Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have failed available therapy for the treatment of advanced colorectal cancer, including fluoropyrimidine, irinotecan, oxaliplatin, bevacizumab and for K-ras wild-type (WT) patients, anti-EGFR antibody (cetuximab or panitumumab) containing therapies.
  • For oxaliplatin-based therapy, failure of therapy will also include patients who had oxaliplatin discontinued secondary to toxicity.
