Inclusion Criteria:

or signet cell features

Asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC)
(score on BPI-SF Question #3 must be < 4).

For enrollment into Part 2 only (optional in Part 1): assessment of DDR mutation status

Consent to a saliva sample collection for a germline comparator unless prohibited by local
regulations or ethics committee decision (optional for patients in Part 1).

Progressive disease at study entry in the setting of medical or surgical castration as
defined by 1 or more of the following 3 criteria:

   - Prostate specific antigen (PSA) progression defined by a minimum of 2 rising PSA
   values from 3 consecutive assessments with an interval of at least 7 days between

   - Soft tissue disease progression as defined by RECIST 1.1.

   - Bone disease progression defined by Prostate Cancer Working Group 3 (PCWG3) with 2 or
   more new metastatic bone lesions on a whole body radionuclide bone scan.

Ongoing bisphosphonate or denosumab use prior to Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part 2)
is allowed but not mandatory.

Must agree to use a condom when having sex with a partner from the time of the first dose
of study drug through 4 months after last dose of study treatment. Must also agree for
female partner of childbearing potential to use an additional highly effective form of
contraception from the time of the first dose of study treatment through 4 months after
last dose of study treatment when having sex with a non pregnant female partner of
childbearing potential.

Must agree not to donate sperm from the first dose of study drug to 4 months after the last
dose of study drug.

Evidence of a personally signed and dated informed consent document (and molecular
prescreening consent if appropriate) indicating that the patient [or a legally acceptable
representative/legal guardian] has been informed of all pertinent aspects of the study.

Willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plan, laboratory tests, and
other study procedures

Exclusion Criteria:

Any prior systemic cancer treatment initiated in in the non metastatic CRPC and mCRPC
disease state.

Patients whose only evidence of metastasis is adenopathy below the aortic bifurcation.

Prior treatment with second-generation androgen receptor inhibitors (enzalutamide,
apalutamide, and darolutamide), a PARP inhibitor, cyclophosphamide, or mitoxantrone for
prostate cancer.

Prior treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy within 6 months (from the last dose) prior
to Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part 2), or any history of disease progression on
platinum-based therapy within 6 months (from the last dose).

Treatment with cytotoxic chemotherapy, biologic therapy including sipuleucel T, or
radionuclide therapy received in the castration-sensitive prostate cancer is NOT
exclusionary if discontinued in the 28 days prior to Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part

Treatment with any investigational agent within 4 weeks before Day 1 (Part 1) or
randomization (Part 2).

Prior treatment with opioids for pain related to either primary prostate cancer or
metastasis within 28 days prior to Day 1 (Part 1) or randomization (Part 2).

Current use of potent P-gp inhibitors within 7 days prior to Day 1 (Part 1) or
randomization (Part 2).

Major surgery (as defined by the investigator) within 2 weeks before Day 1 (Part 1) or
randomization (Part 2), or palliative localized radiation therapy within 3 weeks before
randomization (Part 2).

Clinically significant cardiovascular disease

Significant renal dysfunction as defined by any of the following laboratory abnormalities:

• Renal: eGFR < 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 by the MDRD equation (available via www.mdrd.com).

Patients enrolled in Part 1 only: Moderate renal impairment (eGFR 30-59 mL/min/1.73 m2) at

Significant hepatic dysfunction as defined by any of the following laboratory abnormalities
on screening labs:

   - Total serum bilirubin >1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) (>3 × ULN for
   patients with documented Gilbert syndrome or for whom indirect bilirubin
   concentrations suggest an extrahepatic source of elevation).

   - Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) >2.5 times ULN (>5
   × ULN if liver function abnormalities are due to hepatic metastasis).

   - Albumin <2.8 g/dL

Absolute neutrophil count < 1500/µL, platelets < 100,000/µL, or hemoglobin < 9 g/dL (may
not have received growth factors or blood transfusions within 14 days before obtaining the
hematology values at screening).

Known or suspected brain metastasis or active leptomeningeal disease.

Symptomatic or impending spinal cord compression or cauda equina syndrome.

Any history of myelodysplastic syndrome, acute myeloid leukemia, or prior malignancy except
any of the following:

   - Carcinoma in situ or non melanoma skin cancer

   - Any prior malignancies ≥3 years before randomization with no subsequent evidence of
   recurrence or progression regardless of the stage.

   - Stage 0 or Stage 1 cancer <3 years before randomization that has a remote probability
   of recurrence or progression in the opinion of the investigator

contraception for the duration of the study and for 4 months after the last dose of
investigational product.

who are Pfizer employees, including their family members, directly involved in the conduct
of the study.

Other acute or chronic medical (concurrent disease, infection, or comorbidity) or
psychiatric condition including recent (within the past year) or active suicidal ideation
or behavior or laboratory abnormality that interferes with ability to participate in the
study, may increase the risk associated with study participation or investigational product
administration, or may interfere with the interpretation of study results and, in the
judgment of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this

History of seizure or any condition that may predispose to seizure (eg, prior cortical
stroke, significant brain trauma). Also, history of loss of consciousness or transient
ischemic attack within 12 months of randomization (Part 2).
