It this is true the title of your post would be kind of misleading. All the best, Chris July 7, 2014 at 6:03 pm #64947 Catherine PooleKeymaster Chris, You are so right. I guess I assumed if they approved the MEK then it would be in combination. Both the BRAF and MEK are approved, so I assume some oncologists will prescribe both?

I could imagine, however, that the fact that the combo is not approved as such could lead to troubles with insurances but I am not sure about this at all. Guess we will have to wait and see what will happen during the next months.
