Note: Central confirmation of adenocarcinoma is not required for study entry. However, tissue blocks, or slides, must be submitted to confirm the diagnoses by a Sponsor-designated central laboratory retrospectively and/or exploratory biomarker analyses.
  7. Willingness and ability to provide tumor paired biopsies during the study participation in order to perform exploratory studies. At the study entry, the most recent tumor biopsy since last progression from either metastatic or primary tissues will be provided.

Note: Patients receiving growth factors or blood transfusions within 14 days before obtaining the hematology values at screening will be excluded.
  10. Hepatic: Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (× ULN) (≤ 3 x ULN in the case of Gilbert's disease); Aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (ALT) ≤ 2.5 × ULN (in the case of liver metastases ≤ 5 × ULN); Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) ≤ 2.5 × ULN (≤ 5 × ULN inthe case of liver and/or bone metastases).
  11. Renal: Serum creatinine < 1.5 × ULN or creatinine clearance ≥ 30 mL/min based on Cockcroft-Gault glomerular filtration rate estimation.
  12. Coagulation: International normalized ratio (INR) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) ≤ 1.5 x ULN unless on medication known to alter INR and/or aPTT.
  13. Nutritional status: Serum Albumin ≥ 2.8 g/dL.
  14. Bisphosphonates or denosumab dosage must have been stable for at least 4 weeks before Day 1 for patients receiving these therapies.
  15. Patients must agree to use a condom when is engaged in sexual activity with a pregnant woman during the treatment period and for at least 90 days after last dose of enzalutamide or at least 120 days after last dose of talazoparib (PF-06944076), whichever occurs later. Patients must also agree to use an additional highly effective form of contraception or two effective contraceptive methods, when is engaged in sexual intercourse with a woman of childbearing potential during the treatment period and for at least 90 days after last dose of enzalutamide or at least 120 days after last dose of talazoparib (PF-06944076), whichever occurs later.
  16. Must agree to refrain to donate sperm during the treatment period and for at least 90 days after last dose of enzalutamide or at least 120 days after last dose of talazoparib (PF-06944076), whichever occurs later.
  17. PSA ≥ 4 ng/mL at diagnosis or before starting ADT therapy.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Prior treatment with enzalutamide, apalutamide, darolutamide or abiraterone acetate.
  2. History of malabsorption syndrome or other condition that would interfere with enteral absorption or results in the inability or unwillingness to swallow pills.
  3. Known hypersensitivity to recombinant proteins, or any excipient contained in the drug formulation for talazoparib (PF-06944076) and enzalutamide.
  4. Prior systemic therapy for metastatic prostate cancer (mPCa). Note: Initiation of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) within 4 weeks prior to study entry would be allowed (with or without first-generation antiandrogens), providing a tumor biopsy sample was taken prior to initiation of ADT is made available for biomarker studies and upon approval by the sponsor. If patient was started on first-generation antiandrogens, these would be discontinued on prior to randomization. Note: Patients relapsing after having received an ADT-based regimen in neoadjuvant or adjuvant setting will be suitable for the study if metastatic progression occured while on non-castrate testosterone levels or at least 12 months after discontinuation of ADT.
  5. Treatment with approved or investigational cancer therapy within 28 days (or 5 half-lives of the drug- whichever is longer) prior to initiation of study treatment.
  6. Known or suspected brain metastases or active leptomeningeal disease.
  7. Symptomatic or impending spinal cord compression or cauda equina syndrome.
  8. Subject has a history of seizure or any condition that may predispose to seizure (i.e. prior significant brain trauma, brain vascular malformations, ...), or subjects that have had unexplained loss of consciousness or transient ischemic attacks within 1 year prior to scheduled Day 1 of treatment.
  9. Therapeutic radiation therapy within 14 days (seven days for limited-field palliative radiotherapy) prior to study enrolment, or patients who have not recovered from radiotherapy-related toxicities to grade ≤ 1 according to National Cancer Insitute ́s Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) version (v.)5.
  10. Major surgery (defined as requiring general anesthesia) or significant traumatic injury within 14 days of start of study drugs, or patients who have not recovered from the side effects of any major surgery.

  16. Symptomatic pericarditis or clinically significant pericardial effusion or myocarditis.
  17. Documented congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association functional classification III- IV).
  18. Uncontrolled, persistent hypertension defined as systolic blood pressure > 170 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure > 100 mmHg.
  19. Patients have any of the following cardiac conduction abnormalities:
  20. Ventricular arrhythmias except for benign premature ventricular contractions.
  21. Supraventricular and nodal arrhythmias requiring a pacemaker or not controlled with medication.
