A Study of CC-90011 and Comparators in Participants With Prostate Cancer



This is an open-label, positron emission tomography (PET) imaging Proof of Biology (POB) study to determine whether CC 90011 reverses, by the induction of androgen receptor (AR) expression, the castration resistance, due to lineage switch, in participants with mCRPC that have failed enzalutamide as last prior therapy. This study aims to assess whether CC-90011 can induce AR expression and, consequently, re-sensitize tumors to anti-hormonal therapy.

             • Acute symptoms must have resolved and based on investigator assessment in
             consultation with the Study Sponsor Physician, there are no sequelae that would place
             the subject at a higher risk of receiving study treatment

         24. Previous SARS-CoV-2 vaccine within 7 days of C1D1. For vaccines requiring more than
             one dose, the full series (e.g. both doses of a two-dose series) should be completed
             prior to C1D1 when feasible and when a delay in C1D1 would not put the study subject
             at risk.
Maximum Eligible Age:N/A
Minimum Eligible Age:18 Years
Eligible Gender:Male
Healthy Volunteers:No

Primary Outcome Measures

Measure:Assessment of androgen receptor (AR) level
Time Frame:From Screening to the end of cycle 3 (each cycle is 28 days)
Safety Issue:
Description:FDG/FDHT PET imaging will be compared with Screening to Cycle 1 (each cycle is 28 days) and from Cycle 1 to Cycle 3 (Cycle 2-3 is combined therapy period) to assess changes in AR expression.

Secondary Outcome Measures

Measure:Safety and tolerability assessed by Adverse events (AEs)
Time Frame:From the time the subject signs the ICF until 90 days (± 3 days) after the last dose of study medication
Safety Issue:
Description:All AEs will be monitored and recorded from the time the subject signs the ICF until 90 days (± 3 days) after the last dose of study medication. For SAEs made known to the Investigator at any time thereafter that are suspected of being related to study drug, must be reported. For subjects who have high blood pressure related to abiraterone treatment, blood pressure monitoring every 2 weeks should continue after discontinuation of abiraterone until the blood pressure normalizes or returns to pre-enrollment levels.
Measure:Safety and tolerability assessed by dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs)
Time Frame:Through study completion, Up to 1.5 years
Safety Issue:
Description:DLTs will be assessed using the NCI CTCAE criteria, version 5.0. An event will be considered a DLT if the event is attributed (definitely, probably or possibly) to study treatment during Cycle 2 (4weeks) consistent with CC-90011 in combination with abiraterone and prednisone
Measure:Assessment of anti-tumor activity
Time Frame:Through study completion, Up to 3 years
Safety Issue:
Description:Anti-tumor activity will be assessed based on Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials Working Group (PCWG3) criteria
