  • Histologically or cytologically confirmed metastatic colorectal cancer (patients are eligible to enroll irrespective of KRAS mutation status)
  • Confirmed metastatic colorectal cancer
  • The patient has received first-line combination therapy of bevacizumab, oxaliplatin, and a fluoropyrimidine for metastatic disease and a)Experienced radiographic disease progression during first-line therapy, or b)Experienced radiographic disease progression within 6 months after the last dose of first-line therapy, or c)Discontinued part or all of first-line therapy due to toxicity and experienced radiographic disease progression within 6 months after the last dose of first-line therapy; Note that a patient must have received a minimum of 2 doses of bevacizumab as part of a first-line regimen containing chemotherapy; Note that a patient must not have received more than 2 different fluoropyrimidines as part of a first-line regimen; disease progression is not an acceptable reason for discontinuing one fluoropyrimidine and starting a second fluoropyrimidine
  • Receipt of no more than 2 prior systemic chemotherapy regimens in any setting (only 1 prior regimen for metastatic disease is permitted); For patients with rectal cancer, sequential neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy will count as a single systemic regimen

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1
  • Adequate hematologic, renal, hepatic and coagulation function
  • Consent to provide a historical colorectal cancer tissue sample for assessment of biomarkers and the tumor tissue sample is available
  • Ability to provide signed informed consent
Exclusions (conditions that would prevent participation in this study)
  • Receipt of bevacizumab within 28 days prior to randomization
  • Receipt of any investigational therapy within 28 days prior to randomization
  • Receipt of any previous systemic therapy, other than a combination of bevacizumab, oxaliplatin, and a fluoropyrimidine, for first-line treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer
  • Known leptomeningeal disease or brain metastases or uncontrolled spinal cord compression
  • Experience of any arterial thrombotic or arterial thromboembolic events, including, but not limited to myocardial infarction, transient ischemic attack, or cerebrovascular accident, within 12 months prior to randomization
  • Pregnant (confirmed by serum beta human chorionic gonadotropin [ß HCG] test within 7 days prior to randomization) or lactating
  • History of inflammatory bowel disease or Crohn's disease requiring medical intervention (immunomodulatory or immunosuppressive medications or surgery) in the 12 months prior to randomization
  • Acute or subacute bowel obstruction or history of chronic diarrhea which is considered clinically significant in the opinion of the investigator
  • Grade 3 or higher bleeding event within 3 months prior to randomization
  • Experience of any of the following during first-line therapy with a bevacizumab-containing regimen: an arterial thrombotic/thromboembolic event, Grade 4 hypertension, Grade 4 proteinuria, a Grade 3-4 bleeding event, or bowel perforation
  • Known history or clinical evidence of Gilbert's Syndrome, or is known to have any of the following genotypes: UGT1A1*6/*6, UGT1A1*28/*28, or UGT1A1*6/*28
  • Known allergy to any of the study treatment components, including any components used in the preparation of ramucirumab, or other contraindication to receive the study treatments
