- Dose Escalation Part: Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D) of Farletuzumab Ecteribulin [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 (Cycle length is equal to [=] 21 days) ]
- Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: From date of first dose of study drug until first documentation of CR or PR (up to approximately 24 weeks) ]ORR is defined as the percentage of participants with a best overall response (BOR) of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR), based on the investigator assessment of radiologic response according to Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1.
- Number of Participants With Dose-limiting Toxicities (DLTs) [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 (Cycle length=21 days) ]DLTs are any of the toxicities occurring during Cycle 1 and assessed by the investigator as related to study drug. Toxicity will be evaluated according to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 5.0 (NCI CTCAE 5.0).

SAE: as any untoward medical occurrence that at any dose; resulted in death, was life-threatening, required inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, resulted in persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or resulted incongenital anomaly/birth defect. AEIs are AEs that may be associated with the use of immunomodulatory drugs, such as infections, malignancies, autoimmune disorders, and injection reactions. Number of participants with AEIs were reported based on safety assessment of participants with interstitial lung disease (ILD), severity of ILD, time to resolution and onset of ILD symptoms and deaths due to ILD.
- Duration of Response (DOR) [ Time Frame: From first documented CR or PR until first documentation of recurrent or progressive disease or death (up to approximately 4 years 8 months) ]DOR is defined as the time from the first date of documented CR or PR to the date of disease progression or death, whichever occurs first. It will be calculated for participants whose BOR is CR or PR. DOR will be assessed according to RECIST version 1.1.
- Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until first documentation of CR or PR or SD (up to approximately 4 years 8 months) ]DCR is defined as the percentage of participants with BOR of CR, PR, or stable disease (SD). DCR will be assessed according to RECIST version 1.1.
- Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until disease progression or death, whichever occurs first (up to approximately 4 years 8 months) ]CBR is defined as the percentage of participants with BOR of CR, PR, or durable SD (duration of SD greater than or equal to [>=] 23 weeks). Duration of SD is defined as the time from the date of first dose to the date of the first documentation of disease progression or death, whichever occurs first. It will be calculated for participants whose BOR is SD. CBR will be assessed according to RECIST version 1.1.
- Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until disease progression, death, whichever occurs first (up to approximately 4 years 8 months) ]PFS is defined as the time from the date of first dose to the date of the first documentation of disease progression or death, whichever occurs first.

For the participants who are alive or lost to follow up, OS is censored as the date of last known alive date or the date of data cutoff, whichever comes first. OS will be calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method.
- Number of Participants With Clinically Significant Change From Baseline in Clinical Laboratory Values, Vital Signs, Body Weight and 12-lead Electrocardiograms [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 28 days after the last dose of study drug (up to approximately 4 years 8 months) ]
