Brief Summary:
This is a non-randomized multi-center Phase 1b/2a dose escalation and dose expansion study involving 85-97 patients testing DKN-01 as monotherapy or in combination with docetaxel in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. Patients need to be biomarker positive (Dickkopf-1 [DKK1]) either in plasma or biopsy. Other biopsies for correlative studies are encouraged but not mandatory. Pharmacokinetic (PK) testing of one pre-treatment blood sample and one post-treatment blood sample will be mandatory on Day 1 of every cycle.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Have a histologically or cytologically confirmed prostate adenocarcinoma or poorly differentiated carcinoma of the prostate

  • Cohorts 1A, 1B, and 1C. Patients must have received 1 or more androgen receptor (AR) signaling inhibitors (abiraterone or enzalutamide) and have not received prior taxane-based chemotherapy for prostate cancer. Prior treatment with an AR signaling inhibitor for castration-sensitive disease will be allowed if the time to progression was within 1 year after starting drug. Prior treatment with a taxane-based chemotherapy for castration-sensitive disease will be exclusionary.
  • Cohorts 2A and 2B. Patients must have received 1 or more AR signaling inhibitor (abiraterone or enzalutamide) and either had disease progression, were intolerant of, or refused 1 or more taxane-based chemotherapies for mCRPC.
  • Patients must be DKK1-high as determined by either:

    1. Elevated DKK1 RNA expression in ≥1% of cells as defined by central laboratory testing of a fresh biopsy or archival specimen OR
    2. DKK1 protein level in peripheral blood plasma that is above the reference limit of a cohort of healthy male controls as established by central laboratory testing
  • Cohort 1B. Patients must have progression of measurable disease per mRECIST v1.1 guidelines.
  • Cohort 1C. Patients must have progression of disease defined as one of the following:

    1. PSA progression is defined by Prostate Cancer Working Group 3 (PCWG3) criteria as a minimum of two consecutive rising levels, with an interval of ≥1 week between each determination with a minimum PSA of 2 ng/mL.
    2. Radionuclide bone progression as defined by at least two new metastatic lesions (per PCWG3).
  • Cohorts 1A, 2A, 2B. Patients must have baseline progression defined as one of the following:

    1. PSA progression is defined by PCWG3 criteria as a minimum of two consecutive rising levels, with an interval of ≥1 week between each determination with a minimum PSA of 2 ng/mL.
    2. Radionuclide bone progression as defined by at least two new metastatic lesions (per PCWG3).
    3. Soft tissue progression on transaxial imaging: new or progressive soft tissue masses on computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans as defined by mRECIST v1.1.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) of 0 or 1.
  • Estimated life expectancy of at least 3 months, in the judgment of the Investigator.
  • Disease-free of active second/secondary or prior malignancies for ≥2 years with the exception of currently treated basal cell, squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, or carcinoma in-situ of the cervix or breast.

  • CNS metastases are eligible provided they meet all of the following criteria:

    1. Evaluable disease outside the CNS.
    2. No history of intracranial or intraspinal hemorrhage.
    3. No evidence of significant vasogenic edema.
    4. No ongoing requirement for corticosteroids as therapy for CNS disease. (Anti-convulsants at a stable dose for > one month is allowed.)

    8. Screening CNS radiographic study ≥4 weeks since completion of radiotherapy or surgical resection and ≥2 weeks since discontinuation of corticosteroids.
  • Any other condition, disease, metabolic dysfunction, physical examination finding, or clinical laboratory finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use of an investigational drug or that may affect the interpretation of the results or render the patient at high risk from treatment complications.
  • Active substance abuse.
  • Receipt of any live vaccine within 30 days before the first dose of study treatment or anticipation that such a live vaccine will be required during study.
  • Previously treated with an anti-DKK1 therapy.
