BRIM8: A Study of Vemurafenib Adjuvant Therapy in Patients With Resected Cutaneous BRAF Mutant Melanoma
This multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of vemurafenib in participants with completely resected, cutaneous BRAF mutation-positive melanoma at high risk for recurrence. Participants will be randomized to receive oral doses of vemurafenib 960 milligrams (mg) twice daily or matching placebo. The anticipated time on study treatment is 52 weeks.
