Personalized Medicine Meets Thyroid Cancer: Drug Targeting BRAF Mutation Helps Patients

Researchers from Penn Medicine and other institutions found that treating metastatic thyroid cancer patients harboring a BRAF mutation with the targeted therapy vemurafenib —originally approved for melanoma patients with the mutation—showed promising anti-tumor activity in a third of patients. The results were published in this week’s Lancet Oncology.

Gary H. Lyman, MD, MPH, an internationally recognized oncologist and health economist at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and a member of a committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), is available to discuss biomarker tests for molecularly targeted therapies. Earlier this month he co-authored a New England Journal of Medicine “Perspective” article summarizing the recommendations for biomarker tests, considered “the key to unlocking precision medicine.” These biomarker tests are very important as more and more tests become available to consumers, and both physicians and patients need to be sure the test they are taking is useful and of value specifically to them.
