Table 6 Pearson correlations between the values of model parameter \(ln\left( {a_{pem} } \right)\) and the clinical personal measures

From: Predicting response to pembrolizumab in metastatic melanoma by a new personalization algorithm

Potential clinical covariate Pearson correlation coefficient Significance (p-value)
Age 0.051 0.77
Breslow thickness − 0.089 0.53
LDH − 0.573 9.2 × 10−6
LY% 0.370 0.01
SOD at the baseline − 0.703 3.5 × 10 −9
  1. Among the tested clinical measures, the baseline sum of diameters (SOD) was found to be most significantly correlated with \(\ln \left( {a_{pem} } \right)\) (in italics)
