Abstract 2280


Combining BRAF and MEK inhibitors is a standard of care in BRAF-mutated advanced melanoma patients. Dabrafenib (D) and Trametinib (T) have led to a 3-year overall survival (OS) rate around 44% in patients without active brain metastases (BMs) at enrollment. Recently, T received French Health Authority approval but little information is available in D+T combination use in real life, especially with active BMs patients. We report the first results of efficacy and tolerance in real life patients treated with D+T, including BMs, within national French MelBase cohort.


MelBase is a French multicentric clinical biobank dedicated to the prospective follow-up (FU) of adults with unresectable stage III or stage IV melanoma. Since March 2013, 1168 patients were included (26 centers). Available data were collected (April 2017) and analyzed (demography, OS, progression-free survival (PFS), response rate, safety).


2 groups are presented: all patients treated with D+T (g1) and patients with BMs treated with D+T (g2). The characteristics at baseline are: - g1 (n = 135): mean age 57 years, PS 0-1 87%, elevated LDH 33%, BRAF V600E mutated 78%, brain metastases 29%, treated in first line 79%. After median FU 11.2 months, median OS and PFS were respectively 17.8 months (95%CI: 15.5-Not Reached (NR)) and 8.1 months (95%CI: 6.2-11.2). Best overall response (BORR) was 63% and disease control rate (DCR) 79%. - g2 (n = 39): mean age 55 years, PS 0-1 87%, elevated LDH 46%, BRAF V600E mutated 72%, treated in first line 73%. After median FU 10.3 months, median OS and PFS were respectively 15.5 months (95%CI: 13.3-NR) and 5.9 months (95%CI: 4.3-10.7). BORR was 56% and DCR 72%.


We report the first real life D+T data in France. Even though our results still need to mature with a longer FU, BORR is similar to COMBI-d updated data (63% g1 versus 69%). In addition, our results point out for the first time D+T efficacy in patients with active BMs. Indeed the combination appears more efficient in patients with BMs compared to D alone in already published clinical data (BREAK-MB).
