  • Conditions: mCRPC | mCRPC With DNA Damage Repair Deficiencies (DDR) | DDR+ mCRPC
  • Age: Between 18 - 100 Years
  • Gender: Male

Inclusion Criteria:

Histologically or cytologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the prostate withoutsmall cell or signet cell features

Asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) (score on BPI-SF Question #3 must be < 4).

For enrollment into Part 2 only (optional in Part 1): assessment of DDR mutation status

Consent to a saliva sample collection for a germline comparator unless prohibited by local regulations or ethics committee decision (optional for patients in Part 1).

Surgically or medically castrated, with serum testosterone 50 ng/dL ( 1.73 nmol/L) at screening.

Metastatic disease in bone documented on bone scan or in soft tissue documented on CT/MRI scan.

Progressive disease at study entry in the setting of medical or surgical castration as defined by 1 or more of the following 3 criteria:

  • Prostate specific antigen (PSA) progression defined by a minimum of 2 rising PSA values from 3 consecutive assessments with an interval of at least 7 days between assessments..
  • Soft tissue disease progression as defined by RECIST 1.1.
  • Bone disease progression defined by Prostate Cancer Working Group 3 (PCWG3) with 2 or more new metastatic bone lesions on a whole body radionuclide bone scan.

Ongoing bisphosphonate or denosumab use prior to Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part 2) is allowed but not mandatory.

Life expectancy 12 months as assessed by the investigator.

Able to swallow the study drug and have no known intolerance to study drugs or excipients.

Must agree to use a condom when having sex with a partner from the time of the first dose of study drug through 4 months after last dose of study treatment. Must also agree for female partner of childbearing potential to use an additional highly effective form of contraception from the time of the first dose of study treatment through 4 months after last dose of study treatment when having sex with a non pregnant female partner of childbearing potential.

Must agree not to donate sperm from the first dose of study drug to 4 months after the last dose of study drug.

Evidence of a personally signed and dated informed consent document (and molecular prescreening consent if appropriate) indicating that the patient [or a legally acceptable representative/legal guardian] has been informed of all pertinent aspects of the study.

Willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plan, laboratory tests, and other study procedures

Exclusion Criteria:

Any prior systemic cancer treatment initiated in in the non metastatic CRPC and mCRPC disease state.

Patients whose only evidence of metastasis is adenopathy below the aortic bifurcation.

Prior treatment with second-generation androgen receptor inhibitors (enzalutamide, apalutamide, and darolutamide), a PARP inhibitor, cyclophosphamide, or mitoxantrone for prostate cancer.

Prior treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy within 6 months (from the last dose) prior to Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part 2), or any history of disease progression on platinum-based therapy within 6 months (from the last dose).

Treatment with cytotoxic chemotherapy, biologic therapy including sipuleucel T, or radionuclide therapy received in the castration-sensitive prostate cancer is NOT exclusionary if discontinued in the 28 days prior to Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part 2).

Treatment with any investigational agent within 4 weeks before Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part 2).

Prior treatment with opioids for pain related to either primary prostate cancer or metastasis within 28 days prior to Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part 2).

Current use of potent P-gp inhibitors within 7 days prior to Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part 2).

Major surgery (as defined by the investigator) within 2 weeks before Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part 2), or palliative localized radiation therapy within 3 weeks before randomization (Part 2).

Clinically significant cardiovascular disease

Significant renal dysfunction as defined by any of the following laboratory abnormalities:

Renal: eGFR < 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 by the MDRD equation (available via www.mdrd.com).

Patients enrolled in Part 1 only: Moderate renal impairment (eGFR 30-59 mL/min/1.73 m2) at screening.

Significant hepatic dysfunction as defined by any of the following laboratory abnormalities on screening labs:

  • Total serum bilirubin >1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) (>3 ULN for patients with documented Gilbert syndrome or for whom indirect bilirubin concentrations suggest an extrahepatic source of elevation).
  • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) >2.5 times ULN (>5 ULN if liver function abnormalities are due to hepatic metastasis).
  • Albumin <2.8 g/dL

Absolute neutrophil count < 1500/L, platelets < 100,000/L, or hemoglobin < 9 g/dL (may not have received growth factors or blood transfusions within 14 days before obtaining the hematology values at screening).

Known or suspected brain metastasis or active leptomeningeal disease.

Symptomatic or impending spinal cord compression or cauda equina syndrome.

Any history of myelodysplastic syndrome, acute myeloid leukemia, or prior malignancy except for the following:

  • Carcinoma in situ or non melanoma skin cancer
  • A cancer diagnosed and treated 5 years before randomization with no subsequent evidence of recurrence
  • American Joint Committee on Cancer Stage 0 or Stage 1 cancer that has a remote probability of recurrence in the opinion of the investigator and the sponsor

Gastrointestinal disorder affecting absorption.

Fertile male subjects who are unwilling or unable to use highly effective methods of contraception for the duration of the study and for 4 months after the last dose of investigational product.

Investigator site staff members directly involved in the conduct of the study and their family members, site staff members otherwise supervised by the investigator, or patients who are Pfizer employees, including their family members, directly involved in the conduct of the study.

Other acute or chronic medical (concurrent disease, infection, or comorbidity) or psychiatric condition including recent (within the past year) or active suicidal ideation or behavior or laboratory abnormality that interferes with ability to participate in the study, may increase the risk associated with study participation or investigational product administration, or may interfere with the interpretation of study results and, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study.

History of seizure or any condition that may predispose to seizure (eg, prior cortical stroke, significant brain trauma). Also, history of loss of consciousness or transient ischemic attack within 12 months of randomization (Part 2).
