Comparison between two partial likelihood approaches for the competing risks model with missing cause of failure.

Abstract

In many clinical studies where time to failure is of primary interest, patients may fail or die from one of many causes where failure time can be right censored. In some circumstances, it might also be the case that patients are known to die but the cause of death information is not available for some patients. Under the assumption that cause of death is… (More)
