Brief Summary:

To determine:

  • Anti-tumor activity of IPI-504 in 2 groups of subjects with hormone resistant prostate cancer.
  • Group A - subjects who have not previously received chemotherapy
  • Group B - sujects who have received prior chemotherapy or could not tolerate chemotherapy.
  • Clinical response will be determined by PSA and radiological response

Prostate Cancer Prostatic Neoplasms Cancer of the Prostate Drug: IPI-504 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

IPI-504 is a novel, water-soluble analog of 17-AAG and a potent inhibitor of Hsp90. Hsp90's role in the cell is to control the proper folding, function, and viability of various "client" proteins. Many of these client proteins (such as AKT, Her-2, Bcr-Abl, PDGFR-α, and c-Kit) are oncoproteins or important cell signaling proteins. Inhibition of HSP-90 leads to the proteasomal degradation of these proteins.

In patients with HRPC,there are several proteins that are important in the progression of HRPC, including AR, AKT and Her-2. All of these are client proteins of Hsp90 and in response to Hsp90 inhibition are degraded by their proteasome. Preclinical studies have shown that Hsp90 inhibition causes a dose dependent degradation of these client proteins and growth inhibition of prostate cancer in xenograft tumors.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: IPI-504: Group A
No Prior treatment for prostate cancer with cytotoxic chemotherapy (adjuvant or neoadjuvant chemotherapy is acceptable if completed >2 years prior to study)
Drug: IPI-504
IPI-504 at 400mg/m2, IV, 2 times a week for 2 weeks with 10 days off treatment. Twenty-one (21) day cycle

Experimental: IPI-504: Group B
  • Must have evidence of radiographic metastatic disease
  • Must have been treated with a docetaxel-based chemotherapy regimen for HRPC with a minimum of 2 cycles with either PSA or RECIST defined radiographic progression during or witin 60 days of completeing docetaxel based chemotheraph or be intolerant of docetaxel-based chemotherapy
  • No more than three prior chemotherapies regimens for HRPC
Drug: IPI-504
IPI-504 at 400mg/m2, IV, 2 times a week for 2 weeks with 10 days off treatment. Twenty-one (21) day cycle

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlate prior treatment status with clinical response as determined by PSA and radiologic response rate [ Time Frame: 12 Weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess the safety and tolerability of IPI-504 in patients with hormone resistant prostate cancer [ Time Frame: 12 Weeks ]
