Female patients must be surgically sterile (or have a monogamous partner who is surgically sterile) or be at least 2 years postmenopausal or commit to use 2 acceptable forms of birth control (defined as the use of an intrauterine device (IUD), a barrier method with spermicide, condoms, any form of hormonal contraceptives, or abstinence) for the duration of the study and for 4 months following the last dose of study treatment. Male patients must be sterile (biologically or surgically) or commit to the use of a reliable method of birth control (condoms with spermicide) for the duration of the study and for 4 months following the last dose of study treatment.

Less than 4 weeks have elapsed since patients had a surgery or major procedure
Less than 2 weeks have elapsed from the last treatment date since patients had any radiation therapy
Prior to the initial treatment of study drug,
Less than 2 weeks have elapsed since patients had chemotherapy or hormone therapy (However, patients cannot participate when nitrosoureas or mitomycin was administered within 6 weeks)
Less than 2 weeks have elapsed since patients had anticancer immunotherapy or investigational drug treatment
Less than 6 weeks since cryotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, anhydrous alcohol therapy, or photodynamic therapy
A history of the following cardiovascular diseases in past 5 years:
Congestive heart failure (CHF) that corresponds to Class II or a higher class (or less than 50% of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF)) under New York Heart Association (NYHA) classification
Uncontrolled hypertension (Systolic/Diastolic Blood Pressure (SBP/DBP) >140/90 mmHg) (e.g., patient with SBP/DBP >140/90 mmHg despite the best care including optimizing the anti-hypertensive medication regimen)
Patients with any history of hypertensive crisis or pre-existing hypertensive encephalopathy
Patients with any significant vascular diseases (e.g., aortic aneurysm requiring surgery or recent peripheral artery thrombosis) within 6 months prior to the initial treatment of the investigational product
History of hypersensitivity reactions to any components of the investigational product or other drugs of the same class (humanized/human monoclonal antibody drugs) or paclitaxel
Patients with contraindications to paclitaxel therapy
Patients with persistent, clinically significant toxicities (excluding hair loss) from previous anticancer treatment that corresponds to Grade 2 or a higher grade under NCI-CTCAE v5.0
Symptomatic or uncontrolled central nervous system (CNS) metastasis (However, patients with asymptomatic CNS metastasis can participate provided that systemic corticosteroid treatment was discontinued at least 4 weeks prior to screening and that the patient is radiologically and neurologically stable or improving)
A history of the following hemorrhage-related or gastroenterological disease:
Active hemorrhage, hemorrhagic diathesis, coagulopathy or tumor in great arteries
History of clinically significant gastroenterological disease, such as peptic ulcer, GI bleeding, GI or non-GI fistula, perforation, abdominal abscess, clinical symptoms, and signs of GI obstruction, need for parenteral hydration or nutrition, or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

Severe infection requiring systemic antibiotics, antivirus drugs, etc., or other uncontrolled acute active infectious diseases
Patients with evidence of active hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Patients with positive HBsAg and/or detectable HBV DNA are eligible only if adequately controlled on antiviral therapy according to institutional standards and liver function eligibility criteria are also met. HCV patients showing sustained viral response or patients with immunity to HBV infection may enroll.
