Supplementary Material

Supplementary Figure 1 shows all estimated models using the different training sets in the Leave-one-out cross-validation (LOOCV). LOOCV was applied as a useful technique for assessing the performance of the model. One sample is removed from the initial 14 sample dataset, leaving a temporary 13 sample training set and one left out-sample. The R-squared measurement indicates the models goodness of fit. Supplementary Table 1 provides the clinicopathological data of the 14 PDAC patients including their overall survival. Supplementary Table 2 compares the real and estimated overall survival for the 14 PDAC patients. Finally, supplementary Table 3 lists the whole normalized data of the cytokine antibody array.
