor Treating Fields,?is a completely different approach to cancer therapy.
“Nobody understood what I was doing,” Professor Palti said of his early development of Tumor Treating Fields.
