The purpose of this international, phase 2, open-label, response rate study of talazoparib is to assess the efficacy and safety of talazoparib in men with DNA repair defects metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) who previously received taxane-based chemotherapy and progressed on at least 1 novel hormonal agent (enzalutamide and/or abiraterone acetate/prednisone).

Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
The best ORR is defined as the proportion of patients with a best overall soft tissue response of CR (complete response) or PR (partial response) per RECIST 1.1 by independent central review.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Time to objective response [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
The time from enrollment to the first objective evidence of soft tissue response with no evidence of confirmed bone disease progression on bone scan per PCWG3.
Duration of response [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
The duration of response is defined as the time from the first objective evidence of soft tissue response (subsequently confirmed) per RECIST 1.1 by independent central review and no evidence of confirmed bone disease progression per PCWG3 (the Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials Working Group 3) to the first subsequent objective evidence of radiographic progression or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first.
Proportion of patients with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) response ≥ 50% [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
PSA response will be calculated as a decline from baseline PSA (ng/mL) to the maximal PSA response with a threshold of 50%.
Proportion of patients with conversion of circulating tumor cell (CTC) count [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
The CTC count conversion rate will be defined as the proportion of patients with a CTC count ≥ 5 CTC per 7.5 mL of blood at study entry that decreases to < 5 CTC per 7.5 mL of blood anytime on study. In addition, proportion of patients with a CTC count of 1 or more (detectable) per 7.5 mL of blood at study entry that decreases to CTC=0 (undetectable) per 7.5 mL of blood any time on study
Time to PSA progression [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
The time to PSA progression is defined as the time from enrollment to the date that a ≥ 25% increase in PSA with an absolute increase of ≥ 2 μg/L (2 ng/mL) above the nadir (or baseline for patients with no PSA decline) is documented, confirmed by a second consecutive PSA value obtained ≥ 3 weeks (21 days) later.
Radiographic progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
Radiographic PFS is defined as the time from enrollment to radiographic progression in soft tissue per RECIST 1.1 by independent central review, in bone per PCWG3 by independent central review, or death on study (defined as death within 168 days of study drug discontinuation without evidence of radiographic progression), whichever occurs first.
Overall survival [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
Overall survival is defined as the time from enrollment to death due to any cause.
Patient-reported pain as assessed by the Brief Pain Inventory Short Form (BPI-SF) [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
Patient-reported pain assessed by the BPI-SF will be summarized descriptively by study visit.
Patient-reported health-related quality of life as assessed by the European Quality of Life 5-Domain 5-Level Scale (EQ-5D-5L) [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
Patient-reported health-related quality of life assessed by the EQ-5D-5L will be summarized descriptively.
Safety as assessed by percentage of patients with any Adverse Event (AE), AE leading to Study Drug Discontinuation, AE leading to death, Serious Adverse Event (SAE), AE related to study drug, SAE related to study drug [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
All safety analyses will be performed using the safety population, defined as all patients in the ITT population who receive any amount of any study drug.
Pharmacokinetics (PK) of talazoparib as assessed by trough plasma concentrations [ Time Frame: Anticipated in about 34 months following first patient enrolled ]
PK data analyses will include descriptive summary statistics of the predose Cmin and postdose concentrations of talazoparib by study visit for each treatment group.
