Brief Summary:
This open label, randomised, stratified, 2-arm, multicentre, phase 2 trial aims to determine the activity and safety of Lu-PSMA vs cabazitaxel in men with progressive metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cancer of the Prostate Metastatic Cancer Other: 177Lu-PSMA617 Drug: Cabazitaxel Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Despite recent advances in the treatment of prostate cancer, metastatic disease remains incurable.

Prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is present in high quantities on the cell surface of prostate cancers, and is also further increased in metastatic hormone refractory carcinomas. PSMA is an attractive target for both imaging and treatment of prostate cancer. PSMA bound to the radioactive substance Gallium68 (GaPSMA) is rapidly being adopted for imaging prostate cancer using positron emission tomography (PET) scanning.

Radionuclide therapy is an approach for the treatment of cancer that uses tumour targeting agents to deliver high doses of radiation to sites of tumours. The PSMA molecule used for PET imaging can also be labelled with Lutetium177 (Lu177), a radioactive substance.

The aim of this study is to determine the activity and safety of LuPSMA radionuclide therapy.

Patients with metastatic prostate cancer who have progressed despite hormonal therapy and chemotherapy, will be randomised to receive either LuPSMA radionuclide therapy (up to a maximum of 6 cycles of therapy) or cabazitaxel chemotherapy (up to a maximum of 10 cycles of therapy).

200 participants will be recruited from sites across Australia.

The study will determine the effects on PSA response rate (primary endpoint), pain response, progression free survival, quality of life, and frequency and severity of adverse events. Correlative outcomes include associations between PET imaging and clinical outcomes, and biomarkers and clinical outcomes.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 177Lu-PSMA617

Patients randomised to the 177Lu-PSMA617 arm will receive 6-8.5GBq of 177Lu-PSMA617 by intravenous injection once every 6 weeks until progressive disease, prohibitive toxicity or a maximum of 6 cycles.

The first dose will be administered at 8.5GBq, reducing by 0.5GBq with every cycle given (i.e. to 6.0GBq on the sixth cycle, if reached). In some patients who have an exceptional response, treatment will be paused but can be re-commenced up to the maximum of 6 cycles upon progression.

Other: 177Lu-PSMA617

Patients randomised to the 177Lu-PSMA617 arm will receive 6-8.5GBq of 177Lu-PSMA617 by intravenous injection once every 6 weeks until progressive disease, prohibitive toxicity or a maximum of 6 cycles.

The first dose will be administered at 8.5GBq, reducing by 0.5GBq with every cycle given (i.e. to 6.0GBq on the sixth cycle, if reached). In some patients who have an exceptional response, treatment will be paused but can be re-commenced up to the maximum of 6 cycles upon progression.

Other Name: Lutetium Prostate-specific membrane antigen

Active Comparator: Cabazitaxel

Patients randomised to the Cabazitaxel arm will receive 20mg/m2 Cabazitaxel by intravenous infusion once every 3 weeks until progressive disease, prohibitive toxicity or a maximum of 10 cycles.

Patients in this arm will also receive prednisolone 10mg orally per day for the duration of their cabazitaxel treatment.

Drug: Cabazitaxel

Patients randomised to the Cabazitaxel arm will receive 20mg/m2 Cabazitaxel by intravenous infusion once every 3 weeks until progressive disease, prohibitive toxicity or a maximum of 10 cycles.

Patients in this arm will also receive prednisolone 10mg orally per day for the duration of their cabazitaxel treatment.
