Tafinlar (Dabrafenib Mesylate) is a prescription medication used to treat various cancers, including skin, thyroid, lung, solid tumors, and brain cancer. It is also used in combination with Mekinist to treat skin cancer called melanoma that has metastasized to other parts of the body and to prevent melanoma that has a certain type of abnormal "BRAF" gene from coming back after the cancer has been removed by surgery. The active ingredient in Tafinlar is Dabrafenib Mesylate. Dabrafenib Mesylate belongs to the class of medication called antineoplastic (BRAF Kinase Inhibitor). It works by blocking the action of an abnormal protein that signals cancer cells to multiply, thereby stopping the spread of cancer cells.
