This book presents solutions to missing data problems through explicit or noniterative sampling calculation of Bayesian posteriors, based on the inverse Bayes formulae. The authors focus on exact numerical solutions, a conditional sampling approach via data augmentation, and a noniterative sampling approach via EM-type algorithms. They describe Monte Carlo simulation, numerical techniques, and optimization methods. The book illustrates the methods with biostatistical models and real-world applications, including mixed effects and hierarchical models, nonresponse and contingency tables, and the constrained parameter problem reformulated as a missing data problem.

Adaptive and Flexible Clinical Trials Richard Chin Institute for One World Health, San Francisco, California, USA

Unlike traditional fixed clinical trials that cannot be altered once the study begins, adaptive designs allow the study design to be modified in response to the data being generated in the course of the trial. The newly developed web-based real-time data entry and recent advances in statistical methods have made it possible to perform real-time, adaptive clinical trials. Suitable for readers in academia, industry, and government involved in drug development, this up-to-date, easy-to-read book covers the essential aspects of adaptive clinical trials. It discusses the design, conduct, and execution of these trials. Catalog no. K11738, August 2011, c. 196 pp. ISBN: 978-1-4398-3832-7, $89.95 / £57.99

Flexible Parametric Survival Analysis Using Stata Beyond the Cox Model Patrick Royston University College London and MRC Clinical Trials Unit, UK

Paul C. Lambert University of Leicester, UK

Through real-world case studies, this book shows how to use Stata to estimate a class of flexible parametric survival models. It discusses the modeling of time-dependent and continuous covariates and looks at how relative survival can be used to measure mortality associated with a particular disease when the cause of death has not been recorded. The book describes simple quantification of differences between any two covariate patterns through calculation of time-dependent hazard ratios, hazard differences, and survival differences.

Frailty Models in Survival Analysis

Design and Analysis of Clinical Trials with Time-to-Event Endpoints Edited by

Karl E. Peace

Andreas Wienke Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany

Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health, Georgia Southern University, Statesboro, USA

Accessible to nonspecialists, this book explains the basic ideas in frailty modeling and statistical techniques, with a focus on real data application and interpretation of the results. It extensively explores how univariate frailty models can represent unobserved heterogeneity. It also emphasizes correlated frailty models as extensions of univariate and shared frailty models. The author analyzes similarities and differences between frailty and copula models, discusses problems related to frailty models, and describes parametric and semiparametric models using both frequentist and Bayesian approaches. He also shows how to apply the models to real data using R, SAS, and Stata.

This resource provides a thorough presentation of the design, monitoring, analysis, and interpretation of clinical trials in which time-toevent is of critical interest. It discusses the design and monitoring of Phase II and III clinical trials with time-to-event endpoints. The book presents parametric, semiparametric, categorical, and Bayesian inferential and descriptive methods for analyzing time-to-event endpoints. It also covers numerous clinical trial applications, including analgesic, antibiotic, antiviral, cancer and cardiovascular prevention, optimal assignment of treatments, adverse events, and carcinogenicity.

Modeling Survival Data Using Frailty Models

Statistical Thinking in Epidemiology

David D. Hanagal

University of Leeds, Leeds, UK

University of Pune, India

Frailty models have been introduced into the statistical literature to account for the existence of unmeasured attributes, such as genotypes that introduce heterogeneity into a study population. Including inference results, applications, and references, this book presents the basic concepts of frailty models in survival analysis. The author also addresses advanced topics in frailty models, including estimation procedures, tests for frailty, and additive frailty models. The text covers frailty models based on Levy processes as well as correlated frailty models.

This book provides new insights into the many existing problems in statistical modeling and offers several alternative strategies to approach these problems. Emphasizing the importance of statistical thinking behind all analyses, the authors use specific examples in epidemiology to illustrate different model specifications that can imply different sets of causal relationships between variables. Each model is interpreted with regard to the context of implicit or explicit causal relationships. The authors also use vector geometry where applicable to provide an intuitive understanding of important statistical concepts.

Taha Kass-Hout Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Bayesian Disease Mapping Hierarchical Modeling in Spatial Epidemiology Andrew Lawson

Xiaohui Zhang International Public Health Institute, Tucson, Arizona, USA

Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, USA

This volume discusses how biosurveillance systems support epidemiologists and public health officials in the early identification, situational awareness, and response management of natural and man-made health-related events. Initial chapters build a foundation while subsequent chapters present applied case studies from around the world, including China, the United States, Denmark, and the Asia-Pacific region. Through these case studies, the expert contributors offer first-hand insight on lessons learned and unresolved issues. The book also addresses policy and organizational issues related to the construction of biosurveillance systems.

“This book provides a technical grounding in spatial models while maintaining a strong grasp on applied epidemiological problems. … A welcome effort is made to clarify concepts which might, in other texts, have been skimmed over in a rush to fit models. … the concepts are illustrated with disease mapping examples, including R and WinBUGS code. … The book has relatively few errors … I recommend the book. It taught me new ideas and clarified existing ones. …”
