metastatic, progressive disease while on androgen deprivation therapy.
- Subject has radiograph-documented (computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging or
x-ray) metastatic disease.
- Subject has undergone orchiectomy or is expected to continue receiving luteinizing
hormone-releasing hormone analogue therapy, and has a testosterone level of <50 ng/dL
- Subject has discontinued all antiandrogen therapy (within 30 days for flutamide and

- Subject has a prostate-specific antigen level ≥5 ng/mL.
- Subject meets all screening laboratory values as specified in the protocol.
- Subject has a screening ejection fraction that is above the lower limit of the
institutional normal range.
- Subject has ECOG performance status of 0 to 2.
- Subject has normal or, in the opinion of the investigator, clinically insignificant,
physical examination findings, ECG and chest x-ray results.
- Subjects, even if surgically sterilized (ie, status postvasectomy), who: agree to
practice effective barrier contraception during the entire study treatment period and
for 4 months after the last dose of study drug, or agree to completely abstain from
- Subject has known hypersensitivity to TAK-700 or related compounds.
- Subject has received prior therapy with aminoglutethimide or ketoconazole within 30

- Subject has received prior chemotherapy for prostate cancer.
- Subject has received any investigational compound within 30 days prior to first dose
of study drug.

levels (eg, Saw Palmetto, PC-SPES) within 30 days prior to the first dose of study
- Subject has received radiation therapy for prostate cancer within 30 days prior to
first dose of study drug.
- Chronic therapy with oral or other systemically administered corticosteroids, such as
prednisone, within 30 days prior to Screening. Chronic therapy is defined as the use
of corticosteroids for more than 7 days within a 30-day period.

i.e., bone pain, pelvic pain.

difficult to successfully manage and follow the subject according to protocol.

which a certified translation of the institutional review board (IRB)-approved
informed consent has been provided.
