For the first part of the study (phase I), the primary objective is to find a safe and tolerable dose for saracatinib (AZD0530) given in combination with standard chemotherapy treatment (docetaxel and prednisolone) for patients with metastic castrate-refractory prostate cancer. For the second part of the study (phase II), the primary objective is to investigate whether we can improve the benefits of chemotherapy cancer treatment for patients with metastic castrate-refractory prostate cancer by adding a new drug, saracatinib (AZD0530).
