Phase 1

   relapsed or refractory to ≥ 1 course of chemotherapy including an anti-CD20 monoclonal
   antibody, and not eligible for autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) (including
   due to chemorefractory disease). Participants with transformed FL are eligible,
   provided DLBCL or HGBL-DH/TH histology is biopsy-confirmed prior to study entry and a
   treatment regimen as described above has been administered. The Sponsor retains the
   option to limit the number of participants enrolled with transformed FL.

Part 2, Group 2: Patients identified with DE-DLBCL (expression MYC ≥40%, BCL2 > 50%) and or
HGBL-DH/TH, relapsed or refractory to >= 1 course of chemotherapy including an anti-CD20
monoclonal antibody, and not eligible for ASCT (including due to chemorefractory disease).
Patients with transformed follicular lymphoma (FL) are eligible, provided DE-DLBCL and/or
HGBL-DH/TH histology is biopsy-confirmed prior to study entry and a treatment regimen as
described above has been administered. The Sponsor retains the option to limit the number
of participants enrolled with transformed FL.

   - Part 1 and Part 2: Willing to provide the protocol specified tumor biopsy(ies): at
   screening a fresh biopsy (if no archival biopsy tissue of less than 3 months prior to
   treatment and without intercurrent treatment is available); Part 2: Willing to provide
   an additional biopsy on Cycle 2 Day 15 (+ 2 days).

      - Total bilirubin ≤ 2 times upper limit of normal (ULN). (Participants with known
      Gilbert's disease who has serum bilirubin ≤ 3 × ULN may be enrolled).

   days), as specified below:

      - Hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL

      - Platelet count ≥ 75,000 (platelets/μL)

   - Uncontrolled symptomatic hypercalcemia.

   - Acceptable coagulation status, as specified below:

      - Prothrombin time (PT) and partial thromboplastin time (PTT) ≤ 1.2 × ULN (unless
      receiving anticoagulation therapy, if receiving anticoagulation therapy,
      eligibility will be based upon international normalized ratio [INR]).

      - INR ≤ 1.6 (unless receiving anticoagulation therapy).

      - If receiving warfarin: INR ≤ 3.0 and no active bleeding (i.e., no bleeding within
      14 days prior to first dose of study therapy).

   - Acceptable method of contraception

Exclusion Criteria

   - Current central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma or leptomeningeal infiltration.

   infarction, within the past 6 months, unstable arrhythmia, or known pericardial

   - Fredericia-corrected QT interval (QTcF) >470 msec (female) or >450 msec (male), or
   history of congenital long QT syndrome.

   - Any electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormality, which in the opinion of the Investigator
   would preclude safe participation in the study.

   - Active, uncontrolled bacterial, viral, or fungal infections, within 7 days of study
   entry requiring systemic therapy.

   - Clinically important respiratory impairment
