Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the effect of cabozantinib compared to prednisone on overall survival in men with previously treated metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer with bone-dominant disease who have experienced disease progression on docetaxel-containing chemotherapy and abiraterone or MDV3100.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: cabozantinib
Subjects randomized to the cabozantinib arm will also receive placebo-matched prednisone capsules.
Drug: cabozantinib
Tablets taken orally once-daily
Other Name: XL184

Active Comparator: prednisone
Subjects randomized to the prednisone arm will also receive placebo-matched cabozantinib.
Drug: prednisone
Taken twice a day orally. Commercially-obtained prednisone tablets will be over-encapsulated in order to blind identity.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: OS was measured from the time of randomization until 614 events, approximately 24 months after study start ]
    The primary analysis of OS is defined as the time from randomization to death due to any cause. Participants that had not died or were permanently lost to follow-up were censored at the last known date alive. Median OS was calculated using Kaplan-Meier estimates. Analysis for OS was performed after 614 events had occurred.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Bone Scan Response (BSR) [ Time Frame: BSR was measured at the end of Week 12 as determined by the IRF ]
    BSR is defined as >=30% reduction in the bone scan lesion area (BSLA) compared with baseline. Confirmation of bone scan was not required for response or progression. Bone scans were evaluated by an independent radiology facility (IRF) for response.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Progression-free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Duration of PFS was defined as time from the date of randomization to earlier of date of radiographic progression (bone/andor soft tissue) according to the investigator's assessment or death, assessed for up to approximately 24 months ]
    The exploratory analysis of PFS is the time from randomization to date of first documented radiographic progression (bone and/or soft tissue) according to the investigator's assessment or death. PFS was defined per mRECIST 1.1 and included evaluation of measurable, nonmeasurable, target and nontarget lesions. A Kaplan-Meier analysis was performed to estimate the median duration.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histological or cytological diagnosis of castration resistant prostate cancer (serum testosterone less than 50 ng/dL).
  • Evidence of bone metastasis related to prostate cancer on bone scans.
  • Received prior docetaxel (minimum cumulative dose of 225 mg/m2) and either abiraterone or MDV3100 treatment and has evidence of prostate cancer progression on each agent independently.
  • Maintenance of LHRH agonist or antagonist unless treated with orchiectomy.
  • Recovered from toxicities related to any prior treatments, unless the toxicities are clinically non significant or easily manageable.
  • Adequate organ and marrow function.
  • Capable of understanding and complying with the protocol requirements and signed the informed consent form.
  • Sexually active fertile patients and their partners must agree to use medically accepted methods of contraception (eg, barrier methods, including male condom, female condom, or diaphragm with spermicidal gel) during the course of the study and for 4 months after the last dose of study treatment.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior treatment with cabozantinib.
  • Treatment with docetaxel, abiraterone, or MDV3100 in the last 2 weeks; or with any other type of cytotoxic or investigational anticancer agent in the last 2 weeks.

  • Known brain metastases or cranial epidural disease.
  • Requires concomitant treatment, in therapeutic doses, with anticoagulants.
  • Requires chronic concomitant treatment of strong CYP3A4 inducers (eg, dexamethasone, phenytoin, carbamazepine, rifampin, rifabutin, rifapentin, phenobarbital, and St. John's Wort).
  • Uncontrolled, significant intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, cardiovascular disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, active infections, non-healing wounds, recent surgery.
  • Clinically significant hematemesis or hemoptysis, or other signs indicative of pulmonary hemorrhage in the last 3 months, or history of other significant bleeding in the past 6 months.
  • Cavitating pulmonary lesion(s) or a lesion invading or encasing a major blood vessel.
  • QTcF > 500 ms within 7 days of randomization.
  • Unable to swallow capsules or tablets.
  • Previously-identified allergy or hypersensitivity to components of the study treatment formulations.
  • Another diagnosis of malignancy requiring systemic treatment within 2 years of randomization.
