Competing Risks Regression for Clustered Data via the Marginal Additive Subdistribution Hazard Model

  title={Competing Risks Regression for Clustered Data via the Marginal Additive Subdistribution Hazard Model},
  author={Xinyuan Chen and Denise Esserman and Fan Li},
A population-averaged additive subdistribution hazard model is proposed to assess the marginal effects of covariates on the cumulative incidence function to analyze correlated failure time data subject to competing risks. This approach extends the population-averaged additive hazard model by accommodating potentially dependent censoring due to competing events other than the event of interest. Assuming an independent working correlation structure, an estimating equations approach is considered… Expand

An additive subdistribution hazard model for competing risks data
ABSTRACT The cumulative incidence function plays an important role in assessing its treatment and covariate effects with competing risks data. In this article, we consider an additive hazard modelExpand
Competing risks regression for clustered data.
A population average regression model is proposed to assess the marginal effects of covariates on the cumulative incidence function when there is dependence across individuals within a cluster in theExpand
Estimating and testing for center effects in competing risks.
An alternate estimation procedure to the one proposed by Katsahian et al. is introduced, based on the penalized partial likelihood approach often used in fitting Gaussian frailty proportional hazards models in the standard survival analysis context, and has the advantage of usingstandard survival analysis software.

Model checking for additive hazards model with multivariate survival data
Multivariate failure time data often arise in biomedical studies due to natural or artificial clustering. With appropriate adjustment for the underlying correlation, the marginal additive hazardsExpand
A competing risks model for correlated data based on the subdistribution hazard
The proposed multivariate SDH model yields marginal interpretations of the regression coefficients while allowing the correlation structure to be specified by a frailty term and generally offers improved performance in terms of bias and efficiency when a sufficient number of events is observed.

Additive hazards model with multivariate failure time data
Marginal additive hazards models are considered for multivariate survival data in which individuals may experience events of several types and there may also be correlation between individuals.Expand
Hierarchical likelihood inference on clustered competing risks data.
The hierarchical likelihood method is proposed to infer the cause-specific hazard frailty model for clustered competing risks data and incorporates fixed effects as well as random effects into an extended likelihood function, so that the method does not require intensive numerical methods to find the marginal distribution.

A Proportional Hazards Regression Model for the Sub-distribution with Covariates Adjusted Censoring Weight for Competing Risks Data.
This paper considers a covariate-adjusted weight function by fitting the Cox model for the censoring distribution and using the predictive probability for each individual using the data from the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR). Expand
Competing risk failure time data occur frequently in medical studies, and a number of methods have been proposed for the analysis of these data. To assess covariate effects, a standard approach is toExpand
A Proportional Hazards Model for the Subdistribution of a Competing Risk
This article proposes methods for combining estimates of the cause-specific hazard functions under the proportional hazards formulation, but these methods do not allow the analyst to directly assess the effect of a covariate on the marginal probability function. Expand
