Brief Summary:
Cabozantinib (XL184) is a new drug that is being developed to treat cancer. Cabozantinib works by blocking the "angiogenesis," or the growth of new blood vessels, to the tumor. This is similar to how several other cancer drugs work but in addition Cabozantinib also blocks other pathways that may be responsible for allowing cancer cells to become resistant to these other "anti-angiogenic" treatments. So far cabozantinib has been investigated in treating brain cancer and a rare form of thyroid cancer. This study will explore lower doses of cabozantinib with the goal to find the most effective, safe, and tolerable dose without undesirable side effects.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Prostate Adenocarcinoma Drug: cabozantinib Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Cabozantinib will be taken by mouth daily. The first five treatment cycles will be 21 days. All cycles after that will be 42 days long. Patients will keep a diary to record study drug dosing.

During the screening phase patients will receive a physical exam, blood and urine tests, a bone scan, a CT of the abdomen and pelvis, and an MRI scan of total body. On Day 1 of each cycle patients will receive a physical exam and blood and urine tests. Bone scan, CT and MRI scans will be performed at the start of cycles 3 and 5, and then repeated once every 12 weeks.

Patients will continue to receive study treatment as long as they are receiving benefit from the treatment, do not experience any severe or unmanageable side effects, and disease does not get any worse.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Cohort 1
Dose level 0: cabozantinib 40 mg daily
Drug: cabozantinib
Cabozantinib PO QD
Other Name: XL84

Experimental: Cohort 2
Dose level -1: cabozantinib 20 mg daily
Drug: cabozantinib

Experimental: Expansion cohort
Dose level 0: cabozantinib 40 mg daily

Cabozantinib PO QD
Other Name: XL84

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Partial Response in Bone Scan From Baseline to Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 6 ]
    Bone scans will be centrally reviewed and categorized based on comparison of week 6 and baseline imaging. Partial response is defined as 30% or greater decrease in bone scan lesion area from baseline to week 6. An adaptive response design to determine the lowest effective cabozantinib dose among three dose levels (dose level +1, dose level 0 and dose level +1) will be employed.
