Section 5.1 updated to add the following statements:

An updated OS analysis (15 February 2016) demonstrated an improvement in OS for the combination compared with dabrafenib monotherapy. The 3-year OS estimate for the combination arm was greater than for dabrafenib monotherapy (44% versus 32%, respectively). The median OS for the combination arm was approximately 8 months longer than the median OS for dabrafenib monotherapy (26.7 months versus 18.7 months). These data also demonstrated a reduction in the risk of death (HR=0.75, 95% CI: 0.58, 0.96) which was consistent with the primary OS analysis.
