Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
Number of Participants With BRAF V600E Mutation-positive Melanoma With Overall Intracranial Response (OIR), as Assessed by the Investigator - OIR is defined as the number of participants whose intracranial response was a confirmed complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) assessed by investigators using modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST), version 1.1. CR is defined as disappearance of all lesions. PR is defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of the diameters of target lesions, taking as a reference, the Baseline sum of the diameters (e.g., percent change from Baseline). For the primary analysis, OIR was measured when all participants in both treatment arms had two post-Baseline disease assessments. Participants who had an intracranial response of not evaluable or a missing response were treated as non-responders. Confirmation assessments were to be performed no less than 4 weeks after the criteria for response were initially met and may have been performed at the next protocol scheduled assessment.

Secondary outcome [1] 0 0
Number of Participants With V600E Mutation-positive Melanoma With a Best Overall Response (OR) of CR or PR, as Assessed by the Investigator - OR is defined as the number of participants achieving either a CR (the disappearance of all target lesions) or PR (at least a 30% decrease in the sum of the diameters of target lesions, taking as a reference, the Baseline sum of the diameters [e.g., percent change from Baseline]) per modified RECIST, version 1.1. To determine the OR, the extracranial response was combined with the intracranial response. Confirmation assessments were to be performed no less than 4 weeks after the criteria for response were initially met and may have been performed at the next protocol-scheduled assessment. Participants who had an overall response of not evaluable or a missing response were treated as non-responders.

In addition, the sum must have an absolute increase from nadir of 5 millimeters (mm). If a participant received subsequent anti-cancer therapy prior to the date of documented PD/death, the participant was censored at the last adequate assessment and the visit level response was CR (disappearance of all target lesions), PR (at least a 30% decrease in the sum of the diameters of target lesions, taking as a reference, the baseline sum of the diameters [e.g., percent change from Baseline]), or stable disease (SD: neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for PD.

Per RECIST, version 1.1, CR is defined as the disappearance of all lesions. PR is defined as a >=30% decrease in the sum of the diameters of target lesions, taking as a reference, the Baseline (BL) sum of the diameters (e.g., percent change from BL). Stable disease is defined as neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for progressive disease (PD). PD is defined as a >=20% increase in the sum of the diameters of target lesions, taking as a reference, the smallest sum of diameters recorded since the treatment started (e.g., percent change from nadir [smallest sum of diameters recorded since treatment start]). In addition, the sum must have an absolute increase from nadir of 5 millimeters. Not evaluable: cannot be classified by a preceding definition.

Summary
Brief summary
This study is designed to assess the efficacy, pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of
an oral, twice daily dose of 150 mg GSK2118436 administered to subjects with BRAF V600E or
V600K mutation-positive metastatic melanoma to the brain. Subjects in Cohort A will not have
received any local brain therapy, and subjects in Cohort B will have received prior local
therapy for brain metastases. Subjects will continue on treatment until disease progression,
death, or unacceptable adverse event.
