688 Background: BRAFV600E mutation occurs in 10%-–15% of patients (pts) with mCRC and confers a poor prognosis. After first-line therapy, standard second-line therapies provide limited benefit, with objective response rates (ORRs) < 10%, and overall survival (OS) of 4–6 months (mo). BEACON CRC (NCT02928224) is a 3-arm phase 3 trial of triplet therapy with the BRAF inhibitor ENCO + MEK inhibitor BINI + anti–EGFR antibody CETUX vs ENCO + CETUX vs a control arm (irinotecan/FOLFIRI + CETUX) in pts with BRAFV600E mCRC in the second or third-line setting. A safety lead-in (SLI) of the triplet therapy was conducted in 30 pts prior to initiation of the randomized part of the trial. Previously repor..
