Resistance to BRAF/MEK inhibitor treatment occurs in most patients with advanced BRAFV600-mutant melanoma. Intermittent drug dosing had been proposed as a strategy to circumvent resistance. In a clinical trial published in Nature Medicine, continuous dosing of BRAF/MEK inhibitors produced superior progression-free survival compared to intermittent dosing in BRAFV600-mutant melanoma patients.
