Semiparametric additive marginal regression models for multiple type recurrent events

Xiaolin Chen, Qihua Wang, Jianwen Cai, Viswanathan Shankar
2012 Lifetime Data Analysis  
In many studies, there are more than one type of events of interest. Cai and Schaubel (2004) advocated a proportional marginal rate model for multiple type recurrent event data.  ...  In this paper, we propose a general additive marginal rate regression model. Estimating equations approach is used to obtain the estimators of regression coefficients and baseline rate function.  ...  John and the Department of Nephrology, Christian Medical College, Vellore India for providing renal transplant data used in this investigation.  ...

Smoothing Spline ANOVA Frailty Model for Recurrent Event Data

Pang Du, Yihua Jiang, Yuedong Wang
2011 Biometrics  
Gap time hazard estimation is of particular interest in recurrent event data. This article proposes a fully nonparametric approach for estimating the gap time hazard.  ...  Smoothing spline analysis of variance (ANOVA) decompositions are used to model the log gap time hazard as a joint function of gap time and covariates, and general frailty is introduced to account for between-subject  ...  Acknowledgements The authors thank the editor, the associate editor, and two referees for their insightful comments that have helped improve the article.  ...
