Title BRAF V600E Mutation in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer: A Case Report and Literature Review.
Abstract Text The B-Raf proto-oncogene (BRAFV600E) gene mutation has been identified in a variety of malignancies, but no evidence of the efficacy of vemurafenib treatment in BRAFV600E mutant breast cancer (BC) has been reported.We reported a 60-year-old woman with confirmed triple-negative BC with BRAFV600E mutation. Progression-free survival (PFS) for first-line chemotherapy was 7 months. The patient received vemurafenib and albumin-bound paclitaxel as second-line therapy, exhibiting regression of some pulmonary metastatic lesions with concomitant progression of other lesions, and achieved 4.4 months of PFS. Genetic testing of the progressed pulmonary lesion revealed the BRAFV600E mutation, and acquired new mutations and AR amplification. The patient ultimately died of multiple organ failure and achieved 12 months of overall survival.The BRAFV600E mutation may be a potential prognostic factor and therapeutic target for BC.


  • 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.

BRAF V600E triple-receptor negative breast cancer predicted - sensitive Nab-paclitaxel + Vemurafenib Case Reports/Case Series Actionable In a clinical case study, Zelboraf (vemurafenib) and Abraxane (nab-paclitaxel) combination treatment resulted in regression of some metastatic pulmonary lesions and a progression-free survival of 4.4 months in a patient with triple-negative breast cancer harboring BRAF V600E, but a biopsy in lesions that progressed showed acquisition of additional mutations in PDGFRB, NF2, GRM3, MLH1, FOXA1, LRP1B, and AR amplification (PMID: 34818649). 34818649
