Brief Summary:
The study is an open-label Phase 1 study of the combination of relacorilant with enzalutamide in patients with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Prostate Cancer Drug: Enzalutamide Drug: Relacorilant Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The study is an open-label Phase 1 study of the combination of relacorilant with enzalutamide in patients with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Patients will be enrolled in 6 patient cohorts with a 6+3 design and a 28 day DLT period. Doses of relacorilant, enzalutamide will be adjusted based on safety and pharmacokinetics (PK). Once a safe dose with appropriate drug levels (PK) has been established, the cohort will be expanded to a total of 12 patients to refine safety and PK at the recommended phase II dose (RP2D).

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Histologically or cytologically confirmed prostate cancer with documented metastatic disease
  2. Evidence of castrate testosterone level <50ng/dl (or surgical castration)
  3. Evidence of disease progression:

    • 2 or more new lesions on bone scan or
    • Progressive disease on CT/MRI according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors 1.1 criteria or
    • Rising Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA): PSA evidence for progressive prostate cancer consists of a minimum PSA level of at least 2 ng/ml, which has subsequently risen on at least 2 successive occasions, at least 2 weeks apart.
  4. Prior treatment with at least one line of potent androgen receptor signaling inhibitor (e.g. abiraterone, enzalutamide, apalutamide) in either castration-sensitive or castration-resistant setting.
  5. Any prior therapy for castrate disease is acceptable except prior GR antagonist treatment (e.g. mifepristone or relacorilant).
  6. Any other radiotherapy or radionuclide require 28-day washout prior to first dose of study drug.
  7. Denosumab or zoledronic acid are allowed.
  8. ECOG performance status ≤ 2.
  9. Patients must have normal hepatic function as defined below:

    • Total bilirubin </=1.5 x the upper limit of normal
    • AST(SGOT)/ALT(SGPT) </=2.5 X institutional upper limit of normal
    • Albumin >/=3.0 g/dL
  10. Patients must have normal bone marrow function as defined below:

    • Platelet count (plt) >/= 80,000 /microliter
    • Hemoglobin (Hgb) >/= 9 g/dL
    • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >/= 1500
  11. Patients must have normal renal function as defined below:

    • GFR >/= 30 mL/min
  12. Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document.
  13. Patients with active Diabetes Mellitus on glucose lowering medications are eligible provided they agree to and are able to self-monitor daily blood glucose levels due to potential risk of lowering glucose levels on relacorilant.
  14. Male patient and his female partner who is of childbearing potential must use 2 acceptable methods of birth control (one of which must include a condom as a barrier method of contraception) starting at screening and continuing throughout the study period and for 3 months after final study drug administration. Two acceptable methods of birth control thus include the following:

    • Condom (barrier method of contraception); AND
    • One of the following is required:

      1. Established use of oral, or injected or implanted hormonal method of contraception by the female partner;
      2. Placement of an intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS) by the female partner;

  5. Blood pressure that is not controlled despite > 2 oral agents (SBP >160 and DBP >90 documented during the screening period with no subsequent blood pressure readings >160/100).
  6. History of seizure disorder or active use of anticonvulsants. Medications used to treat neuropathic pain such as gabapentin or pregabalin are allowed.
  7. Documented history of or current brain metastases due to seizure risk
  8. Serious intercurrent infections or non-malignant medical illnesses that are uncontrolled.
