To the Editor Dr Stupp and colleagues1 reported on the combined use of temozolomide and tumor-treating fields (TTFields) compared with temozolomide alone as adjuvant therapy in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma. The study of 315 patients demonstrated improvement in progression-free survival (3.1 months) and overall survival (4.9 months) in the TTFields-treated cohort (210 patients). The question is whether this study, an interim analysis of the total study population of 695 patients, is sufficiently compelling to change current therapies for glioblastoma.
