    Sorry, another question: Is Braf/MEK effective is you are Braf pos. and NED? I wish I could leave treatment up to my doc? Thank you.

    This really hasn’t been tested in trial, but it would seem to be a good adjuvant (preventing tumors from growing) method. But no one knows yet until some trials are completed. My opinion is that immunotherapy might make a better adjuvant therapy since it works on the immune system and is not a targeted agent such as the BRAF therapies are.
