Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival [ Time Frame: When at least 508 events of death have occurred, which is estimated will occur 12 months after the date of randomization of the last patient ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Disease control rate [ Time Frame: Estimated will be assessed 12 months after the date of randomization of the last patient ]
    The percentages of patients with complete or partial response of any duration or stable disease lasting at least 6 weeks from the date of randomization (revised RECIST)

  2. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Estimated will be assessed 12 months after the date of randomization of the last patient ]
    Calculated from the date of randomization to the date when disease progression is first documented or when the patient dies within 60 days of the last lesion assessment

  3. Response rate in patients with measurable disease [ Time Frame: Estimated will be assessed 12 months after the date of randomization of the last patient ]
    The percentages of patients with complete or partial response (revised RECIST)

  4. Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Through 30 days after the last dose of study medication ]
    The percentages of patients who experience adverse events by specific adverse event term

  3. ECOG performance status 0 or 1
  4. Treatment with only 1 prior regimen (as first-line therapy) that must have included a fluoropyrimidine and a platinum-containing agent (Prior adjuvant or neo-adjuvant chemotherapy acceptable provided 6 months elapsed between the end of this therapy and the start of first-line therapy.)
  5. Disease progression after the start of the 1 prior regimen based on computed tomography
  6. Adequate bone marrow, hepatic, and renal function
  7. Ability to swallow an oral solid-dosage form of medication

Key exclusion criteria:

  5. HER2-positive disease if the patient has not previously been treated with an anti-HER2 agent
  6. Uncontrolled diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting
  7. Known malabsorptive disorder
  8. Significant medical disease other than gastric cancer
  9. Presence of neuropathy > Grade 1 (NCI Common Toxicity Criteria)
  10. Prior treatment (including adjuvant therapy) with a taxane or other tubulin-targeted agent (indibulin, eribulin, etc.)
  11. Prior radiation therapy to more than 25% of the bone marrow
  12. Need to continue any regularly-taken medication that is a potent inhibitor or inducer of the CYP3A pathway
  13. Pregnancy or lactation
