After one year of treatment PRDFS rate in Viscum arm was 55.6%, compared to historical 12% rate: P = 0.0041; 95% CI (21.2%; 86.3%) (five out of nine patients) and it was 27.3%, P = 0.2724; 95% CI (6.0%; 61.0%) for Etoposide arm (three out of eleven patients) (see Figure 1).
Until July 2013 in the Viscum arm the median PRDFS (including censored dates) is 39 months (range 2-73 months).
