• Bayesian
  • However recently Bayesian models are also used to estimate the survival rate due to their ability to handle design and analysis issues in clinical research. (wikipedia.org)
  • He won the 2003 John J. Carty Award for the Advancement of Science from the National Academy of Sciences "for his profound contributions to the theory and practice of statistics, including rigorous foundations for Bayesian inference and trenchant analysis of census adjustment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Multivariate
  • Multivariate analysis showed age ( p = 0.005), Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 2 (MEN2) status ( p = 0.021) and distant metastasis ( p = 0.002) to be significant independent predictors of survival. (springer.com)
  • He held several important positions, as the Director of the Indian Statistical Institute, Jawaharlal Nehru Professor and National Professor in India, University Professor at the University of Pittsburgh and Eberly Professor and Chair of Statistics and Director of the Center for Multivariate Analysis at the Pennsylvania State University. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other areas he worked in include multivariate analysis, estimation theory, and differential geometry. (wikipedia.org)
  • Functions
  • I do remember giving a talk in my Biostats school about playing Russian roulette by varying the number of bullets over a series of plays to represent various hazard (individual and group) functions we were entertaining in modeling survival data. (andrewgelman.com)
  • Estimators
  • He was a distinguished mathematical statistician whose wide-ranging research included the analysis of martingale inequalities, Markov processes, de Finetti's theorem, consistency of Bayes estimators, sampling, the bootstrap, and procedures for testing and evaluating models. (wikipedia.org)
  • Methods
  • This volume is an accessible, data-based introduction to methods of survival analysis. (alibris.com)
  • Each included study may be assigned an objective assessment of methodological quality preferably by using methods conforming to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement (the current guideline) or the high quality standards of Cochrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • distant
  • These include the disease-free survival (DFS) (the period after curative treatment [disease eliminated] when no disease can be detected), the progression-free survival (PFS) (the period after treatment when disease [which could not be eliminated] remains stable, that is, does not progress), and the metastasis-free survival (MFS) or distant metastasis-free survival (DMFS) (the period until metastasis is detected). (wikipedia.org)
  • Models
  • Optimum predictions are derived for familiar survival models and the accuracy of these predictions is investigated. (lancs.ac.uk)
  • clinical
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between survival time after mastectomy and a number of clinical and morphological variables. (scielo.br)
  • Death
  • In the case of biological survival, death is unambiguous, but for mechanical reliability, failure may not be well-defined, for there may well be mechanical systems in which failure is partial, a matter of degree, or not otherwise localized in time. (wikipedia.org)
  • in this context, death or failure is considered an "event" in the survival analysis literature - traditionally only a single event occurs for each subject, after which the organism or mechanism is dead or broken. (wikipedia.org)
  • Times
  • The children who had palliative surgery had longer survival times than those who had corrective surgeries. (redorbit.com)
  • mean
  • Note that in statements of the assumptions underlying regression analyses such as ordinary least squares, the phrase "no multicollinearity" is sometimes used to mean the absence of perfect multicollinearity, which is an exact (non-stochastic) linear relation among the regressors. (wikipedia.org)
  • literature
  • I believe one of the best things in my career development is that I first encountered the scientific process - critically - the analysis of literature, art and culture (i.e. anthropology). (andrewgelman.com)
  • Long term survival is currently even more promising, although this impression is not reflected in the recent literature. (wikipedia.org)
  • medical
  • A descriptive analysis of existing medical conditions in a population of recreational scuba divers in the United States. (wikipedia.org)
  • course
  • This example uses the Acute Myelogenous Leukemia survival data set "aml" from the "survival" package in R. The data set is from Miller (1997) and the question is whether the standard course of chemotherapy should be extended ('maintained') for additional cycles. (wikipedia.org)
  • This course introduces survival analysis in the context of business data mining. (sas.com)
