Title Sensitivity to dabrafenib and trametinib treatments in patients with non-small-cell cancer harboring BRAF compound mutations: A pooled analysis of BRAF p.V600E-positive advanced non-small-cell lung cancer.
Abstract Text The present study clarified the sensitivity of the BRAF tyrosine kinase inhibitor mechanism in patients with BRAF compound mutation and predicted the sensitivity using molecular dynamics simulation.We examined 16 BRAF tumors with p.V600E-positive non-small-cell lung cancer.One patient (6.2%) had a BRAF p.V600E and p.K601_W604 compound mutation with a good clinical response to dabrafenib and trametinib. Molecular dynamics simulation also complemented the effect.The combination of a genetic analysis and computational simulation model may help predict the sensitivity for dabrafenib in cases with a rare BRAF compound mutation. The construction of a genomic and simulation fused database is important for the development of personalized medicine in this field.


  • 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 K601_W604del deletion unknown BRAF K601_W604del results in the deletion of four amino acids in the protein kinase domain of the Braf protein from amino acids 601 to 604 ( K601_W604del has been identified in the scientific literature (PMID: 35598548), but has not been biochemically characterized and therefore, its effect on Braf protein function is unknown (PubMed, Dec 2023).
