The purpose of this trial is to investigate the safety and tolerability of TAS3681, to find the maximum tolerated dose (MTD)/recommended dose of TAS3681 (Escalation Phase) and to further evaluate safety and preliminary efficacy of TAS3681 at the MTD/recommended dose (Expansion Phase).

Official Title

A Phase 1, Open-Label, Non-Randomized, Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetic Study of TAS3681 in Patients With Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer


This is a first in human, multinational, Phase 1, open-label study of TAS3681 evaluating safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and preliminary antitumor activity in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) for which there is no standard therapy. Eligible participants will be enrolled to evaluate safety and determine the MTD/recommended dose for TAS3681, including a preliminary evaluation of food effect and antitumor activity. The study will be conducted in 2 parts, Dose Escalation (Enrollment closed) and Expansion (Enrollment open), and will enroll up to approximately 200 patients.
