  1. • HRs correspond to a 10-point increment for QoL scores.
  2. • 2 sets of multivariate models were constructed: one for global QoL and other for all general function and symptom variables combined.
  3. • Multivariate model (for general function and symptom variables combined) adjusted for prior treatment history and all baseline QoL variables.
  4. • Multivariate model for global QoL adjusted for prior treatment history.
