NCT02902029 : Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of a Sequencing Schedule of Cobimetinib Plus Vemurafenib Followed by Immunotherapy With an Anti- PD-L1 Antibody in Patients With Unresectable or Metastatic BRAF V600 Mutant Melanoma
PhasePhase 2
AgesMin: 18 Years Max: N/A
Inclusion Criteria:

- Be willing and able to provide written informed consent for the trial.

- Male or female patient being ?18 years of age on day of signing informed consent.

- Histologically confirmed diagnosis of locally advanced, unresectable or metastatic
melanoma AJCC (unresectable stage IIIB, IIIC, IVM1a, IVM1b, or IVM1c) without active
or untreated brain metastases; all known CNS lesions must have been treated with
stereotactic therapy or surgery at least 4 weeks prior to the first dose of trial
treatment AND the patient must be without evidence of clinical or radiographic
disease progression in the CNS for at least 4 weeks prior to the first dose of trial
treatment and any neurologic symptoms must have returned to baseline, the patient
must have no evidence of new or enlarging brain metastases, and the patient must not
have used steroids for at least 3 weeks prior to trial treatment.

- No previous therapy for the advanced or metastatic stage. Prior adjuvant therapy is
permitted (e.g. Interferon, Interleukin-2-therapy, chemo- or radiotherapy). Prior
adjuvant therapy has to be terminated (last dose) at least 28 days before enrolment.
Patients who are in follow-up period of a clinical trial in adjuvant setting and
progressing may be enrolled / randomized.

- Measurable disease, i.e., present with at least one measurable lesion per RECIST,
version 1.1, for the definition of a measureable lesion.

- Presence of BRAF mutation (V600) in tumor tissue.

- Performance status of 0 or 1 on the ECOG Performance Scale.

- Adequate organ function.

- Adequate cardiac function.

- Able to take oral medications.

- Female subject of childbearing potential should have a negative pregnancy test within
72 hours prior to receiving the first dose of study medication.

- Female patients of childbearing potential and male patients with partners of
childbearing potential must agree to always use a highly effective form of
contraception according to CTFG during the course of this study and for at least 6
months after completion of study therapy.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Use of any investigational or non-registered product within the 30 days before

- Diagnosis of immunodeficiency or receiving systemic steroid therapy or any other form
of immunosuppressive therapy within 7 days prior to study Day 1.

- Prior therapy with an anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, anti-PD-L2, anti-CD137, or
anti-Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen-4 (CTLA-4) antibody (including
ipilimumab or any other antibody or drug specifically targeting T-cell co-stimulation
or checkpoint pathways).

- Prior therapy with a BRAF inhibitor (including but not limited to vemurafenib,
dabrafenib, encorafenib and / or MEK inhibitor

- Prior major surgery.

years prior to the study.
