The treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) pts with BRAF-mut tumors is a major challenge for physicians. They account for < 10% of mCRC, correlate with poor prognosis, and respond poorly to standard first-line regimens including chemotherapy doublets (2-CT) plus a targeted agent. Guidelines suggest treating BRAF-mut mCRC with a triplet CT regimen (3-CT; fluorouracil, irinotecan, and oxaliplatin combination) plus BEV, based on a subgroup analysis of the TRIBE study. In this analysis of 16 mCRC pts with BRAF-mut tumors, median PFS (mPFS) and OS (mOS) were 7.5 and 19 months (mo), respectively. Since the impact of 3-CT plus CET on outcomes in pts with BRAF-mut tumors is largely unexplored, we aimed to assess this subpopulation in the METHEP2 trial.
