Title Vemurafenib Combined With Trametinib Significantly Benefits the Survival of a Patient With Stage IV Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma With BRAF V600E Mutation: A Case Report.
Journal Frontiers in oncology

Abstract Text Vemurafenib and trametinib have a lot of successful experiences in the treatment of unresectable or metastatic melanoma with BRAF V600E mutation. However, they have not been reported in the treatment of advanced pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). We report here a 66-year-old male who was diagnosed as PDAC with multiple metastases of the abdominal cavity and liver according to pathological examination. After three cycles of gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel (GA) regimen chemotherapy, the liver metastasis of the patient progressed, and the patient could not continue to receive chemotherapy because of poor physical condition. BRAF V600E mutation was found by genetic detection in this patient, so targeted therapy with vemurafenib combined with trametinib was performed and the follow-up period was up to 24 months. To the best of our knowledge, this is a rare report that patients with stage IV PDAC with BRAF V600E mutation can receive significantly survival benefits from targeted therapy with vemurafenib combined with trametinib. This report provides experience for the use of these two drugs in patients with advanced PDAC.


  • 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"


  • 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.
