Abstract Text

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.

Trametinib Mekinist GSK1120212 MEK inhibitor (Pan) 22 MEK1 Inhibitor 20 MEK2 Inhibitor 18 Mekinist (trametinib) inhibits MEK 1 and 2, which potentially leads to reduced tumor cell proliferation (PMID: 27956260). Mekinist (trametinib) is FDA approved for melanoma patients harboring BRAF V600E or BRAF V600K mutations, and in combination with Tafinlar (dabrafinib) for BRAF V600E/K-mutant melanoma, BRAF V600E- mutant non-small cell lung cancer, and BRAF V600E-mutant anaplastic thyroid cancer (FDA.gov).
