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).


  • 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 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
