Brief Summary:
This phase I/II trial tests the safety, side effects, and best dose of abemaciclib and whether it works before 177Lu-PSMA-617 in treating patients with castration resistant prostate cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Abemaciclib is in a class of medications called kinase inhibitors. It is highly selective inhibitors of cyclin-dependent kinase 4 and 6, which are proteins involved in cell differentiation and growth. It works by blocking the action of an abnormal protein that signals cancer cells to multiply. Radioligand therapy uses a small molecule (in this case 177Lu-PSMA-617), which carries a radioactive component to destroys tumor cells. When 177Lu-PSMA-617 is injected into the body, it attaches to the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) receptor found on tumor cells. After 177Lu-PSMA-617 attaches to the PSMA receptor, its radiation component destroys the tumor cell. Giving abemaciclib before 177Lu-PSMA-617 may help 177Lu-PSMA-617 kill more tumor cells.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Recommended phase 2 dose (Part A) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    If two or more patients in a cohort experience a dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), then the maximum tolerated dose (MTD)has been exceeded. The previous dose level will be considered the MTD and the recommended phase 2 dose. Per Investigator discretion, the recommended phase 2 dose/schedule of abemaciclib followed by 177Lu-PSMA-617 may be established in the absence of reaching MTD, based on the cumulative safety data of the treatment regimen.

  2. Proportion of participants with DLTs (Part A) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Any non-hematologic, treatment-related adverse event (TRAE) Grade 3+, except of Grade 3 nausea,vomiting,diarrhea,constipation,fever,fatigue,skin rash,alopecia or non-clinically significant laboratory that resolves to Grade <3 within 72 hours;Grade 4 thrombocytopenia lasting >7 days;Grade 3+ thrombocytopenia with bleeding/requirement for platelet transfusion;Grade 4 neutropenia lasting >7 days; Grade 3+ neutropenic fever;Grade 4+ anemia;TRAE requiring treatment discontinuation/delay of >42 days;Failure to receive at least 66% of abemaciclib doses due to toxicity;Death not clearly due to underlying disease/extraneous causes;Hy's law;Grade 3+ nausea/vomiting/diarrhea >72 hours;Grade 3+ fatigue >7 days;Grade 3+ electrolyte abnormality >72 hours, unless patient has clinical symptoms;All AEs of specified grades should count as DLTs except those that are clearly due to progression/extraneous causes.

  3. Change in maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) across three lesions on gallium Ga 68 gozetotide (68Ga-PSMA-11) positron emission tomography (PET) scan (Part B) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks ]
    The uptake in the three lesions with the highest SUVmax on the initial scan will be compared to SUVmax measurements in the same lesions on the PSMA PET scan following 14 days of priming treatment with abemaciclib


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. PSA50 response rate (Part B) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks ]
    The proportion of patients who achieve a greater than 50% decline from baseline prostate specific antigen (PSA) drawn prior to cycle 1 day 1, at any point in the treatment course, will be descriptively reported along with 95% binomial confidence interval.

  2. Proportion of participants with TRAEs (Part B) [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after last dose of study drug, approximately 28 weeks ]
    Evaluated by National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 5.0 CTCAE v.5) and defined as any adverse event which is classified by the investigator as having a definite, probable, or possible attribution to study treatments.

  3. Radiographic progression free survival (Part B) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    Radiographic progression of disease will be defined by RECIST version 1.1 and Prostate Cancer Working Group 3 (PCWG3) criteria. For the first scheduled reassessment by bone scan, new bone lesions will require a confirmatory bone scan 6 or more weeks later. Median progression free survival will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Durations will be measured from the first day of study treatment (cycle 1) to the first date of radiographic progression or death, whichever occurs first. Patients who discontinue study treatment for toxicity, withdraw from the study, or have PSA-only progression will be censored at the date of the last radiographic tumor assessment. Patients who discontinue treatment for clinical progression or deterioration will be included in the analysis.

  4. Objective response rate (Part B) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks ]
    Measured by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1 response in soft tissue, lymph node and visceral lesions. Objective response is defined as the best response (complete response or partial response) from the start of treatment until disease progression or recurrence, where the reference for progressive disease is the smallest measurements recorded from start of treatment. To be assigned a status of objective response (CR or PR), changes in tumor measurements must be confirmed by repeat scans no less than 4 weeks after the criteria for response are first met. The proportion of patients with objective response will be descriptively reported with 95% binomial confidence interval.

  5. Disease control rate (Part B) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks ]
    Measured by RECIST version 1.1 response in soft tissue, lymph node and visceral lesions. Disease control rate is defined as patients achieving either the best response (complete response or partial response) or stable disease from the start of treatment until disease progression or recurrence, where the reference for progressive disease is the smallest measurements recorded from start of treatment. The proportion of patients with disease control rate will be descriptively reported with 95% binomial confidence interval.

  6. Median overall survival (OS) (Part B) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    Median overall survival and 95% confidence interval will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Duration will be measured from first date of study therapy to date of death from any cause.

  7. Median duration of response (DOR) (Part B) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    Median duration of response will be estimated using Kaplan-Meier product limit method, starting with the date of first scan indicating response until loss of response with disease progression per RECIST version 1.1 or death, whichever occurs first
