  1. Survival and progression status are summarized as n (%) by treatment; Survival time- and progression time-related data are summarized as median (95%CI) by treatment
  2. Differences between treatments were compared using Pearson Chi-square test / or Fisher’s exact test for survival and progression status and Log-rank test for survival time or progression time
  3. Bold p-values indicate statistical significance (p < 0.05)
