Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of adding bevacizumab to crossover fluoropyrimidine-based chemotherapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer who have experienced disease progression under first line treatment with standard chemotherapy plus bevacizumab. Participants will receive chemotherapy alone, or in combination with bevacizumab. The anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs. Participants are allowed to continue on bevacizumab, even after stopping chemotherapy.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival: Time From Randomization to Death From Any Cause [ Time Frame: within 6.5 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival: Months From Time of First Line Therapy [ Time Frame: within approximately 9.6 years ]
  2. Participants With Progression Free Survival Event [ Time Frame: within 6.5 years ]
  3. Progression Free Survival: Time to Event [ Time Frame: within 6.5 years ]
  4. Response Rate: Percentage of Participants With Best Overall Response, Defined as Confirmed Complete Response (CR) or Partial Response (PR) According to RECIST Criteria [ Time Frame: within 6.5 years ]
  5. Response Rate: Participants With Response Status Based on RECIST Criteria [ Time Frame: within 6.5 years ]
    Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) is a set of published rules that define when tumors in cancer patients improve ("respond"), stay the same ("stabilize"), or worsen ("progress") during treatment.
