Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Open Label, Multi-center Roll-over Study to Assess Long Term Safety in Patients Who Have Completed a Global Novartis or GSK Sponsored Dabrafenib and/or Trametinib Study
Actual Study Start Date : December 28, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 17, 2023
Estimated Study Completion Date : July 17, 2023

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: dabrafenib and/or trametinib

Patients in this study may receive one of the following treatments received in the parent study which are:

  • Patients who received monotherapy of either of dabrafenib or trametinib solid dose forms
  • Patients who received combination of dabrafenib and trametinib solid dose forms
  • Patients who received suspensions of dabrafenib and/or trametinib
Drug: dabrafenib
dabrafenib is available in capsules (50mg and 75mg) as well as in powder form for Oral Suspension (10 mg/mL dose) and taken twice a day

Drug: trametinib
trametinib is available in tablet (0.125mg, 0.5mg, 2mg dose) as well as in powder form for Oral Solution (0.05mg/mL dose

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Occurences of adverse events to evaluate long term safety and tolerability of dabrafenib, trametinib or combination [ Time Frame: Baseline up to approximately 5 years ]
    Clinical and laboratory assessments should be completed based on the local standard of care and physician practice for routine safety monitoring. More frequent examinations may be performed at the Investigator's discretion if medically indicated. Any abnormalities considered clinically significant, induce clinical signs or symptoms, require concomitant therapy or require changes in treatment constitute an adverse event.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Benefit Assessment by investigator [ Time Frame: Baseline up to approximately 5 years ]
    To evaluate clinical benefit as assessed by the Investigator
