#' Delta synergy score based on Loewe model
#'
#' A function to calculate Loewe synergy score based on Loewe model
#'
#' @param response.mat a dose-response matrix with concentrations as row names and column names
#' @param correction a parameter to specify if baseline correction is used or not. Defaults to TRUE.
#' @param Emin the minimal effect of the drug used in the 4-parameter log-logistic function to fit the dose-response 
#' curve. If it is not NA, it is fixed the value assigned by the user. Defaults to NA. It is used only when correction
#' is required.
#' @param Emax the maximal effect of the drug used in the 4-parameter log-logistic function to fit the dose-response 
#' curve. If it is not NA, it is fixed the value assigned by the user. Defaults to NA. It is used only when correction
#' is required.
#' @param nan.handle a parameter to specify if L.4 function or LL.4 function is used when fitting with LL.4 produces
#' NaNs.
#' @return A matrix of Loewe synergy scores for all the dose pairs for a drug combination. For a does pair with at least one zero concentration, 0 is used as the synergy score.
