- Pathologically and radiologically confirmed castrate-resistant prostate cancer
metastatic to bone
- Bone metastases which are accessible for biopsy under CT guidance.
- Willingness to undergo sequential biopsy of bone lesions.
- No prior standard chemotherapy for metastatic disease (neoadjuvant, adjuvant and
hormonal treatments are excluded).
- Participant must have discontinued antiandrogen therapy at least 4 weeks (for
flutamide and megestrol acetate) or 6 weeks (for bicalutamide or nilutamide) prior to
the first dose of XL184. Participants currently on LHRH or GnRH agonists can be
maintained on these agents.
- Greater than or equal to 18 years old on day of consent
- Participants must be able to care for themselves
- Adequate organ and bone marrow function
- Participants must be capable of understanding and complying with the protocol

sexual contact with women having the potential to bear children during their
participation in the study and for six months after participation.
- Prior therapy with cabozantinib
- Any other type of investigational agent within 28 days before the first dose of study
treatment or 5 half-lives of the compound or active metabolite, whichever is longer
- No radiation therapy within 14 days of study treatment. No radionuclide treatment
within two months.
- No known brain metastases.
- Test results that measure how quickly blood clots need to be adequate for the study
- Participants who require concomitant treatment, in therapeutic doses, with
anticoagulants such as warfarin or warfarin-related agents, heparin, thrombin or
Factor Xa inhibitors, or antiplatelet agents (e.g., clopidogrel). Low dose aspirin (≤
81 mg/day), low-dose warfarin (≤ 1 mg/day), and prophylactic low molecular weight
heparin (LMWH) are permitted.
- Participants must not have uncontrolled significant illness including but not limited
to: ongoing or active infection requiring systemic treatment, symptomatic congestive
heart failure, uncontrolled hypertension , history of hypertensive emergency
(e.g.encephalopathy) or hypertensive urgency within 6 months of study treatment,

unstable angina pectoris, stroke within 3 months of study drug, heart attack within 3
months of study drug, development of clots within blood vessels within 6 months of
study drug, bleeding from distended veins within 3 months of study drug, any other
severe or life threatening hemorrhage/bleeding, major surgery within 4 weeks of study
treatment, clinically significant cardiac arrhythmias, history of bowel obstruction
or malabsorption syndrome, untreated bone fracture including tumor-related pathologic
fracture, anticipated need for major surgery during the period of the study.
- Corrected QT interval, as measured by an ECG, must be within acceptable protocol
limits within 28 days of entering the study
- Unable to swallow capsules
- Allergy to doxycycline or other tetracyclines
- Unable to undergo MRI
- History of another malignant disease within two years with the exception of
