|Title||Impressive and durable clinical responses obtained with dabrafenib and trametinib in low-grade serous ovarian cancer harbouring a BRAF V600E mutation.|
|Abstract Text||Low-grade serous ovarian cancer (LGSOC) is now considered a different entity from high-grade serous ovarian cancer. The chemoresistance inherent to this type of ovarian cancer narrows the therapeutic options, especially in the recurrent setting. It is thought that the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway plays a significant role in the pathogenesis of these tumours, and about 2 to 20% of LGSOC harbour a BRAF mutation. Here we present a case report of two patients with a BRAF V600E mutation that achieved sustained clinical responses with combination treatment with dabrafenib (BRAF inhibitor) and trametinib (MEK inhibitor).|

|BRAF V600E||ovarian serous carcinoma||predicted - sensitive||Dabrafenib + Trametinib||Case Reports/Case Series||Actionable||In a clinical case study, Tafinlar (dabrafenib) and Mekinist (trametinib) combination treatment resulted in a partial response lasting at least 2.5 years in one patient with low grade serous ovarian carcinoma harboring BRAF V600E, and resulted in a complete metabolic response after 4 months of treatment in a second patient (PMID: 35242981).||35242981|
