Description: GDC-0879 is a highly selective, potent, and orally bioavailable RAF small-molecule inhibitor. In GDC-0879 -treated mice, both cell line- and patient-derived BRAF(V600E) tumors exhibited stronger and more sustained pharmacodynamic inhibition (>90% for 8 hours) and improved survival compared with mutant KRAS-expressing tumors.
