On Share Frailty Cure Model : An Application On Cervical Cancer

  title={On Share Frailty Cure Model : An Application On Cervical Cancer},
  author={M. A. Bilkisu and Engku Muhammad Nazri},
Survival analyses are greatly used in medical research especially frailty models which are mostly used to account for heterogeneity in time-to-event. Over the years treatment of cancer has progressed with some patients being cured from different type of cancer. Survival analysis is more focused on subjects that are less at risk of recurrences, metastasis or death after the first treatment as these set of subjects are regarded as being cured. The general assumption of standard frailty model is…

Cure frailty models for survival data: Application to recurrences for breast cancer and to hospital readmissions for colorectal cancer
To model correlated failure time data incorporating a surviving fraction, several forms of cure rate frailty models are compared and demonstrate great potential in modelling multivariate survival data with long-term survivors (‘cured’ individuals).
Dynamic prediction of risk of death using history of cancer recurrences in joint frailty models
A dynamic prediction tool based on joint frailty models is proposed and compared three prediction settings, taking into account three different information levels for patients diagnosed with a primary invasive breast cancer and treated with breast‐conserving surgery, followed for more than 10 years in a French comprehensive cancer center.
The Cox shared frailty model with log-skew-normal frailties
Clustered survival data arise when groups of failure times share a common ingredient; typically, they refer to the same individual or individuals with a common factor. When the association between
Parametric Cure Model versus Proportional Hazards Model in Survival Analysis of Breast Cancer and Other Malignancies
The results reveal that the traditional methods fail to distinguish between curative and life-prolonging therapies, and the Boag lognormal cure model provides more accurate and more useful insight into the long-term benefit of cancer treatment than the traditional alternatives.
Frailty models for survival data
A frailty model is a random effects model for time variables, where the random effect (the frailty) has a multiplicative effect on the hazard. It can be used for univariate (independent) failure

Multivariate frailty models for two types of recurrent events with a dependent terminal event: Application to breast cancer data
A multivariate frailty model is proposed that jointly analyzes two types of recurrent events with a dependent terminal event and the terminal event (death) after a breast cancer.
Survival Curve for Cancer Patients Following Treatment
A simple function, in terms of two physically meaningful parameters, has been evolved, which fits survivorship data very well and can be used to compare succinctly the mortality of two groups, different in respect of treatment, type of cancer, or other characteristics.
Cure Model Survival Analysis After Hepatic Resection for Colorectal Liver Metastases
Using a cure model, the present results indicate that statistical cure of CLM is possible after hepatectomy; providing this information can help clinicians give more precise answer to patients’ questions.
Bayesian Inference for Multivariate Survival Data with a Cure Fraction
We develop Bayesian methods for right censored multivariate failure time data for populations with a cure fraction. We propose a new model, called the multivariate cure rate model, and provide a
