  journal={arXiv: Methodology},
The proportional hazards (PH) model is arguably one of the most popular models used to analyze time to event data arising from clinical trials and longitudinal studies, among many others. In many such studies, the event time of interest is not directly observed but is known relative to periodic examination times; i.e., practitioners observe either current status or interval-censored data. The analysis of data of this structure is often fraught with many difficulties. Further exacerbating this… Expand
Simultaneous Estimation and Variable Selection for Interval-Censored Data With Broken Adaptive Ridge Regression
A broken adaptive ridge (BAR) regression procedure that combines the strengths of the quadratic regularization and the adaptive weighted bridge shrinkage and establishes both the oracle property and the grouping effect of the proposed BAR procedure. Expand
Study design with staggered sampling times for evaluating sustained unresponsiveness to peanut sublingual immunotherapy.
This work delineates an altered study design of a pre-existing clinical trial that is currently being implemented in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and proposes and discusses aspects of the altered design that would allow it to study sustained unresponsiveness (SU).

A semiparametric probit model for case 2 interval-censored failure time data.
This paper proposes to approximate the unknown nonparametric nondecreasing function in the probit model with a linear combination of monotone splines, leading to only a finite number of parameters to estimate. Expand
Bayesian proportional hazards model for current status data with monotone splines
This paper focuses on current status data and proposes an efficient and easy-to-implement Bayesian approach under the proportional hazards model, model the baseline cumulative hazard function with monotone splines leading to only a finite number of parameters to estimate while maintaining great modeling flexibility.

Maximum likelihood estimation for interval-censored data using a Weibull-based accelerated failure time model.
This report studies the use of a Weibull-based accelerated failure time regression model when left- and interval-censored data are also observed, and the maximum likelihood estimates for the observed censoring pattern are computed. Expand
A flexible, computationally efficient method for fitting the proportional hazards model to interval-censored data.
A novel expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm is developed for finding the maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters in the proportional hazards model, which uses a monotone spline representation to approximate the unknown nondecreasing cumulative baseline hazard function. Expand
Interval censoring.
Estimation of a survival function, comparison of several treatments and regression analysis as well as competing risks analysis and truncation in the presence of interval censoring are discussed. Expand
Semiparametric bayes' proportional odds models for current status data with underreporting.
A semiparametric Bayesian proportional odds model is proposed in which the baseline event time distribution is estimated nonparametrically by using adaptive monotone splines in a logistic regression model and the potential risk factors are included in the parametric part of the mean structure.

Multiple imputation for threshold-crossing data with interval censoring.
New methods based on multiple imputation of the threshold-crossing time with use of models that take into account values recorded at the times of visits are presented. Expand

A semiparametric nonmixture cure model for the regression analysis of interval-censored time-to-event data is presented and the strong consistency of the maximum likelihood estimators under the Hellinger distance is proved. Expand
Semiparametric regression analysis of interval-censored data.
A semiparametric approach to the proportional hazards regression analysis of interval-censored data and found multiple imputation to yield an easily computed variance estimate that appears to be more reliable than asymptotic methods with small to moderately sized data sets. Expand
Regression analysis of bivariate current status data under the Gamma-frailty proportional hazards model using the EM algorithm
