  2. Joint Models for Longitudinal and Time-to-Event Data

    With Applications in R

    By Dimitris Rizopoulos

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Biostatistics Series

    In longitudinal studies it is often of interest to investigate how a marker that is repeatedly measured in time is associated with a time to an event of interest, e.g., prostate cancer studies where longitudinal PSA level measurements are collected in conjunction with the time-to-recurrence. Joint...
