  1. G 0: no AE; G 1: Grade 1 AE, G 2: Grade 2 AE, G 3: Grade 3 AE, G 4: Grade 4 AE, G 5: lethal AE
  2. For each category type, we considered the maximum grade per patient observed over the entire treatment duration
  3. All adverse events, classified as drug-related or not, are summarized in (Additional file 1: Table S1)
  4. *Myalgia has been pooled with peripheral sensory neuropathy because this symptom reflects more a peripheral neurotoxicity than a musculoskeletal disorder in the study setting
