Summarizing data on survival, relapse, and chronic graft-versus-host disease after bone marrow transplantation: motivation for and description of new methods.

Abstract

Kaplan-Meier curves are frequently used to summarize survival, relapse, and chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) data in the bone marrow transplant setting.
