Dr Jayesh Desai - Royal Melbourne Hospital, Melbourne, Australia

Dr Jayesh Desai speaks with ecancertv at AACR 2016 about his phase Ia trial with RAF-dimer inhibitor BGB283.

BGB283 also acts an EGFR inhibitor, and may have effect on downstream RAS expression. 

Dr Desai's trial reports results from numerous tumour types from patients all expressing RAF/BRAF mutations, using BGB283 as a single agent.

With phase II trials moving ahead, more details can be found in the supporting news article located here.
