        Very encouraging news. I hope to never have brain mets but know in the back of my mind that it is a possibility. I am currently on this BRAF inhibitor through Prof Kefford’s team at Westmead, so this news certainly gives me some hope.

              Sounds very encouraging, I wish my dad was eligible for this drug. But I think prior BRAF users are excluded?
