Prostate Cancer Clinical Trial

Cabozantinib and Abiraterone With Checkpoint Inhibitor Immunotherapy in Metastatic Hormone Sensitive Prostate Cancer (CABIOS Trial)

Summary

The goal of this study is to determine the recommended phase 2 dose of the multi-drug combination of abiraterone, cabozantinib, and nivolumab in conjunction with ongoing androgen deprivation therapy in previously untreated metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer patients. The investigators hypothesize that the combination of cabozantinib and abiraterone acetate/prednisone in conjunction with nivolumab will have an acceptable safety profile and will be feasible to administer in patients with hormone-sensitive metastatic prostate cancer.

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:
