Documented B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL), which under WHO Guidelines is now referred to as precursor B-lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma
Must have failed at least 1 treatment regimen for B-ALL, which under WHO Guidelines is now referred to as precursor B-lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma
Performance status of ≤2 by Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) criteria
Any age is allowed
Life expectancy of at least 3 months
Adequate liver function (aspartate transaminase [AST] and/or alanine transaminase [ALT] not >3 times upper limits of normal [ULN])
Adequate kidney function (calculated creatinine clearance >40 mL/min)
Negative serum or urine pregnancy test within 2 to 7 days prior to the start of study treatment in females of childbearing potential
Females of childbearing potential and males must be willing and able to use an adequate method of contraception to avoid pregnancy for the duration of the study in such a manner that the risk of pregnancy is minimized. Acceptable contraceptives include intra-uterine devices (IUDs), hormonal contraceptives (oral, depot, patch, or injectable) and double barrier methods such as condoms or diaphragms with spermicidal gel or foam.
Signed informed consent form (ICF), minor assent form (if applicable), prior to start of any study-specific procedures
Active serious infection not controlled by oral or intravenous antibiotics
Treatment with any investigational antileukemic agent or chemotherapy agent in the last 7 days prior to study entry and lack of full recovery from side effects due to prior therapy independent of when that therapy was given
Rapidly progressive disease with compromised organ function judged to be life-threatening by the Investigator
Patients with clinical evidence of active central nervous system (CNS) disease
Concurrent treatment with other anticancer agents
Pregnant and/or lactating female
