Title Triple Therapy Improves Colorectal Cancer Response.
Abstract Text Findings from a phase I/II study indicate a higher response rate among patients with BRAF-mutant metastatic colorectal cancer treated with an EGFR inhibitor alongside dual, as opposed to single-level, MAPK blockade. Panitumumab combined with trametinib and dabrafenib only modestly increased median progression-free survival, however; a short-lived decrease in responders' BRAF V600E mutant allele fraction and the emergence of RAS mutations may have been contributing factors.


  • 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 mutant colorectal cancer predicted - sensitive Dabrafenib + Panitumumab + Trametinib Phase Ib/II Actionable In a Phase I/II trial, treatment with the triple combination of Tafinlar (dabrafenib), Mekinist (trametinib), and Vectibix (panitumumab) resulted in an objective response rate (ORR) of 21% and median progression-free survival (mPFS) of 4.2 mo, compared with 0% ORR and mPFS of 2.6 mo with Mekinist (trametinib) plus Vectibix (panitumumab), and 10% ORR and mPFS of 3.5 mo with Tafinlar (dabrafenib) plus Vectibix (panitumumab) in patients with BRAF-mutant colorectal cancer (PMID: 27770002; NCT01750918). 27770002
