less than or equal to 4 weeks, participants can be eligible after ≥ 5 ×
half-lives of that study drug has passed).

colony-stimulating factor formulation: > 2 weeks.

are available for IHC test at central laboratory. If applicable biopsy will be
performed by excisional, incisional or needle puncture (≤18-gauge).
Inclusion Criteria (Part 2 only)
- Measurable disease meeting the following criteria:
1. At least 1 lesion of ≥ 1.0 centimeters (cm) in the longest diameter for a
non-lymph node or ≥ 1.5 cm in the short-axis diameter for a lymph node that is
measurable according to Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1
using computerized tomography/magnetic resonance imaging.
2. Lesions that have had external beam radiotherapy or locoregional therapies such
as radiofrequency ablation must show evidence of progressive disease based on
RECIST 1.1 to be deemed a target lesion.
- Participants histologically diagnosed with the following ovarian carcinoma (including
primary peritoneal carcinoma and fallopian tube carcinoma). Participants for Cohort 1
who have archival resected tumor samples (that is, surgical or excisional/incisional
biopsy sample) for IHC assay are not required to be FRA positive at the central
laboratory (Screening 1 is not required). Participants for Cohort 1 who do not have
archival resected tumor samples (that is, surgical or excisional/incisional biopsy
sample) are required to be FRA positive at the central laboratory (Screening 1 is
required). Participants for Cohort 2 are required to be FRA positive confirmed by IHC
assay at the central laboratory using their available tumor samples from resected
specimen (that is, surgical or excisional/incisional biopsy samples) or core needle
biopsy (<=18-gauge) (Screening 1 is required).
- Cohort 1: High grade serous adenocarcinoma
- Cohort 2: Other histological types (excluding mucinous adenocarcinoma)

within <6 months from completion of last platinum therapy) who have received >=4
cycles in last platinum-containing chemotherapy for ovarian carcinoma Participants who
have received up to two regimens of chemotherapy after diagnosed as platinum-resistant
