A Study of Niraparib in Combination With Abiraterone Acetate and Prednisone Versus Abiraterone Acetate and Prednisone for Treatment of Participants With Metastatic Prostate Cancer

Trial Status: Active

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of niraparib in combination with abiraterone acetate plus prednisone (AAP) compared to AAP plus placebo.

Inclusion Criteria

  • HRR gene alteration (as identified by the sponsor's required assays) as follows:
  • Cohort 1: positive for HRR gene alteration
  • Cohort 2: not positive for DRD (that is, HRR gene alteration)
  • Metastatic disease documented by positive bone scan or metastatic lesions on computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Metastatic prostate cancer in the setting of castrate levels of testosterone less than or equal to (<=) 50 nanogram per deciliter (ng/dL) on a gonadotropin releasing hormone analog (GnRHa) or bilateral orchiectomy
  • Able to continue GnRHa during the study if not surgically castrate
  • Score of <= 3 on the brief pain inventory-short form (BPI-SF) question number 3 (worst pain in last 24 hours)

Exclusion Criteria

  • Prior treatment with a poly (adenosine diphosphate [ADP]-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor
  • Systemic therapy (that is, novel second-generation AR-targeted therapy such as enzalutamide, apalutamide, or darolutamide; taxane-based chemotherapy, or more than 4 months of abiraterone acetate plus prednisone [AAP] prior to randomization) in the metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) setting; or AAP outside of the mCRPC setting
  • Symptomatic brain metastases
  • History or current diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)/acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
  • Other prior malignancy (exceptions: adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer, superficial bladder cancer, or any other cancer in situ currently in complete remission) <= 2 years prior to randomization, or malignancy that currently requires active systemic therapy

This study will assess efficacy and safety of niraparib in combination with AAP for the treatment of participants with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer. Niraparib is an orally available, highly selective poly (adenosine diphosphate [ADP]-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor, with potent activity against PARP-1 and PARP-2 deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-repair polymerases. AA is a pro-drug of abiraterone and selectively inhibits the enzyme 17 alpha-hydroxylase/C17,20-lyase (CYP17), which is found in the testes and adrenals, as well as in prostate tissues and tumors. In participants with metastatic prostate cancer, DNA-repair anomalies are identified in approximately 15 percent (%) to 20% of tumors. The study will consist of 4 phases: a prescreening phase for biomarker evaluation only, a screening phase, a treatment phase, and a follow up phase. During the prescreening phase participants will be evaluated for homologous recombination repair (HRR) gene alteration status and then will be assigned to one of the 2 cohorts based on their biomarker status. Treatment will be administered daily and is planned to be continuous until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, death, or the sponsor terminates the study. Efficacy, pharmacokinetics, biomarkers, participants reported outcomes and safety will be assessed. The total duration of study will be approximately 66 months.
