Brief Summary:
The purpose of the pre-study screening is to test for DNA abnormalities or biomarkers.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Prostate Cancer Drug: Adavosertib Drug: Savolitinib Drug: Darolutamide Drug: CFI-400945 Drug: Ipatasertib Drug: Durvalumab and Tremelimumab Drug: Carboplatin Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This testing will be done on a samples of blood to see whether or not patients are eligible to take part in one of the sub-studies. Each study will be looking at what effects a new drug or drugs has on prostate cancer and will also be looking at the side effects of treatment. The purpose of the main studies is to see if the biomarkers that were identified screening samples can help predict which patients are most likely to be helped by that drug or drugs and to see how the cancer cells respond to treatment.

  • RECIST 1.1, or
  • PCWG3 Criteria for bone progression

Surgical/Medical Castration:

  • Prior bilateral orchiectomy, or
  • LHRH agonist/antagonist and testosterone < 50 ng/dL or < 1.7 nmol/L. LHRH agonist/antagonist therapy must be maintained for the duration of study therapy and if previously discontinued, must be restarted and castrate level of testosterone present.
  • Patients must be ≥18 years of age.
  • ECOG performance status 0 or 1 (Appendix I) and have a life expectancy of ≥ 6 months.

  • Neutrophils ≥ 1.5 x 10^9/L
  • Platelets ≥ 100 x 10^9/L
  • Hemoglobin ≥ 90 g/L; contact CCTG if hemoglobin is between 80-89 g/L, patient is not decompensated, is asymptomatic and transfusion is not indicated.
  • Serum potassium within normal limits
  • Bilirubin ≤ 1.5 ULN; if confirmed Gilbert's then bilirubin ≤ 3.0 x ULN

  • Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x ULN or Creatinine clearance ≥ 45 mL/min; measured directly by 24-hour urine sampling OR as calculated by Cockcroft and Gault equation: Males: GFR = 1.23 x (140-age) x weight in kg/serum creatinine in μmol/L
  • Patient consent for screening and subsequent enrollment (as applicable) must be appropriately obtained in accordance with applicable local and regulatory requirements. Each patient must sign a consent form prior to screening and subsequent enrollment (as applicable) in the trial to document their willingness to participate.

Additional Criteria to be met prior to SUB-STUDY ENROLLMENT:

  • Patients must have recovered from any treatment-related toxicities prior to enrollment (unless ≤ grade 1, irreversible, or considered by investigator as not clinically significant).
  • Prior major surgery is permitted provided that a minimum of 14 days have elapsed between any major surgery and enrollment (7 days for minor surgery e.g. port insertion), and that wound healing has occurred.
  • Prior external beam radiation or radium-223 is permitted provided a minimum of 28 days (4 weeks) have elapsed between the last dose and enrollment. Consult CCTG if patients have received other therapeutic radioisotopes. Exceptions may be made for low-dose non-myelosuppressive radiotherapy after consultation with CCTG. Concurrent radiation is not permitted. If radiation is required for example for pain control, it must be completed prior to enrollment. Prior strontium-89 at any time is not permitted.
  • Previous Hormone Therapy: Patients must have received prior hormonal treatment with at least one of: abiraterone acetate, enzalutamide, apalutamide (ARN-509), darolutamide (ODM-201), TAK-700 and TOK-001 or other next-generation AR-pathway inhibitor (if agent is not listed, must be discussed and approved with CCTG prior to registration). Consult substudies for additional criteria
  • Prior cytotoxic therapy: Patients may have received cytotoxic therapy in the castrate sensitive setting as well as up to 1 regimen of cytotoxic therapy in the CRPC setting
  • Patients must have an adequate washout prior to enrollment as follows:
  • Longest of one of the following:

  • Patients must have discontinued anti-androgens for at least 4 weeks prior to substudy entry/enrollment (at least 6 weeks for bicalutamide).
  • LHRH agonist therapy must continue unless surgically castrated. Note: after discussion, CCTG selected patients may be screened prior to adequate washout.
  • Patient must have progressed (biochemically or radiologically, as defined in 4.1.4) during or after their last systemic therapy
  • Patients must be accessible for treatment and follow up. Patients registered enrolled on this trial must be treated and followed at the participating centre. This implies there must be reasonable geographical limits (for example: 1 ½ hour's driving distance) placed on patients being considered for this trial.
  • Investigators must assure themselves the patients enrolled on this trial will be available for complete documentation of the treatment, adverse events, response assessment and follow-up.
  • Patients must agree to return to their primary care facility for any adverse events, which may occur through the course of the trial.
  • In accordance with CCTG policy, protocol treatment is to begin within 2 working days of patient enrollment.
  • Men of childbearing potential must have agreed to use a highly effective contraceptive method during study drug treatment for 6 months after stopping treatment and should not father a child or donate sperm during this period.
  • In addition to routine contraceptive methods, "effective contraception" also includes heterosexual celibacy and surgery intended to prevent pregnancy (or with a side-effect of pregnancy prevention) defined as a hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy or bilateral tubal ligation, or vasectomy / vasectomized partner. However, if at any point a previously celibate patient chooses to become heterosexually active during the time period for use of contraceptive measures outlined in the protocol, he is responsible for beginning contraceptive measures.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with a history of other malignancies, except: adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer, or other solid tumours curatively treated with no evidence of disease for ≥ 2 years.
