Individualized Dynamic Prediction of Survival under Time-Varying Treatment Strategies

  title={Individualized Dynamic Prediction of Survival under Time-Varying Treatment Strategies},
  author={Grigorios Papageorgiou and Mostafa M. Mokhles and Johanna J. M. Takkenberg and Dimitris Rizopoulos},
  journal={arXiv: Applications},
Often in follow-up studies intermediate events occur in some patients, such as reinterventions or adverse events. These intermediate events directly affect the shapes of their longitudinal profiles. Our work is motivated by two studies in which such intermediate events have been recorded during follow-up. The first study concerns Congenital Heart Diseased patients who were followed-up echocardiographically, with several patients undergoing reintervention. The second study concerns patients who…

Dynamic predictions with time‐dependent covariates in survival analysis using joint modeling and landmarking

This work presents and compares two statistical techniques that provide dynamically updated estimates of survival probabilities, namely landmark analysis and joint models for longitudinal and time‐to‐event data.

Individual dynamic predictions using landmarking and joint modelling: Validation of estimators and robustness assessment

This paper formally defines the quantity to estimate and its estimators, proposes techniques to assess the uncertainty around predictions and validate them, and conducts an in-depth simulation study to compare the derived estimators of dynamic predictions.

Comparison of joint modeling and landmarking for dynamic prediction under an illness‐death model

Considering an illness-death model, the residual time distribution is derived and it is demonstrated that the structure of the Cox model baseline hazard and covariate effects under the landmarking approach do not have simple form.

Individualized dynamic prediction of prostate cancer recurrence with and without the initiation of a second treatment: Development and validation

This paper aims to develop and validate dynamic individual predictions that allow the possibility of a new treatment in order to help understand the benefit of initiating new treatments during the monitoring period of oncology.

Combining Dynamic Predictions From Joint Models for Longitudinal and Time-to-Event Data Using Bayesian Model Averaging

The aim of this article is to highlight the importance of modeling the association structure between the longitudinal and event time responses that can greatly influence the derived predictions, and to illustrate how the accuracy of thederived predictions can be improved by suitably combining joint models with different association structures.

Extension of the association structure in joint models to include weighted cumulative effects

An extension to the standard formulation of joint models for longitudinal and survival outcomes, wherein the longitudinal outcome has a cumulative effect on the hazard of the event, weighted by recency, is postulated.

A joint model for survival and longitudinal data measured with error.

This work argues that the Cox proportional hazards regression model method is superior to naive methods where one maximizes the partial likelihood of the Cox model using the observed covariate values and improves on two-stage methods where empirical Bayes estimates of the covariate process are computed and then used as time-dependent covariates.

Identification and efficacy of longitudinal markers for survival.

A score test for association which requires only standard methods for implementation is derived for the initial identification of candidate biomarkers and methods for assessing efficacy of markers are discussed and a measure contrasting conditional and marginal distributions is proposed.

Combined dynamic predictions using joint models of two longitudinal outcomes and competing risk data

This paper proposes to jointly model multiple longitudinal measurements combined with competing risk survival outcomes and derive the dynamically updated cumulative incidence functions and investigates whether different features of the longitudinal processes would change significantly the prediction for the events of interest by considering different types of association structures.
