  1. For each individual drug a linear regression analysis was performed comparing survival time and drug efficiency or adjusted drug efficiency. The explanatory value (R2) and p-values are sorted according to the largest gain in explanatory value when adjusting the drug efficiency. Statistically significant departure of the slope from 0 was accepted at p < 0.05 and were found for prednisolone and drug efficiency as well as for topotecan and methotrexate, both for drug efficiency and when adjusting the drug efficiency.
