    An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant who received study drug without regard to possibility of causal relationship. A serious adverse event (SAE) is an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly.

  • Part 2: Relapse-Free survival for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (RFS for ALL) [ Time Frame: Approximately 2 Years ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Dose Escalation: Participants With Certain B-Cell Malignancies
During accelerated dose titration in Group 1, participant will receive duvortuxizumab starting at 0.5 nanogram per kilogram (ng/kg) for biweekly dosing. Dose will be increased by half logarithmic steps in subsequent Dose Level (DL). After safety stopping criteria are met, Dose Escalation (DE) in Group 1 will transition to 3+3 design, and will continue until the Maximum tolerated Dose (MTD) is defined. DE in Groups 2 and 3 will follow 3+3 design, begin after initial dose level in Group 1 is deemed safe and recommended phase 2 doses (RP2D) for Part 1 of study can be decided. Duvortuxizumab at a starting dose of 50 ng/kg weekly will also be investigated in Group 1 and will follow 3+3 study design continue until the MTD or Maximum administered dose (MAD) is reached. Disease-specific dose escalation in Group 2 and 3 will not be initiated until dose in Group 1 is determined safe.
Drug: Part 1 (Dose Escalation): Duvortuxizumab
Participants currently enrolled in the study will continue to receive duvortuxizumab every 14 days (biweekly dosing) in each 28 ‑day cycle as an intravenous infusion. In the priming dose regimen, a priming dose will be administered on Day 1 followed by full doses on Day 8 and Day 22, of a 35-day Cycle 1, and then every 14 days in each subsequent 28-day cycle. The cohorts will be opened where participants will receive duvortuxizumab every 7 days (for investigating weekly dosing schedule) in each 28‑day cycle as an intravenous infusion. In the priming dose regimen, a priming dose will be administered on Day 1 followed by full doses on Day 8, Day 15, Day 22, and Day 28 of a 35-day Cycle 1, and then every 7 days in each subsequent 28-day cycle.

Detailed Description:
This first in human study consists of 2 parts: a) The dose escalation part and b) The dose expansion part. This is an openlabel (all participants know the identity of the intervention), multicenter (more than one study site) study to evaluate the safety, establish a recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D), and to determine the preliminary efficacy of duvortuxizumab in participants with relapsed or refractory B cell malignancies. The dose escalation part of the trial (Part 1) will be comprised of 3 different patient groups based on disease indication: Group 1 (DLBCL, FL, MCL); Group 2 (CLL); Group 3 (ALL). The duvortuxizumab dosing will be done on biweekly and weekly basis. Duvortuxizumab weekly escalating dosing will be investigated. Dose escalation will begin with Group 1 and will initially follow an accelerated dose titration design, followed by a traditional 3+3 design. At each dose escalation level the treatment of the second participant should be initiated after at least 72 hours of observation after the start of the first duvortuxizumab dose of the first participant. Dose escalation in Groups 2 and 3 will follow a 3+3 design and will begin after the initial dose level in Group 1 is deemed safe. Participants [Group 1 (DLBCL, FL, MCL), Group 2 (CLL) Group 3 (ALL)] are enrolled into cohorts of increasing dose levels of duvortuxizumab administered in 28 day treatment cycles. Up to 3 RP2Ds may be determined in Part 1 (one RP2D for Group 1, one RP2D for Group 2, and one RP2D for Group 3). In the cohort expansion part of the trial (Part 2), participants with relapsed or refractory B cell malignancies (DLBCL, FL, MCL, CLL and ALL) will be enrolled according to tumor type in up to 5 cohorts and receive duvortuxizumab at the RP2D determined in Part 1 for their disease type. The study consists of 3 periods: Screening period (up to 28 days prior to the first dose of study drug); Treatment period [first dose of study drug until the End of Treatment Visit (within 30 days after the last dose)]; and follow up period [End of Treatment Visit and continue until death, lost to follow up, consent withdrawal, or study end (as determined by the sponsor), whichever occurs first]. Number of participants who achieve an overall response in each Dose Expansion cohort will be evaluated primarily. Participants' safety will be monitored throughout the study.
