BRAF gene plays an important role in signal transduction involving cell proliferation, by regulating various kinds of cell physiological activities, such as growth, division , death and so on.

BRAF gene is the second transmitter in the EGFR signaling pathway. When BRAF gene mutations  occurs, the signal pathway will be permanently auto-activated, resulting in excessive cell proliferation  and differentiation,  thus, which may lead to EGFR-TKI drug ineffectiveness. Mutations of BRAF occurred  in many cancers such as malignant melanoma, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, thyroid cancer, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer and so on.

Clinical Practice Guideline for colorectal cancer (NCCN) (2016 V2 Edition) suggested that the status of KRAS should be detected while using the targeted drugs such as Cetuximab and Panitumumab. If there is no mutation in KRAS, a further detection of BRAF gene status should be considered.

Detection Significance

● Detection of B-raf gene status can help monitor the drug efficacy/resistance, thus, avoid unnecessary treatments and save treatment cost of the patients.

 Patients with B-raf gene mutation will be resistant to Gifetini, Osetini, cetuximab treatments, therefore, a detection of gene status before taking drugs will assist the clinicians to select suitable targeted drugs and minimize the waste of medical resources.

 Guide the selection of suitable targeted drugs for patients with B-raf mutation.

Applicable People

 A detection of B-raf gene status can be used to select targeted drugs (such as Rofetini) for patients with

some kinds of tumor (such as melanoma) before starting the targeted treatments.

A detection of B-raf gene status can be used to predict drug resistance before taking EGFR-TKI drugs.
