Exclusion Criteria

Disease Related - Pathological finding consistent with pure small cell, neuroendocrine carcinoma of the prostate or any other histology different from adenocarcinoma - Radiation therapy within 4 weeks of first dose (or local or focal radiotherapy within 2 weeks of first dose) - Untreated central nervous system (CNS) metastases or leptomeningeal disease. Patients with a history of treated CNS metastases are eligible if there is radiographic evidence of improvement upon the completion of CNS-directed therapy and no evidence of interim progression between the completion of CNS directed therapy and the screening radiographic study. Other Medical Conditions - Prior major surgery within 4 weeks of first dose - Confirmed history or current autoimmune disease or other diseases resulting in permanent immunosuppression or requiring permanent immunosuppressive therapy - Presence of fungal, bacterial, viral, or other infection requiring IV antimicrobials for management within 7 days of dosing NOTE: Simple urinary tract infections and uncomplicated bacterial pharyngitis are permitted if responding to active treatment and after consultation with sponsor. Screening for chronic infectious conditions is not required - Positive test for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) - Exclusion of hepatitis infection based on the following results and/or criteria: - Positive for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) (indicative of chronic hepatitis B or recent acute hepatitis B). - Negative HBsAg and positive for hepatitis B core antibody: Hepatitis B virus DNA by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is necessary. Detectable hepatitis B virus DNA suggests occult hepatitis B. - Positive Hepatitis C virus antibody (HCVAb): hepatitis C virus RNA by PCR is necessary. Detectable hepatitis C virus RNA suggests chronic hepatitis C. - History of arterial or venous thrombosis (eg, stroke, transient ischemic attack, pulmonary embolism, or deep vein thrombosis) within 12 months of first dose of AMG 509 - Myocardial infarction and/or symptomatic congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association > class II) within 12 months of first dose of AMG 509 - Unresolved toxicities from prior anti-tumor therapy not having resolved to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 5.0 grade 1, with the exception of alopecia or toxicities that are stable and well-controlled AND there is agreement to allow by both the investigator and sponsor - History of other malignancy within the past 2 years, with the following exception(s): - malignancy treated with curative intent and with no known active disease present for greater than or equal to 1 years before enrollment and felt to be at low risk for recurrence by the treating physician - adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer or lentigo maligna without evidence of disease - adequately treated urothelial papillary noninvasive carcinoma or carcinoma in situ - History or evidence of inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis or Crohn disease) or any other gastrointestinal disorder causing chronic nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea (defined as greater than or equal to 2 CTCAE grade 2) - Evidence of interstitial lung disease or active, non-infectious pneumonitis, or uncontrolled asthma Prior/Concomitant Therapy - Prior STEAP1-targeted therapy - Any anticancer therapy or immunotherapy within 4 weeks of start of first dose, not including LHRH/GnRH analogue (agonist/antagonist). Subjects on a stable bisphosphonate or denosumab regimen for greater or equal than 30 days prior to enrollment are eligible. - Requirement for chronic systemic corticosteroid therapy (prednisone dose greater than 10 mg per day or equivalent) or any other immunosuppressive therapies (including anti TNF-alpha therapies) unless stopped (with adequate tapering) within 7 days prior to dosing Prior/Concurrent Clinical Study Experience - Currently receiving treatment in another investigational device or drug study, or less than 4 weeks since ending treatment on another investigational device or drug study(ies). Other investigational procedures while participating in this study are excluded. Other Exclusions - Male subjects with a female partner of childbearing potential who are unwilling to practice sexual abstinence (refrain from heterosexual intercourse) or use contraception during treatment and for an additional 6 months after the last dose of AMG 509. Refer to Section 12.5 for additional contraceptive information. - Subject has known sensitivity to any components of AMG 509 to be administered during dosing. - Subject likely to not be available to complete all protocol-required study visits or procedures, and/or to comply with all required study procedures (eg, Clinical Outcome Assessments) to the best of the subject and investigator's knowledge. - History or evidence of any other clinically significant disorder, condition or disease (with the exception of those outlined above) that, in the opinion of the investigator or Amgen physician, if consulted, would pose a risk to subject safety or interfere with the study evaluation, procedures or completion.

Dose exploration phase
The dose exploration phase of the study will estimate the MTD of AMG 509 using a Bayesian logistic regression model (BLRM; Neuenschwander et al, 2008). Recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) may be identified based on emerging safety, efficacy, PK, and PD data, as well as patient experience prior to reaching an MTD. Alternative dosing schedule(s) (including a third step dose) may be explored based on emerging efficacy, safety, PK data and patient experience.
  • Drug: AMG 509
    AMG 509 administered as an intravenous (IV) infusion in subjects with Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC).
Dose expansion phase
A dose expansion phase will be conducted to confirm safety, PK, and PD at the MTD or RP2D and to obtain further safety and efficacy data and correlative biomarker analysis.
  • Drug: AMG 509
    AMG 509 administered as an intravenous (IV) infusion in subjects with Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC).
