Title Clinical Response of Advanced Lung Adenocarcinoma with Class III BRAF G466V Missense Mutation to Dabrafenib and Trametinib: A Case Report.
Abstract Text BRAF is a pivotal driver gene in cancer development. Based on this, the combination of dabrafenib and trametinib was approved for treating NSCLC patients with BRAFV600E mutations. However, the majority of BRAF mutations in lung cancer are non-V600E variants, particularly class III mutants, which currently lack targeted therapeutic options and result in unfavorable clinical outcomes.We present a case of advanced lung adenocarcinoma with a class III BRAFG466V mutation. The patient experienced significant pleural and pericardial effusion, leading to chest tightness and an inability to lie flat. Severe pain and limited mobility from lumbar destruction seriously affected the patient's quality of life. Due to the patient's intolerance to chemotherapy, dabrafenib and trametinib combination therapy was chosen. After three months of targeted therapy, the patient's overall condition significantly improved, enabling self-care, and achieving partial response (PR) as an indicator of treatment efficacy.The combination therapy of dabrafenib and trametinib demonstrates remarkable clinical benefits for lung adenocarcinoma patients with the BRAFG466V mutation. Targeted therapy should be considered for patients with BRAF class III mutations, especially those in poor general condition and may not tolerate chemotherapy.


  • 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.
