What Is Zelboraf and What Is It Prescribed For?
Zelboraf is the brand name for the drug vemurafenib. Made and sold by Swiss pharmaceutical giant, Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., this prescription medication is used to treat metastatic melanoma. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Zelboraf on August 17, 2011. It comes in 240 mg film-coated tablets.
Zelboraf is designed to treat the most aggressive form of skin cancer, BRAF V600E mutation positive unrestrictable or metastatic melanoma. People who have a mutated BRAF gene, BRAF V600E, risk increased production of a certain chemical called BRAF serinetheonine kinase, which can cause cancer cells to grow and spread rapidly. Zelboraf inhibits the production of this chemical, halting the spread of melanoma.
