Title Potential benefit of treatment with MEK inhibitors and chemotherapy in BRAF-mutated KRAS wild-type pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients: a case report.
Abstract Text This is the first case report of a 60-yr-old female who underwent therapy for metastatic pancreatic cancer with fluorouracil, leucovorin, irinotecan, and oxaliplatin (FOLFIRINOX). Upon the progression of her disease, she was switched to gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel. Per genomic sequencing, her tumor was found to be a KRAS wild-type and BRAF V600E mutation, which then warranted treatment with the MEK1 and MEK2 inhibitor, cobimetinib. The patient has achieved a complete response (CR) to a combination of gemcitabine, nab-paclitaxel, and cobimetinib. It has been 16 mo since the start of the treatment, and the patient continues to demonstrate a complete durable response both serologically and radiologically.


  • 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.
