Relevant Treatment Approaches

Filtering

  • 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"

Sorting

  • 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 NRAS Q61K melanoma sensitive XL888 Preclinical Actionable In a preclinical study, treatment with XL888 resulted in increased apoptosis and decreased growth of Zelboraf (vemurafenib)-resistant melanoma cells harboring BRAF V600E along with NRAS Q61K in cell culture (PMID: 22351686). 22351686
BRAF V600E NRAS Q61K melanoma sensitive Trametinib + Dabrafenib Preclinical Actionable In a preclinical study, Talfinlar (dabrafenib) in combination with Mekinist (trametinib) resulted in improved growth inhibition of melanoma cell lines harboring BRAF V600E and NRAS Q61K in culture, compared to either agent alone (PMID: 22389471). 22389471
BRAF V600E NRAS Q61K melanoma resistant Dabrafenib Preclinical Actionable In a preclinical study, human melanoma cell lines harboring BRAF V600E expressing NRAS Q61K were resistant to Tafinlar (dabrafenib) mediated growth inhibition and retained MEK and ERK signaling (PMID: 22389471). 22389471
BRAF V600E NRAS Q61K melanoma resistant Vemurafenib Preclinical Actionable In a preclinical study, a NRAS Q61K mutation conferred resistance to Zelboraf (vemurafenib) in melanoma cells harboring BRAF V600E in culture (PMID: 21107323). 21107323
BRAF V600E NRAS Q61K lung adenocarcinoma predicted - resistant Trametinib + Dabrafenib Clinical Study Actionable In a clinical case study, a breast cancer patient with metastatic lung adenocarcinoma harboring BRAF V600E developed progressive disease after initial response to Talfinlar (dabrafenib) and Mekinist (trametinib) combination therapy, NRAS Q61K was identified as an acquired mutation after disease progression (PMID: 29631033). 29631033
