Nearly 7 in 10 patients with locally advanced or metastatic BRAF V600E–mutated anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) responded to treatment with the combination of the BRAF inhibitor dabrafenib (Tafinlar) and the MEK inhibitor trametinib (Mekinist).
The most common AEs of any grade in the ATC cohort were fatigue (44%), pyrexia (31%), and nausea (31%). The most common grade 3/4 AE was anemia (13%). Three patients with ATC experienced treatment-related serious AEs.
