    Abstract
    Purpose
    Approximately 60% of patients with melanoma harbor BRAF mutation and targeting BRAF offers enormous advance in the treatment of those patients. Unfortunately, the efficacy of the BRAF inhibitors is usually restricted by the onset of drug resistance. Therefore, better understanding of the adaptive drug resistance mechanisms is essential for the development of alternative therapeutic strategies, and offers more promising measures to promote the short duration of response to BRAF inhibitors.
    Methods
    The levels of tumor suppressive long noncoding RNA on chromosome 8p12 were...
