Brief Summary:
This randomized phase II trial studies how well abiraterone acetate and antiandrogen therapy, with or without cabazitaxel and prednisone, work in treating patients with hormone-sensitive prostate cancer previously treated with docetaxel that has spread to other parts of the body. Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Hormone therapy using abiraterone acetate and antiandrogen therapy may fight prostate cancer by lowering and/or blocking the use of androgens by the tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cabazitaxel and prednisone, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving abiraterone acetate and antiandrogen therapy with or without cabazitaxel and prednisone may help kill more tumor cells.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From randomization to radiographic progression, symptomatic deterioration or death, whichever occurs first, assessed for up to 5 years ]
    Will be compared between the two arms. Patients who are alive without progression will be censored at the date of last disease assessment.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of adverse events assessed by the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days from last treatment on study ]
    Will be evaluated for toxicity and the percent of patients with various toxicities will be tabulated.

  2. Maximum decline in PSA while on treatment [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 30 days from last treatment on study ]
    Will be compared between the two arms using Wilcoxon rank sum test.

  3. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Time from randomization to time of death or date last known alive, assessed for up to 5 years ]
    Will be estimated for each arm using the Kaplan-Meier method and the stratified logrank test will be used to compare this endpoint across treatments.

  4. Percent change in PSA in serum [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 weeks ]
    Will be compared between the two arms using Wilcoxon rank sum test.

  5. Radiographic response (complete and partial response) assessed per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors 1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Fisher's exact test will be used to compare rates between the two arms. Patients with radiographic response unknown or unevaluable will be considered as non-responders in this analysis.

  6. Time to PSA progression [ Time Frame: Time from randomization to PSA progression, assessed for up to 30 days from last treatment on study ]
    Will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Stratified log rank test will be used to compare between the two arms.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Change in AR-V7 status in circulating tumor cells [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 5 years ]
    Fisher's exact test will be used to compare the proportion of patients who become AR-V7 negative at follow-up assessments between the two arms among patients who are AR-V7 positive at baseline. Cox regression will be used to evaluate the associations between baseline AR-V7 status and PFS as well as OS and its interaction with treatment.

    > ULN, measure direct and indirect bilirubin and if direct bilirubin is within normal range, subject may be eligible) or
