Brief Summary:
This randomized, placebo-controlled phase III trial is evaluating the benefit of rucaparib and enzalutamide combination therapy versus enzalutamide alone for the treatment of men with prostate cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic) and has become resistant to testosterone-deprivation therapy (castration-resistant). Enzalutamide helps fight prostate cancer by blocking the use of testosterone by the tumor cells for growth. Poly adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitors, such as rucaparib, fight prostate cancer by prevent tumor cells from repairing their DNA. Giving enzalutamide and rucaparib may make patients live longer or prevent their cancer from growing or spreading for a longer time, or both. It may also help doctors learn if a mutation in any of the homologous recombination DNA repair genes is helpful to decide which treatment is best for the patient.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Radiographic progression-free survival (rPFS) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years post treatment ]
    Radiographic progression-free survival (rPFS) is defined as the time from randomization to date of disease progression or death due to any cause. rPFS time will be compared between the treatment arms using a log-rank test. Median times per treatment arms will be reported.

  2. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years post treatment ]
    Overall survival is defined as the time from randomization to death due to any cause. Overall survival time will be compared between the treatment arms using a log-rank test. Median times per treatment arms will be reported.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Radiographic progression-free survival (rPFS) within HRRm status [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years post treatment ]
    Defined as the time from randomization to date of disease progression or death due to any cause. rPFS time will be compared between the treatment arms using a log-rank test. Median times per treatment arms will be reported.

  2. Time to unequivocal clinical progression [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years post treatment ]
    Defined as deterioration in clinical status clearly attributable to prostate cancer progression with occurrence of cancer pain requiring initiation of chronic administration of opiate analgesia, or an immediate need to re-initiate cytotoxic chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgical intervention for disease-progression related events; or deterioration of Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status to 3 or greater. Time to unequivocal clinical progression will be compared between the treatment arms using a log-rank test. Median times per treatment arms will be reported.

  3. Overall survival by HRRm status [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years post treatment ]
    Defined as the time from randomization to death due to any cause.Overall survival time will be compared between the treatment arms using a stratified (by HRRm status) log-rank test. Median times per treatment arms/HRRm status will be reported.

  4. Overall response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year after completion of treatment ]
    Defined as confirmed radiographic complete response or partial response. The proportion of patients with confirmed radiographic response or partial response will be compared between the treatment arms with a chi-square test (or Fisher's exact test if more appropriate).

  5. Duration of overall response [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year after completion of treatment ]
    Defined as the time from documentation of a radiographic response to disease progression. Duration of response time will be compared between the treatment arms using a log-rank test. Median times per treatment arms will be reported.

  6. Prostate specific antigen (PSA) response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year after completion of treatment ]
    Defined as >= 50% reduction in PSA from baseline. The proportion of patients with PSA response will be compared between the treatment arms with a chi-square test (or Fisher's exact test if more appropriate).

  7. Best response by serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) [ Time Frame: At 7 and 13 months from the start of treatment ]
    Defined as best percentage PSA decline from baseline to 7 and 13 months. The percent PSA decline will be compared between treatment arms with a Wilcoxon rank sum test.

  8. Time to first symptomatic skeletal event (SSE) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years after completion of treatment ]
    Defined as the time to first use of external-beam radiation therapy to relieve skeletal symptoms, new symptomatic pathologic vertebral or nonvertebral bone fractures, spinal cord compression, or tumor-related orthopedic surgical intervention. Time to first SSE will be compared between the treatment arms using a log-rank test. Median times per treatment arms will be reported.

  9. Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year after completion of treatment ]
    Frequency as measured by National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Toxicity Criteria. The proportion of patients experiencing at least one grade 3+ adverse event will be compared between the treatment arms with a chi-square test (or Fisher's exact test if more appropriate).

  10. Discontinuation for treatment emergent toxicities [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year after completion of treatment ]
    The proportion of patients who discontinued treatment for emergent toxicities will be compared between the treatment arms with a chi-square test (or Fisher's exact test if more appropriate).


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Quality of life [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Measured by change from baseline to 12 months of the Trial Outcome Index of the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Prostate (FACT-P) patient-reported outcome questionnaire.

  2. Quality of life [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Measured by change from baseline to 12 months of the Utility Score of the European Quality of Life Five Dimension Five Level (EQ-5D-5L) patient-reported outcome questionnaire.

  3. Laboratory correlative science [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year after completion of treatment ]
    Area under curve for plasma-based and tissue-based genomic profiling in detection of HRRm in mCRPC.

  4. Laboratory correlative science [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year after completion of treatment ]
    The proportion of patients with homologous-recombination repair (HRR) alterations at baseline who develop HRR reversion/function restoring alterations after initiation of treatment in each arm with a chi-square test (or Fisher's exact test if more appropriate).

  • Any concomitant medications that are substrates of CYP3A4, CYP2C9 and CYP2C19 cytochrome enzymes should be monitored closely per clinical judgement of the treating physician
