Drug Overview

Encorafenib (Array BioPharma/Pierre Fabre/Ono Pharmaceutical) is a RAF inhibitor with selective anti-proliferative and apoptotic activity in cells expressing BRAF V600E. The drug was developed with the hypothesis that a more potent RAF inhibitor with superior pharmacological properties would maximize the degree and duration of patient response. In preclinical studies, oral dosing of encorafenib resulted in potent and sustained inhibition of the RAS/RAF/MEK/ERK pathway.

The author believes that because half of microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) tumors also harbor mutations in BRAF, the combination of binimetinib (Array BioPharma/Pierre Fabre/Ono Pharmaceutical), encorafenib, and Erbitux (cetuximab; Eli Lilly/Merck KGaA) has the potential to compete with the programmed death-1 (PD-1) inhibitors currently approved for MSI-H patients. However, Array BioPharma will have to demonstrate that the triple regimen is cost-effective and safe in order to make in-roads in this crowded market.
