Molecular Profile BRAF V600E
Therapy Vemurafenib
Indication/Tumor Type colorectal cancer
Response Type no benefit


  • 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 colorectal cancer no benefit Vemurafenib Phase II Actionable In a Phase II trial, Zelboraf (vemurafenib) did not demonstrate meaningful clinical activity as a single agent, resulted in partial response in 5% (1/21) and stable disease in 33% (7/21) of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer harboring BRAF V600E (PMID: 26460303; NCT00405587). 26460303
BRAF V600E colorectal cancer no benefit Vemurafenib Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, colorectal cancer cell lines harboring BRAF V600E demonstrated decreased response to Zelboraf (vemurafenib) in culture (PMID: 27312529). 27312529
BRAF V600E colorectal cancer no benefit Vemurafenib Preclinical - Cell line xenograft Actionable In a preclinical study, colorectal cancer cell lines were not sensitive to growth inhibition by Zelboraf (vemurafenib) in culture or xenograft models, due to feedback activation of EGFR signaling (PMID: 22281684). 22281684
