Dabrafenib (trade name Tafinlar) is a drug for the treatment of cancers associated with a mutated version of the gene BRAF.

Dabrafenib acts as an inhibitor of the associated enzyme B-Raf, which plays a role in the regulation of cell growth.

Dabrafenib has clinical activity with a manageable safety profile in clinical trials of phase 1 and 2 in patients with BRAF(V600)-mutated metastatic melanoma.
