Section 5.1 updated to include the following:

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.

 

An updated OS analysis (15 July 2016) demonstrated improvement in OS for the combination compared with vemurafenib monotherapy. The 3-year OS estimate was 45% for combination therapy and 31% for vemurafenib. The median OS for the combination arm was approximately 8 months longer than the median OS for vemurafenib monotherapy (26.1 months versus 17.8 months). These data also demonstrated a reduction in the risk of death (HR=0.68, 95% CI: 0.56, 0.83) which was consistent with the primary OS analysis.
Section 5.2 updated to update the in vitro evaluation of drug interaction potential information for BCRP and OCT transporters located in section 5.2 based on the conclusions of study reports 2014N220059 and reports 2015N235499.
