Inclusion Criteria (Part 3 Prostate Cancer):

  1. Metastatic, castrate resistance, histologically confirmed prostate cancer; continuous medical castration for ≥8 weeks prior to screening.
  2. Effective castration with serum testosterone levels <0.5 ng/mL (50 ng/dL; 1.7 nmol/L).
  3. Have serum GDF15 levels ≥1300 pg/mL.
  4. Have experienced PSA progression under 1 or more lines of ADT in the absence or presence of radiographic and/or clinical progression, who decline or are not eligible to receive chemotherapy.
  5. Have had PSA doubling time of >3 months.


Exclusion Criteria (All parts):

  1. Subject was using immunosuppressive medications within 14 days before Screening with the exception of topical (intranasal, inhaled, and local injection), systemic (prednisone equivalent 10 mg/day or less), or as needed for hypersensitivity reactions such as computed tomography (CT) scan premedication.
