Regression analysis of mean quality-adjusted survival time based on pseudo-observations
(JOHN WILEY & SONS LTD, 2009)
Regression models for the mean quality-adjusted survival time are specified from hazard functions of transitions between two states and the mean quality-adjusted survival time may be a complex function of covariates. We ...
A flexible model for survival data with a cure rate: a Bayesian approach
(ROUTLEDGE JOURNALS, TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2011)
In this paper we deal with a Bayesian analysis for right-censored survival data suitable for populations with a cure rate. We consider a cure rate model based on the negative binomial distribution, encompassing as a special ...
A hands-on approach for fitting long-term survival models under the GAMLSS framework
(ELSEVIER IRELAND LTD, 2010)
In many data sets from clinical studies there are patients insusceptible to the occurrence of the event of interest. Survival models which ignore this fact are generally inadequate. The main goal of this paper is to describe ...
A Bayesian analysis of the Conway-Maxwell-Poisson cure rate model
(SPRINGERNEW YORK, 2012)
The purpose of this paper is to develop a Bayesian analysis for the right-censored survival data when immune or cured individuals may be present in the population from which the data is taken. In our approach the number ...
A Bayesian Long-term Survival Model Parametrized in the Cured Fraction
(WILEY-V C H VERLAG GMBH, 2009)
The main goal of this paper is to investigate a cure rate model that comprehends some well-known proposals found in the literature. In our work the number of competing causes of the event of interest follows the negative ...
Survival analysis: A consumer-friendly method to estimate the optimum sucrose level in probiotic petit suisse
(American Dairy Science Association, 2015-11)
For years, just-about-right (JAR) scales have been among the most used techniques to obtain sensory information about consumer perception, but recently, some researchers have harshly criticized the technique. The present ...
