- Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1.5 x 10^9/L (within 90 days prior to registration)

- Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) =< 3.0 x ULN (within 90 days prior to registration)
- Serum albumin >= 3 g/dL (within 90 days prior to registration)
- Serum potassium >= 3.5 mg/dL (within 90 days prior to registration)
- Serum total bilirubin =< 1.5 x ULN or direct bilirubin =< 1 x ULN (Note: in subjects with Gilberts syndrome, if total bilirubin is > 1.5 x ULN, measure direct and indirect bilirubin, and if direct bilirubin is =< 1.5 x ULN, subject may be eligible) (within 90 days prior to registration)
- Men of child-producing potential must be willing to consent to use effective contraception while on treatment and for at least 3 months afterwards
- The patient or a legally authorized representative must provide study-specific informed consent prior to study entry
- PSA > 150 ng/mL
- Definitive clinical or radiologic evidence of metastatic disease
- Pathologically positive lymph nodes or nodes > 1.5 cm short axis on CT or MR imaging
- Prior radical prostatectomy, cryosurgery for prostate cancer, or bilateral orchiectomy for any reason
- Any active malignancy within 2 years of study registration that may alter the course of prostate cancer treatment
- Prior systemic therapy for prostate cancer; note that prior therapy for a different cancer is allowable
- Prior radiotherapy, including brachytherapy, to the region of the prostate that would result in overlap of radiation therapy fields
- Current treatment with first generation anti-androgens (bicalutamide, nilutamide, flutamide). For patients enrolled to phase II, if prior anti-androgens were administered, a washout period of >= 30 days is required prior to enrollment
- Severe, active co-morbidity, defined as follows: * Unstable angina and/or congestive heart failure requiring hospitalization within the last 6 months * Transmural myocardial infarction within the last 6 months * Acute bacterial or fungal infection requiring intravenous antibiotics at the time of registration * Uncontrolled acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) based upon current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) definition * Presence of uncontrolled hypertension (persistent systolic blood pressure [BP] >=160 mmHg or diastolic BP >= 100 mmHg). Subjects with a history of hypertension are allowed, provided that BP is controlled to within these limits by anti-hypertensive treatment
- Prior allergic reaction to the drugs involved in this protocol (including known allergies, hypersensitivity or intolerance to the excipients of niraparib)
- Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive with CD4 count < 200 cells/microliter * Note that patients who are HIV positive are eligible, provided they have a CD4 count >= 200 cells/microliter within 90 days prior to registration. Patients receiving treatment with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) will not be eligible due to concern for radiosensitization * Note also that HIV testing is not required for eligibility for this protocol. This exclusion criterion is necessary because the treatments involved in this protocol may be affected by these drugs
- Any history or current diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)/acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
- Prior or current treatment with PARP inhibitor

I. To establish the preferred dose of niraparib in combination with radiation and antiandrogen therapy (ADT). (Phase I)
II. To compare the disease-free state, defined as prostate specific antigen (PSA) remaining < 0.1 ng/ml at the end of ADT therapy in men with high risk prostate cancer treated with standard therapy with or without the addition of niraparib. (Phase IIR)
I. To further establish the safety and toxicity profile of standard treatment with radiation and androgen deprivation therapy specifically, two years from initiation of ADT, plus niraparib at the phase II dose.
II. To compare the overall survival, prostate cancer-specific survival, local/regional or distant progression, and distant metastatic disease rates of standard therapy with or without the addition of niraparib.
I. To identify genomic biomarkers of response to combination therapy with radiation, ADT and PARP inhibition.
OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study of niraparib, followed by a randomized phase II study.
PHASE I: Patients receive niraparib orally (PO) once daily (QD) and receive standard of care gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist androgen suppression therapy. Treatment with niraparib continues for 12 months, and GnRH agonist therapy for 24 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Beginning 8 weeks after starting niraparib and GnRH agonist, patients undergo standard of care intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) 5 days per week for about 6-9 weeks, depending on type of radiation therapy given, in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
PHASE II: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms:
ARM I: Patients undergo standard of care GnRH agonist androgen suppression therapy for 24 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Beginning 8-28 weeks after starting GnRH agonist, patients undergo IMRT 5 days per week for about 6-9 weeks depending on type of radiation therapy given in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
ARM II: Patients undergo standard of care GnRH agonist androgen suppression therapy for 24 months, and niraparib PO QD for 12 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Beginning 8 weeks after starting niraparib, patients undergo standard of care IMRT 5 days per week for about 6-9 weeks depending on type of radiation therapy given in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 months for 3 years, then annually for 3 years.
