Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part 1: Progression Free Survival (PFS) by Blinded Independent Review Committee (BIRC) in Combo 450 Group as Compared to Vemurafenib Group [ Time Frame: From randomization until documented disease progression (PD), initiation of new anti-cancer therapy, censoring date or death, whichever occurred first (up to 29 months) ]
    PFS was defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of the first documented disease progression (PD) or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first. PFS was determined based on tumor assessment (RECIST version 1.1 criteria) as per BIRC/central review and survival information. If a participant did not had an event at the time of the analysis cut-off or at the start of any new anti-cancer therapy, data was censored at the date of last adequate tumor assessment. PD was defined as at least a 20% increase in the sum of diameter of all measured target lesions, taking as reference the smallest sum of diameter of all target lesions recorded at or after baseline. In addition to the relative increase of 20%, the sum must demonstrate an absolute increase of at least 5 square millimeter (mm^2).

  17. Part 2: Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From randomization until documented disease progression (PD), initiation of new anti-cancer therapy, censoring date or death, whichever occurred first (up to 38 months) ]
  18. Part 1 and Part 2: Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: From randomization until disease progression, censoring date or death, whichever occurred first (up to 29 months for Part 1, excluding Part 1: LGX818 300 mg group; up to 35 months for Part 2 and Part 1 LGX 300 mg group) ]
    ORR, calculated as the percentage of participants with a best overall response of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR). CR was defined as disappearance of all non-nodal target lesions. In addition, any pathological lymph nodes assigned as target lesions must have a reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR was defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameter of all target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of diameters. Results are reported for confirmed BIRC response.

  19. Part 1 and Part 2: Time to Objective Response (TTR) [ Time Frame: From randomization until disease progression, censoring date or death, whichever occurred first (up to 29 months for Part 1, excluding Part 1: LGX818 300 mg group; up to 35 months for Part 2 and Part 1 LGX 300 mg group) ]
    TTR was the time between date of randomization until first documented response of CR or PR. Participants who did not achieve a PR or CR were censored at the last adequate tumor assessment date when they did not have a PFS event or at maximum follow-up (i.e. first patient first visit [FPFV] to last patient last visit [LPLV] used for the analysis) when they had a PFS event. CR was defined as disappearance of all non-nodal target lesions. In addition, any pathological lymph nodes assigned as target lesions must have a reduction in short axis to <10 mm. PR was defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameter of all target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of diameters. TTR was estimated in the treatment arms using a Kaplan-Meier method. TTR was based on central review.

  20. Part 1 and Part 2: Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: From randomization until disease progression or death, whichever occurred first (up to 29 months for Part 1, excluding Part 1: LGX818 300 mg group; up to 35 months for Part 2 and Part 1 LGX 300 mg group) ]
    DCR was calculated as the percentage of participants with a best overall response (BOR) of CR, PR, or stable disease (SD). CR was defined as disappearance of all non-nodal target lesions. In addition, any pathological lymph nodes assigned as target lesions must have a reduction in short axis to <10 mm. PR was defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameter of all target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of diameters. Two sets of DCR were considered, one for confirmed and one for unconfirmed responses. Results are reported for confirmed and unconfirmed responses combined. SD: Neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR or CR nor an increase in lesions which would qualify for PD. DCR was based on central review.

  21. Part 1 and Part 2: Duration of Response (DOR) [ Time Frame: From randomization until disease progression, censoring date or death, whichever occurred first (up to 29 months for Part 1, excluding Part 1: LGX818 300 mg group; up to 35 months for Part 2 and Part 1 LGX 300 mg group) ]
    DOR was calculated, as the time from the date of first documented response (CR or PR) to the first documented progression or death due to underlying cancer. DOR was estimated for responders (i.e. participants achieving at least once CR or PR) only using a Kaplan-Meier method. CR was defined as disappearance of all non-nodal target lesions. In addition, any pathological lymph nodes assigned as target lesions must have a reduction in short axis to <10 mm. PR was defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameter of all target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of diameters. If a participant with a CR or PR had no progression or death due to underlying disease, the participant was censored at the date of last adequate tumor assessment. Results are based on confirmed BIRC response.

  22. Part 1 and Part 2: Time to Definitive 10% Deterioration in the Function Assessment Cancer Therapy-melanoma (FACT-M) Subscale [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to date of event or death due to any cause, which ever occurred first (up to 29 months for Part 1, excluding Part 1: LGX818 300 mg group; up to 35 months for Part 2 and Part 1 LGX 300 mg group) ]

Other items include physical, functional and social/family well-being (7 items each),emotional well-being (6 items),surgery specific concerns related to melanoma(8 items,not included in this study). Each item range from 0(not at all) to 4(very much), combined to produce subscale scores.Total score range for FACT-M excluding surgery specific items is 0 to 172,higher scores represent better quality of life.Melanoma subscale score range from 0(worst response) to 64(best response),higher score indicated better quality of life. Time to definitive 10% deterioration:time from date of randomization to date of event with at least 10% relative to baseline worsening of corresponding scale score with no later improvement or death due to any cause.

  23. Part 1 and Part 2: Time to Definitive 10% Deterioration in the Global Health Status Score of the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer's Core Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-C30) [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to date of event or death due to any cause, which ever occurred first (maximum up to 29 months for Part 1, excluding Part 1: LGX818 300 mg group; up to 35 months for Part 2 and Part 1 LGX 300 mg group) ]
    EORTC QLQ-C30 is 30 item questionnaire composed of 5 multi-item functional subscales (physical, role, cognitive, emotional, social functioning), 3 multi-item symptom scales (fatigue, nausea/vomiting, and pain), global health/quality of life (QOL) subscale and 6 single items assessing other cancer related symptoms (dyspnea, sleep disturbance, appetite, diarrhea, constipation and financial impact of cancer). It employed twenty-eight 4 point Likert scales with responses from "not at all" to "very much" and two 7 point Likert scales for global health and overall QOL. Global health status scale score ranged from 0 to 100. Higher score represented better level of functioning. Time to definitive 10% deterioration: time from date of randomization to date of event with at least 10% relative to baseline worsening of corresponding scale score with no later improvement or death due to any cause.

Part 1 and Part 2: Change From Baseline in EuroQoL-5 Dimension-5 Level (EQ-5D-5L) Index Score at Day 1 of Cycle 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25 and End of Treatment Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1 of Cycle 1), Day 1 of Cycle 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25 and end of treatment visit (within14 days after the last dose of study drug) ]
    EQ-5D-5L is a standardized participant completed questionnaire that measures health status in terms of a single index value or utility score. EQ-5D-5L consisted of two components: a health state profile (descriptive system) and a visual analogue scale (VAS) in which participants rate their overall health status from 0 (worst imaginable) to 100 (best imaginable), where higher scores indicated better health status. EQ-5D health state profile is comprised of 5 dimensions: mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression. Each dimension has 5 response levels: 1=no problems, 2=slight problems, 3=moderate problems, 4=severe problems and 5=extreme problems. EQ-5D-5L health status index score range between 0 to 1. Higher score indicated better health status.

Part 1 and Part 2: Change From Baseline in Global Health Status Score of EORTC QLQ-C30 at Day 1 of Cycle 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25 and End of Treatment Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1 of Cycle 1), Day 1 of Cycle 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25 and end of treatment visit (within14 days after the last dose of study drug) ]
    EORTC QLQ-C30 contains 30 items and is composed of multi-item and single-item measures. These include 5 functional scales (physical, role, emotional, cognitive and social functioning), 3 symptom scales (fatigue, nausea/vomiting, and pain), 6 single items (dyspnea, insomnia, appetite loss, constipation, diarrhea and financial impact) and a global health status/quality of life (QOL) scale. The questionnaire employs 28 4-point Likert scales with responses from "not at all" to "very much" and two 7-point Likert scales for global health and overall QOL. Responses to all items converted to 0 to 100 scale. For functional and global QOL scales, higher scores represent a better level of functioning/QOL. For symptom-oriented scales, a higher score represents more severe symptoms.
