The article "Lasting Complete Clinical Response of a Recurring Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma With MEK Mutation and PIK3CA Amplification Achieved by Dual Trametinib and Metformin Therapy" describes a case study of a patient with cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) that had recurred multiple times and had developed resistance to previous treatments. The patient had a genomic profile showing mutations in the MEK and PIK3CA genes, which are known to be involved in cancer progression and resistance to therapy. The patient was treated with a combination of trametinib, a MEK inhibitor, and metformin, a drug commonly used to treat diabetes that has shown potential as an anticancer agent.
