January 2011   (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Each patient must meet all of the following inclusion criteria to be enrolled in the study:

  1. Patients must have histological or cytological diagnosis of a hematological malignancy of the following types that has relapsed or was refractory to prior therapy:

    • Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma
    • Mantle cell lymphoma
    • Burkitt's lymphoma
    • Precursor B-lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma
    • T-cell lymphoma, excluding primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma
    • Transformed follicular lymphoma with ≥ 50% diffuse large cell component
  2. Male or female patients 18 years or older
  3. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0-2
  4. Measurable disease

Exclusion criteria include the following:

  1. Pregnant or lactating females
  2. Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive or AIDS-related illness
  3. Any serious medical or psychiatric illness that could interfere with the completion of treatment
  4. Total bilirubin ≥ 1.5 × the upper limit of normal (ULN)
  5. Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≥ 2.5 × the ULN. AST, ALT may be elevated up to 5 times the ULN if their elevation can be reasonably ascribed to their underlying hematological disorder.

  10. Patients who have undergone allogeneic stem cell or organ transplantation
  11. Systemic antineoplastic therapy within 14 days preceding the first dose of study drug treatment
  12. Patients who have received treatment with nitrosoureas, mitomycin C, rituximab, alemtuzumab, or other unconjugated antibody treatment, within 42 days
  13. Patients who have received treatment with radioimmunoconjugates or within 12 weeks
  14. Patients who have received radiotherapy within 21 days prior to first dose
  15. Myocardial infarction within 6 months of enrollment or current history of New York Heart Association(NYHA) Class III or IV heart failure, uncontrolled angina, severe uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmias, or electrocardiographic evidence of acute ischemia
  16. Major surgery within 14 days prior to the first dose
  17. Infection requiring systemic antibiotic therapy within 14 days prior to the first dose or other serious infection
  18. Clinically uncontrolled central nervous system (CNS) involvement.
  19. Inability to swallow capsules
