Brief Summary:
This is an open-label, multi-center, fixed sequence study in subjects with BRAF V600 mutation positive tumors. Subjects will receive single oral doses of 10 milligram (mg) of rosuvastatin and 3 mg of midazolam in the morning of Day 1 (alone), Day 8 (with first dose of dabrafenib 150 mg), and Day 22 (during repeat dose dabrafenib 150 mg twice daily [BID]). Dabrafenib 150 mg BID will be administered from Day 8 to Day 23. Blood samples for PK analysis will be obtained over 32 hours post-dose on Day 1, Day 8, and Day 22. The last dose of dabrafenib will be taken in the morning of Day 23 and the last blood sample in the evening of Day 23. Subjects will be considered to have completed the study once the 32 hour PK sample has been collected on Day 23. Once they have completed the study, eligible subjects may have the option to enter study BRF114144, an open-label roll-over study of dabrafenib (no follow-up visit required) and continue receiving dabrafenib.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetics (PK) parameter of rosuvastatin and midazolam [ Time Frame: Day 1, Day 8 (initiation of dabrafenib dosing) and Day 22 (steady state) ]
    Blood samples will be collected for assessment of PK parameters including maximum observed concentration (Cmax), time to Cmax (tmax), and area under the concentration-time curve from pre-dose extrapolated to infinite time (AUC[0-infinity])

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Secondary PK parameters of rosuvastatin and midazolam [ Time Frame: Day 1, Day 8 (initiation of dabrafenib dosing) and Day 22 (steady state) ]
    Blood samples will be collected for assessment of PK parameters including area under the concentration-time curve to time of last measurable concentration (AUC[0-t]), area under the concentration-time curve from time zero to a time point determined from the data (AUC (partial), terminal phase half-life (t1/2)

  2. PK parameters of dabrafenib and dabrafenib metabolites [ Time Frame: Day 8 and 22; pre-dose, 1 hour (hr), 2 hr, 8 hr and 24 hr after dose ]
    Blood samples will be collected for assessment of concentration of dabrafenib and its metabolites

  3. Number of subjects with adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Screening and up to 10 days post last dose. Skin exams may continue through 6 months post study. ]
    AE is defined as Any untoward medical occurrence in a participant or clinical investigation participant, temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product.

  4. Changes in clinical laboratory measurements to access safety [ Time Frame: Screening, Day 1, Day 22 and Follow-up ]
    Any abnormal laboratory test results (haematology, clinical chemistry, or urinalysis)

  5. Changes in vital sign measurements to access safety [ Time Frame: Screening, Day 1, Day 2, Day 8, Day 9, Day 22 , Day 23 and Follow-up ]
    Vital sign measurements will include systolic and diastolic blood pressure, respiratory rate, pulse rate and pulse oximetry Vital signs should be measured after sitting in a semi-supine position for at least 5 min.

  6. Change from baseline in cardiac assessments [ Time Frame: Screening, Day 1, Day 22,and Follow-up ]
    Cardiac assessments include 12-lead Electrocardiogram (ECG)
