The study medication (BAY 2315497 Injection) is a thorium-227 labeled immuno-conjugate,
specific for the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), which will be evaluated in
patients with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer. In this study, this
investigational medication will be administered to patients for the first time. The primary
objective of the study is to define the safety and tolerability profile and Maximal Tolerated
Dose (MTD) of BAY2315497 Injection alone, or in combination with darolutamide. The secondary
objectives are to determine the recommended dose for further clinical development of
BAY2315497 Injection alone, or in combination with darolutamide and to investigate how the
study drug is distributed and cleared from the body.

taxane regimen, or is considered unsuitable to receive a second taxane regimen (e.g.
