This is a Phase 1b/2 study evaluating FOR46 in combination with enzalutamide in patients with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) after prior progression on abiraterone. FOR46 is designed to target and bind to CD46, a transmembrane cellular protein expressed at moderate or high levels in numerous cancer types. The investigators hypothesize that the combination of FOR46 plus enzalutamide will achieve a clinically significant composite response rate with sufficient durability of response in mCRPC patients.

Official Title

A Phase 1b/2 Study of FOR46 in Combination With Enzalutamide in Patients With Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer



Phase 1b:

  1. To determine the maximally tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of FOR46 in combination with enzalutamide in patients with mCRPC.

Phase 2:

  1. To determine the composite response rate of FOR46 plus enzalutamide, defined as:
  2. Decline in serum PSA >= 50% (PSA50) from baseline, confirmed by repeat measurement at least 4 weeks later, and/or
  3. Objective response by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1 criteria.


Phase 1b and Phase 2:

  1. To determine the PSA50 response rate.

II. To determine the objective response rate by RECIST 1.1 criteria among patients with measurable soft tissue by RECIST 1.1 criteria at baseline.

III. To determine the median duration of objective response.

IIII. To determine the median time to prostate-specific antigen (PSA) progression by Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials Working Group 3 (PCWG3) criteria.

  1. To determine the median radiographic progression-free survival by PCWG3 criteria.

VI. To determine the median overall survival.

VII. To determine the safety of the combination.

Participants may continue study treatment from the time of treatment initiation until confirmed radiographic disease progression per PCWG3 / RECIST 1.1 criteria, unequivocal clinical progression, unacceptable toxicity, or patient withdrawal, whichever occurs first. Patients will be followed for overall survival every 90 days (+/- 30 days) from last dose of study treatment, until death, withdrawal of consent, or the end of the study, whichever occurs first.

Open to males ages 18 years and up

  1. Histologically confirmed metastatic prostate adenocarcinoma.
  2. Disease progression by PCWG3 criteria at study entry.
  3. Prior progression by PCWG3 criteria on one or more androgen signaling inhibitors including abiraterone acetate, enzalutamide, apalutamide, and/or darolutamide.
  4. No prior taxane-based chemotherapy for the treatment of mCRPC. Prior taxane use in the castration-sensitive prostate cancer (CSPC) setting allowed provided last dose > 6 months prior to study entry.
  5. Patients must be evaluable for the primary endpoint of composite response, and must have either serum PSA ≥ 2 ng/mL during Screening and/or measurable disease by RECIST 1.1 criteria.
  6. Participants must be willing to undergo metastatic tumor biopsy during Screening. If there is no safely accessible metastatic lesion, this requirement will be waived.
  7. Dose Expansion only: Participants must be willing to undergo CD46-directed Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging during Screening (Co-enrolling on NCT05245006, Groups B and C)
  8. Castrate level of serum testosterone at study entry (<50 ng/dL). Patients without prior bilateral orchiectomy are required to remain on Luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) analogue treatment for duration of study.
  9. No other systemic anti-cancer therapies administered other than LHRH analogue within 14 days or, 5 half-lives, whichever is shorter, prior to initiation of study treatment. Adverse events related to prior anti-cancer treatment related to therapies other than LHRH analogue must have recovered to Grade ≤ 1 with the exception of any grade alopecia. a. Patients receiving enzalutamide prior to study entry may continue treatment at their current enzalutamide dose level without requirement for wash-out period.

    10. Age >=18 years. 11. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status <= 1 (Karnofsky

    performance status >= 70 percent (%)).

    12. Demonstrates adequate organ function as defined below:

    1. Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1,500/microliter (mcL).
    2. Platelets >= 100,000/mcL and no platelet transfusions during the 14 days prior to first dose of FOR46.
    3. Hemoglobin >= 8.0 grams per deciliter (g/dL) without red blood cell transfusion during the 14 days prior to first dose of FOR46.
    4. Total bilirubin <=1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN), unless elevated due to Gilbert's syndrome and direct bilirubin is within normal limits.
    5. Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) /serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) <=3 x institutional institutional upper limit of normal (ULN).
    6. Alanine aminotransferase (ALT)/serum glutamic-pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) =3 x ULN.
    7. Serum creatinine <= 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal OR Calculated creatinine clearance glomerular filtration rate (GFR) >= 60 mL/min, calculated using the Cockcroft-Gault equation.
    8. Serum sodium level >=130 mg/dl.
      1. Ability to understand a written informed consent document, and the willingness to sign it.
