Braftovi is a prescription drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat adults with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with a BRAF V600E mutation. It’s indicated to be used in combination with Mektovi (Binimetinib). Braftovi is also referred to by its drug name, Encorafenib.

Braftovi is a member of the class of drugs called kinase inhibitors. Braftovi is believed to work by blocking the action of a gene that makes a protein some lung cancer cells need to divide and grow.
