Title Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer with BRAF and P53 Mutations: Case Report of Therapeutic Response to Doublet Targeted Therapy.
Abstract Text We report on the clinical history of a 49-year-old female with metastatic pancreatic cancer. She was initially treated with standard chemotherapy as per current guidelines. She was found to have both a BRAF and P53 mutation, and received dabrafenib and trametinib with deep responses, both radiographically and biochemically (CA19-9). Her response has been more clinically relevant than responses in previous case reports of patients with BRAF-positive pancreatic cancer treated with targeted therapy. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report showing a dramatic therapeutic response to combination therapy with dabrafenib and trametinib in metastatic pancreatic cancer.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. 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 on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "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.

TP53 C176R missense unknown TP53 C176R lies within the DNA-binding domain of the Tp53 protein (PMID: 22713868). C176R has been identified in the scientific literature (PMID: 33250737, PMID: 37379264), but has not been biochemically characterized and therefore, its effect on Tp53 protein function is unknown (PubMed, Sep 2023).

BRAF V600E TP53 C176R pancreatic adenocarcinoma predicted - sensitive Dabrafenib + Trametinib Case Reports/Case Series Actionable In a clinical case study, a patient with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma harboring BRAF V600E and TP53 C176R was treated with the combination of Tafinlar (dabrafenib) and Mekinist (trametinib) and achieved radiographic and biochemical responses with stabilization or reduction of lesions in the pancreas, lung, and liver, and remained on treatment despite progression of a single liver lesion after 8 months (PMID: 33250737). 33250737
