Random survival forests for competing risks with multivariate longitudinal endogenous covariates

  title={Random survival forests for competing risks with multivariate longitudinal endogenous covariates},
  author={Anthony Devaux and Catherine Helmer and Carole Dufouil and Robin Genuer and C{\'e}cile Proust-Lima},
: Predicting the individual risk of a clinical event using the complete patient history is still a major challenge for personalized medicine. Among the methods developed to compute individual dynamic predictions, the joint models have the assets of using all the available information while accounting for dropout. However, they are restricted to a very small number of longitudinal predictors. Our objective was to propose an innovative alternative solution to predict an event probability using a…

Random Survival Forests

This article introduces random survival forests, a random forests method for the analysis of right-censored survival data, and extends Breiman’s random forests (RF) method, showing it to be highly accurate and comparable to state-of-the-art methods.

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.

Development and validation of a dynamic prognostic tool for prostate cancer recurrence using repeated measures of posttreatment PSA: a joint modeling approach.

Using data from 3 large cohorts of patients treated after the diagnosis of prostate cancer, it is shown that the dynamic prognostic tool based on the joint model reduces the error of prediction and offers a powerful tool for individual prediction.

Joint Models for Longitudinal and Time to Event Data

Individual dynamic prediction of clinical endpoint from large dimensional longitudinal biomarker history: a landmark approach

The methodology, implemented in R, enables the prediction of an event using the entire longitudinal patient history, even when the number of repeated markers is large, and demonstrates in a simulation study the benefits of machine learning survival methods over standard survival models.

Penalized regression calibration: A method for the prediction of survival outcomes using complex longitudinal and high‐dimensional data

An application of PRC is illustrated by illustrating an application of the method to data from an observational study that involved patients affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy, where the goal is predict time to loss of ambulation using longitudinal blood biomarkers.

Dynamic survival prediction combining landmarking with a machine learning ensemble: Methodology and empirical comparison

Dynamic prediction models provide predicted survival probabilities that can be updated over time for an individual as new measurements become available. Two techniques for dynamic survival prediction

Functional survival forests for multivariate longitudinal outcomes: Dynamic prediction of Alzheimer’s disease progression

A modeling framework to incorporate multivariate longitudinal data in the model building process to enhance the predictive performance of RSF and is better at capturing the various trends in both the longitudinal outcomes and the survival model which may be difficult to model using only parametric approaches.

Functional Ensemble Survival Tree: Dynamic Prediction of Alzheimer’s Disease Progression Accommodating Multiple Time-Varying Covariates

The proposed framework incorporates multivariate functional principal component analysis to characterize the changing patterns of multiple time-varying neurocognitive biomarker trajectories and nest these features within an ensemble survival tree in predicting the progression of AD.

Dynamic prediction of Alzheimer's disease progression using features of multiple longitudinal outcomes and time‐to‐event data

A personalized dynamic prediction framework that can be updated as new observations collected to reflect the patient's latest prognosis, and thus intervention could be initiated in a timely manner is proposed.
