Estimating the impact of treatment compliance over time on smoking cessation using data from ecological momentary assessments (EMA)

  title={Estimating the impact of treatment compliance over time on smoking cessation using data from ecological momentary assessments (EMA)},
  author={Yaoyuan Vincent Tan and Donna L. Coffman and Megan E. Piper and Jason A Roy},
  journal={arXiv: Applications},
The Wisconsin Smoker's Health Study (WSHS2) was a longitudinal trial conducted to compare the effectiveness of two commonly used smoking cessation treatments, varenicline and combination nicotine replacement therapy (cNRT) with the less intense standard of care, nicotine patch. The main outcome of the WSHS2 study was that all three treatments had equivalent treatment effects. However, in-depth analysis of the compliance data collected via ecological momentary assessment (EMA) were not analyzed…

Estimation and inference for the mediation effect in a time-varying mediation model
Background Traditional mediation analysis typically examines the relations among an intervention, a time-invariant mediator, and a time-invariant outcome variable. Although there may be a total


Penalized Spline of Propensity Methods for Treatment Comparison
A robust multiple imputation-based approach to causal inference in this setting called PENCOMP is proposed, which builds on the penalized spline of propensity prediction method for missing data problems and tends to outperform doubly robust marginal structural modeling when the weights are variable.
Discussion of “On Bayesian Estimation of Marginal Structural Models”
Olli Saarela,* David A. Stephens, Erica E. moodie, and Marina B. M. Moodie are the first authors to report on the use of nanofiltration membranes for the purpose of detecting Legionnaires' disease in mice.
Tobacco Product Use and Cessation Indicators Among Adults — United States, 2018
Implementing comprehensive population-based interventions in coordination with regulation of the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of all tobacco products can reduce tobacco-related disease and death in the United States.
On Bayesian estimation of marginal structural models
This article formalizes the notion of such a pseudo-population as a data generating mechanism with particular characteristics, and shows that this leads to a natural Bayesian interpretation of IPT weighted estimation, and proposes the first fully Bayesian procedure for estimating parameters of marginal structural models using an IPT weighting.
Extensions of the Penalized Spline of Propensity Prediction Method of Imputation
It is shown that a simplified version of PSPP, which does not center other regressors prior to including them in the prediction model, also has the DR property, and two extended PSPP methods are proposed, namely, stratified PSPP and bivariate PSPP that extend theDR property to inferences about conditional means.
Effects of Nicotine Patch vs Varenicline vs Combination Nicotine Replacement Therapy on Smoking Cessation at 26 Weeks: A Randomized Clinical Trial.
12 weeks of open-label treatment with nicotine patch, varenicline, or C-NRT produced no significant differences in biochemically confirmed rates of smoking abstinence at 26 weeks, and the results raise questions about the relative effectiveness of intense smoking pharmacotherapies.
Accounting for selection bias due to death in estimating the effect of wealth shock on cognition for the Health and Retirement Study
A new algorithm is proposed for the estimation of the treatment effect under PS by imputing the counterfactual survival status and outcomes by restricting analysis to the strata of the population that would survive regardless of negative wealth shock experience.
Mediation analysis with time varying exposures and mediators
We consider causal mediation analysis when exposures and mediators vary over time. We give non‐parametric identification results, discuss parametric implementation and also provide a weighting
