Abstract 3619


Treatment options for mCRPC following androgen deprivation and taxane therapy are limited. Preclinical and limited clinical data suggest efficacy of PARP inhibition in HRR-deficient PCa.


TRITON2 (NCT02952534; target enrolment, 157 pts) is evaluating rucaparib 600 mg BID in pts with a deleterious germline or somatic alteration in BRCA1, BRCA2 or 1 of 13 other prespecified HRR genes. Pts who progressed on 1–2 lines of androgen receptor–directed therapy and 1 prior line of taxane-based chemotherapy for mCRPC are eligible. The primary endpoint is centrally assessed confirmed objective response rate per modified RECIST v1.1/PCWG3 for pts with measurable disease and confirmed prostate-specific antigen (PSA) response (≥50% decrease) in pts without measurable disease. PSA response in all pts is a secondary endpoint.


At the 6 Mar 2018 data cutoff date, 52 pts were treated with rucaparib. Median duration of follow-up was 3.7 mo (range, 1.0–12.6). Twenty-six pts (50%) had a BRCA1/2 alteration (BRCA pts), 12 had a CDK12 alteration, 10 had an ATM alteration and 4 had an alteration in another HRR gene. Prior therapies included docetaxel (88.5%), enzalutamide (82.7%), abiraterone (71.2%) and cabazitaxel (11.5%). Forty-four pts (84.6%) had bone metastases; 33 (63.5%) and 17 pts (32.7%) had nodal and visceral metastases, respectively. Among BRCA pts, 21 (80.8%) remain on study (median treatment duration, 16.1 wk; range, 4.1–36.9). Eleven of 23 evaluable BRCA pts had a confirmed PSA response (47.8%; 95% CI, 26.8–69.4). Five of 11 evaluable BRCA pts had a confirmed investigator-assessed RECIST/PCWG3 response (45.5%; 95% CI, 16.7–76.6). Overall, the most common treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) included nausea (48.1%; grade ≥3, 3.8%) and asthenia/fatigue (44.2%; grade ≥3, 1.9%). One (1.9%) pt discontinued due to a TEAE; no deaths were reported.


Rucaparib has encouraging antitumour activity in mCRPC pts with a deleterious alteration in BRCA1 or BRCA2. Updated data from current and newly enrolled pts will be presented, including from pts with other gene alterations.
