* Platelets ≥50,000/ uL. Platelet transfusions are not permitted \<14 days prior to C1D1.
* Hemoglobin ≥ 7 g/dL. RBC transfusions are not permitted \<14 days prior to C1D1.

* Creatinine clearance ≥ 30 ml/min using Cockcroft/Gault formula
* Able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements.
* Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document.

Exclusion Criteria:

* Prior treatment with CD19 targeted therapy.
* Participants who are receiving any other investigational agents.

* History of a non-lymphoma malignancy, except adequately treated local basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, cervical carcinoma in situ, superficial bladder cancer, localized prostate cancer, other adequately treated stage 1 or 2 cancer currently in complete remission, or any other cancer that is in a complete remission.
* Prior or ongoing clinically significant illness, medical condition, surgical history, physical finding, EKG finding, or laboratory abnormality that, in the investigator's opinion, could affect the safety of the patient; alter the absorption, distribution, metabolism or excretion of the study drug; or impair the assessment of study results.
