The study is being conducted to evaluate the effect of rifampin (a strong CYP3A4 inducer) and
rabeprazole (a pH elevating agent) on the PK of dabrafenib (a CYP3A4/CYP2C8 substrate). The
study will be conducted in subjects with BRAF V600 mutation-positive tumors. Data collected
from this study will be used to inform recommendations regarding use of concomitant
medications with dabrafenib and future clinical pharmacologic evaluation of dabrafenib.

- Women of child-bearing potential must be willing to practice acceptable methods of
birth control. Additionally, women of childbearing potential must have a negative
serum pregnancy test within 14 days prior to the first dose of study medication.
- History of another malignancy with exceptions below, or any malignancy with confirmed
activating RAS mutation. Exception: (a) Subjects who have been successfully treated
and are disease-free for 5 years, (b) a history of completely resected non-melanoma
skin cancer, (c) successfully treated in situ carcinoma, (d) CLL in stable remission,
or (e) indolent prostate cancer (definition: clinical stage T1 or T2a, Gleason score
<=6, and PSA <10 nanogram per milliliter [ng/mL]) requiring no or only anti-hormonal
therapy, are eligible.
- Cancer therapy (chemotherapy with delayed toxicity, extensive radiation therapy,
immunotherapy, biologic therapy, or major surgery) or investigational anti-cancer
drugs within the last 3 weeks, or chemotherapy without delayed toxicity within the
last 2 weeks, preceding the first dose of dabrafenib.
- Unresolved toxicity greater than Grade 2 from previous anti-cancer therapy except
- Any serious and/or unstable pre-existing medical, psychiatric disorder or other
conditions that could interfere with subject's safety, obtaining informed consent or
compliance to the study procedures.
- Current use of therapeutic warfarin.
- Any prohibited medication(s) or herbal preparation as described in study protocol or
requires any of these medications during the study.
- Have a known immediate or delayed hypersensitivity reaction or idiosyncrasy to drugs
chemically related to dabrafenib, rabeprazole and rifampin, or excipients that
contraindicates their participation.
- Pregnant or nursing females.
- A history or evidence of cardiovascular risk including any of the following: a QT
interval corrected for heart rate using the Bazett's formula (QTcB) >=480 milliseconds
(msec); a history or evidence of current clinically significant uncontrolled
arrhythmias; a history of acute coronary syndromes (including myocardial infarction or
unstable angina), coronary angioplasty, or stenting within 6 months prior to
randomization; a history or evidence of current >=Class II congestive heart failure
(CHF) as defined by the New York Heart Association (NYHA) guidelines; Abnormal cardiac
valve morphology (>=grade 2) documented by echocardiogram (subjects with grade 1
abnormalities [i.e., mild regurgitation/stenosis] can be entered on study). Subjects
with moderate valvular thickening should not be entered on study.
- Presence of active gastrointestinal (GI) disease or other condition (e.g., small bowel
or large bowel resection) that will interfere significantly with the absorption of
drugs. If clarification is needed as to whether a condition will significantly affect
absorption of drugs, contact the GSK Medical Monitor.
- A history of known Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis B Virus, or Hepatitis
C Virus infection.
- Subjects with brain metastases are excluded if their brain metastases are:
Symptomatic, Treated (surgery, radiation therapy) but not clinically and
radiographically stable one month after local therapy, or asymptomatic and untreated
but >1 centimeter (cm) in the longest dimension. Subjects with small (<=1 cm in the
longest dimension), asymptomatic brain metastases that do not need immediate local
therapy can be enrolled. Subjects on a stable dose of corticosteroids for >1 month, or
those who have been off corticosteroids for at least 2 weeks can be enrolled. Subjects
must also be off of enzyme-inducing anticonvulsants for more than 4 weeks.
