|Title||Response of metastatic glioma to vemurafenib.|
|Abstract Text||Extraneural metastatic disease of glioma is rare and poses unique therapeutic challenges. Increasingly, the ability to sequence genetic alterations in tumors has allowed for the identification of common oncogenic signatures such as the activating BRAFV600E mutation and may be useful in therapeutic decision making. We report two patients with widespread aggressive gliomas whose tumors were found to express the BRAFV600E mutation and then responded robustly albeit transiently when exposed to vemurafenib. Although both patients succumbed to their disease, our results suggest that targeting BRAF might be appropriate for patients with aggressive gliomas that express this mutation.|

|BRAF V600E||pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma||predicted - sensitive||Vemurafenib||Case Reports/Case Series||Actionable||In a clinical case study, Zelboraf (vemurafenib) treatment resulted in a complete intracranial response 2 months after treatment in a patient with anaplastic pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma harboring BRAF V600E, although the disease progressed 1 month later (PMID: 31386052).||31386052|
|BRAF V600E||glioblastoma||predicted - sensitive||Vemurafenib||Case Reports/Case Series||Actionable||In a clinical case study, Zelboraf (vemurafenib) treatment resulted in a partial response 1 week after treatment in a patient with epithelioid type glioblastoma harboring BRAF V600E, although the patient soon passed due to complications (PMID: 31386052).||31386052|
