Relevant Treatment Approaches


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

BRAF V600E/K CDKN2A loss RB1 pos melanoma predicted - sensitive Palbociclib + Vemurafenib Phase Ib/II Actionable In a phase I/II trial, Ibrance (palbociclib) plus Zelboraf (vemurafenib) was safe and resulted in an overall response rate (ORR) of 26.7% (4/15), disease control rate (DCR) of 80% (12/15), and progression-free survival (PFS) of 2.8 mo in metastatic melanoma patients with prior BRAF inhibitor treatment and BRAF V600E/K, CDKN2A loss, and RB1 expression, and an ORR of 27.8% (5/18), DCR of 83.3% (10/18) and 2.8 mo PFS when combined with pts without prior BRAF inhibitor treatment (PMID: 33947696; NCT02202200). 33947696
