Relapse-free Survival (RFS) [ Time Frame: Approximately 3.5 years ]
Recurrence-free survival was defined as the time from randomization to disease recurrence (local recurrence, distant recurrence, second primary melanoma), or death from any cause.
Relapse-free survival (RFS) in subjects [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of first documented recurrence or date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed for an average of 24 months ]
The efficacy of dabrafenib and trametinib combination therapy compared to placebo was evaluated by measuring RFS. Relapse Free Survival is defined as the time from randomization to disease recurrence or death from any cause. Recurrence of or death from the same cancer and all deaths from other causes are events. Treatment emergent malignancy(ies) other than second melanomas will not be considered as events, and loss to follow-up is censored. Subjects without RFS events will be censored at the last assessment

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: approximately 3.5 years ]
    Overall survival (OS) of dabrafenib and trametinib as a combination therapy versus placebo
  • Distant Metastasis-free Survival [ Time Frame: approximately 3.5 years ]
    Distant metastasis-free survival (DMFS) of dabrafenib and trametinib as a combination therapy versus placebo. In the DMFS analysis, the first occurrence of distant metastasis or death (if it occurred before documented recurrence) was counted as an event.
  • Freedom From Relapse [ Time Frame: approximately 3.5 years ]
    Freedom from relapse (FFR) of dabrafenib and trametinib as a combination therapy versus placebo. In the FFR analysis, local or distant recurrence or a new primary melanoma were counted as events, and patients who died of causes other than melanoma or treatment-related toxicity were censored.
  • Overall survival (OS) of dabrafenib and trametinib as a combination therapy versus placebo [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of death, assessed for an average of 24 months ]
    OS is defined as the interval from randomization to the date of death, irrespective of the cause of death; subjects still alive will be censored at the date of the last contact
  • Distant metastasis-free survival (DMFS) of dabrafenib and trametinib as a combination therapy versus placebo [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of first documented distant metastasis or date of death, whichever came first, assessed for an average of 24 months ]
    DMFS is defined as the interval from randomization to the date of first distant metastasis or date of death, whichever occurs first. Subjects alive and without distant metastasis are censored at the date of last assessment
  • Freedom from relapse (FFR) of dabrafenib and trametinib as a combination therapy versus placebo [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of first documented local or distant recurrence, assessed for an average of 24 months ]
    FFR is defined as interval from randomization to local or distant recurrence with censoring of subjects dying from causes other than melanoma or treatment-related toxicity at the date of death. Subjects alive without recurrence or with second primary cancers will be censored at the date of last assessment
  • Safety of dabrafenib and trametinib as a combination therapy in the overall study population [ Time Frame: Duration of the study (upto 24 months) ]
    Safety will be measured by clinical assessments including vital signs and physical examinations, 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECG), echocardiogram (ECHO), eye exams, chemistry and hematology laboratory values, and adverse events (AEs)

Dabrafenib With Trametinib in the Adjuvant Treatment of High-risk BRAF V600 Mutation-positive Melanoma (COMBI-AD).
COMBI-AD: A Phase III Randomized Double Blind Study of Dabrafenib (GSK2118436) in COMBInation With Trametinib (GSK1120212) Versus Two Placebos in the ADjuvant Treatment of High-risk BRAF V600 Mutation-positive Melanoma After Surgical Resection
This was a two-arm, randomized, double-blind Phase III study of dabrafenib in combination with trametinib versus two placebos in the adjuvant treatment of melanoma after surgical resection. Patients with completely resected, histologically confirmed, BRAF V600E/K mutation-positive, high-risk [Stage IIIa (lymph node metastasis >1 mm), IIIb or IIIc] cutaneous melanoma were screened for eligibility. Subjects were randomized to receive either dabrafenib (150 milligram (mg) twice daily [BID]) and trametinib (2 mg once daily [QD]) combination therapy or two placebos for 12 months.

This was a two-arm, randomized, double-blind, multi-center, international phase III study of dabrafenib in combination with trametinib versus two matching placebos in the adjuvant treatment of melanoma after surgical resection. Patients with completely resected, histologically confirmed, BRAF V600E/K mutation-positive, high-risk [Stage IIIa (lymph node metastasis >1 mm), IIIb or IIIc] cutaneous melanoma were screened for eligibility. Subjects were randomized to receive either dabrafenib (150 milligram (mg) twice daily [BID]) and trametinib (2 mg once daily [QD]). None of the patients had undergone previous systemic anticancer treatment or radiotherapy for melanoma. All the patients had undergone completion lymphadenectomy with no clinical or radiographic evidence of residual regional node disease within 12 weeks before randomization, had recovered from definitive surgery, and had an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status of 0 or 1. BRAF V600 mutation status was confirmed in primary-tumor or lymph-node tissue by a central reference laboratory. All the patients provided written informed consent.

The primary end point was recurrence-free survival, Overall survival, as the key secondary end point, was to be tested in a hierarchical manner only if the primary end point met the criteria for significance. The overall survival analysis used a preplanned three-look Lan-DeMets group sequential design with an O'Brien-Fleming-type boundary, which was used to determine the significance threshold for the first interim overall survival analysis (two-sided P=0.000019).

Disease assessments included clinical examination and imaging by means of computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, or both.) Imaging was performed every 3 months during the first 24 months, then every 6 months until disease recurrence or the completion of the trial. Follow-up for survival began after recurrence and continued through the end of the trial. Adverse events and laboratory values were assessed at screening, on the date of randomization, at least once per month through month 12, and at every visit for disease-recurrence assessment after month 12. Adverse events and laboratory values were graded according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, version 4.0.
