  18. History of bleeding diathesis or clinically significant bleeding within 14 days prior to randomization.
  19. History of clinically significant thrombosis within the past 3 months prior to randomization that, in the investigator's opinion, may place the patient at risk of side effects from anti-angiogenesis products.
  20. History of gastrointestinal bleeding, gastric stress ulcerations, or peptic ulcer disease within the past 3 months prior to randomization that, in the investigator's opinion, may place the patient at risk of side effects from anti-angiogenesis products.
  21. Myocardial infarction or unstable angina pectoris within 6 months prior to randomization.
  22. History of severe adverse events, in the investigator's opinion, related to ramucirumab.
  23. History of other significant cardiovascular diseases or vascular diseases within the last 6 months prior to randomization that, in the investigator's opinion, may pose a risk to the patient on VEGF inhibitor therapy.
