Molecular Profile BRAF V600E
Therapy Vemurafenib
Indication/Tumor Type thyroid gland papillary carcinoma
Response Type sensitive


  • 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 thyroid gland papillary carcinoma sensitive Vemurafenib Phase II Actionable In a Phase II trial, Zelboraf (vemurafenib) treatment resulted in a partial response in 38.5% (10/26) of patients with metastatic or unresectable, radioactive iodine-refractory papillary thyroid carcinoma harboring BRAF V600E that were multikinase inhibitor-naive, with a disease control rate of 73%, and a median progression-free survival of 18.2 months (PMID: 27460442; NCT01286753). 27460442
BRAF V600E thyroid gland papillary carcinoma sensitive Vemurafenib Case Reports/Case Series Actionable In a Phase I trial, Zelboraf (vemurafenib) treatment resulted in a complete or partial response in three papillary thyroid carcinoma patients harboring BRAF V600E, with one patient having a response that lasted for 8 months who remained progression-free for 12 months, and another two patients having a stable disease that lasted for 11 and 13 months, respectively (PMID: 20818844; NCT00215605). 20818844
BRAF V600E thyroid gland papillary carcinoma sensitive Vemurafenib Guideline Actionable Zelboraf (vemurafenib) is included in guidelines for patients with recurrent, advanced, or metastatic thyroid papillary carcinoma harboring BRAF V600E for whom clinical trials are not available or appropriate ( detail...
