Brief Summary:
Although there have been advances in the treatment of patients with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), all patients eventually develop resistance to available therapy. Docetaxel is the accepted first-line agent followed by cabazitaxel in the post-docetaxel phase. In this study the investigators propose to evaluate BKM120, a PI3K inhibitor, with cabazitaxel in the treatment of patients with advanced prostate cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Advanced Prostate Cancer Drug: BKM 120 Drug: Cabazitaxel Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This study will be conducted in two parts. In a lead-in cohort, the feasibility and safety of administering BKM120 with a standard dose of cabazitaxel will be assessed. If safety is confirmed, a subsequent Phase II portion will assess the activity of the combination in patients with mCRPC previously treated with docetaxel. The treatment will consist of 3-week (21-day) cycles.

The ultimate purpose of this study will be to determine progression-free survival, response rate, disease control rate and overall survival of patients treated with the combination regimen and compare outcomes to historical results with single-agent cabazitaxel.
