Mutations in the BRAF gene predict sensitivity to a novel class of cancer drugs

r proteins that are frequently mutated in human cancer," said Dr. David Solit, the study's first author and a medical oncologist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering who is also a member of Dr. Rosen's laboratory. This project, an outgrowth of the Human Genome Project, called the Cancer Genome Project, has the goal of identifying the causative mutations that cause human cancers.

"This represents what we believe will be the first of a series of new drugs that specifically target cancer cells that contain mutations identified by the Cancer Genome sequencing effort," said Dr. Solit. "The hope is that these new targeted therapies will be more effective and less toxic than traditional chemotherapies."

The study's other researchers were Christine A. Pratilas, Ayana Sawai, Andrea Basso, Qing Ye, Jose M. Lobo, and Yuhong She, all of Memorial Sloan-Kettering; Drs. Levi A.Galloway, Gad Getz, Todd R. Golub, and William R. Sellers of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard; Dr. Iman Osman of New York University Medical College; and Dr. Judith Sebolt-Leopold of Pfizer Global Research and Development.
