Enrollment Eligibility

Key Inclusion Criteria:

for at least 6 weeks, or must agree to take appropriate precautions to avoid pregnancy
from screening through follow-up if of childbearing potential

screening through follow-up
Key Exclusion Criteria:
- Prior treatment with any RAF inhibitor, MEK inhibitor, cetuximab, panitumumab or other
epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors
- Prior irinotecan hypersensitivity or toxicity that would suggest an inability to
tolerate irinotecan 180 mg/m2 every 2 weeks

- History or current evidence of retinal vein occlusion or current risk factors for
retinal vein occlusion (e.g., uncontrolled glaucoma or ocular hypertension, history of
hyperviscosity or hypercoagulability syndromes)
- Known history of acute or chronic pancreatitis
- History of chronic inflammatory bowel disease or Crohn's disease requiring medical
intervention (immunomodulatory or immunosuppressive medications or surgery) ≤12 months
prior to randomization
- Uncontrolled blood pressure despite medical treatment
- Impaired GI function or disease that may significantly alter the absorption of
encorafenib or binimetinib (e.g., ulcerative diseases, uncontrolled vomiting,
malabsorption syndrome, small bowel resection with decreased intestinal absorption)
- Concurrent or previous other malignancy within 5 years of study entry, except cured
basal or squamous cell skin cancer, superficial bladder cancer, prostate
intraepithelial neoplasm, carcinoma in-situ of the cervix, or other noninvasive or
indolent malignancy
- History of thromboembolic or cerebrovascular events ≤ 6 months prior to starting study
treatment, including transient ischemic attacks, cerebrovascular accidents, deep vein
thrombosis or pulmonary emboli
- Concurrent neuromuscular disorder that is associated with the potential of elevated
creatine (phosphor)kinase (CK) (e.g., inflammatory myopathies, muscular dystrophy,
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, spinal muscular atrophy)
- Residual common terminology criteria for adverse events (CTCAE) ≥ Grade 2 toxicity
from any prior anticancer therapy, with the exception of Grade 2 alopecia or Grade 2
- Known history of HIV infection
- Active hepatitis B or hepatitis C infection
- Known history of Gilbert's syndrome
- Known contraindication to receive cetuximab or irinotecan at the planned doses
