EXAMINING TESTS FOR COMPARING SURVIVAL CURVES WITH RIGHT CENSORED DATA

Background and objective: In survival analysis, estimating the survival probability of a population is important, but on the other hand, investigators want to compare the survival experiences of different groups. In such cases, the differences can be illustrated by drawing survival curves, but this will only give a rough idea. Since the data obtained from survival studies contains frequently censored observations some specially designed tests are required in order to compare groups

SURVIVAL REGRESSION MODELS FOR SINGLE EVENTS AND COMPETING RISKS BASED ON PSEUDOOBSERVATIONS

Survival data is a special type of data that measures the time to an event of interest. The most important feature of survival data is the presence of censored observations. An observation is said to be right-censored if the time of the observation is, for some reason, shorter than the time to the event. If no censoring occurs in the data, standard statistical models can be used to analyse the data. Pseudo-observations can replace censored observations and thereby allow standard statistical

Analysing the impact of dependency on conditional survival functions using copulas

Nowadays, insurance contract reserves for coupled lives are considered jointly, which has a significant influence on the process of determining actuarial reserves. In this paper, conditional survival distributions of life insurance reserves are computed using copulas. Subsequently, the results are compared with an independence case. These calculations are based on selected Archimedean copulas and apply when the ‘death of one individual’ condition exists. The estimation outcome

Prenatal ethanol intoxication and maternal intubation stress alter cell survival and apoptosis in the postnatal development of rat hippocampus

The ethanol-associated neuronal damage which is initiated by activation of the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway (Cartwright et al., 1998; Ikonomidou et al., 2000; Light et al., 2002; Ramachandran et al., 2003; Dikranian et al., 2005) may be related to several molecular mechanisms including induction of oxidative stress, activation of caspase-3, functional loss of neurotrophic factors and inhibition of survival

Stimulation of Antibody Following 51Chromium Survival Studies

The survival of red blood cells (RBCs) radiolabeled with 51chromium (51Cr) is a reliable method for predicting transfusion compatibility. Approximately 1.0 ml of 51Cr tagged RBCs is infused into the patient and samples are drawn at predetermined intervals post infusion to determine RBC survival. Red cells used for the study are usually incompatible with the patient's antibody. This antigenic rechallenge may stimulate further antibody production, which could contribute to accelerated

COMPARISON OF DIABETIC NEPHROPATHY ONSET TIME OF TWO GROUPS WITH LEFT TRUNCATED AND RIGHT CENSORED DATA

truncated and right censored data (LTRC), the nonparametric approach, suggested by Kaplan and Meier, is used to compare the survival function of two groups over different time periods. Another method based on median survival time of the pooled group is applied to compare the survival function of two groups with LTRC data. The major advantage of developing methods for comparing the nephropathy onset times of DM patients is that the expected DN onset time of new DM patients can be predicted depending on

Survival and Infectivity of Entomopathogenic Nematodes Formulated in Sodium Alginate Beads

An alternative control method to the use of chemical insecticides against soil dwelling insect pests is the application of entomopathogenic nematodes formulated in alginate beads for enhanced shelf life. The aim was to compare the benefit on nematode survival and infectivity of: (i) pre-conditioning of juveniles, and (ii) coating of alginate beads. The nematodes Steinernema glaseri, Steinernema carpocapsae, and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora were reproduced in last instar larvae of the wax moth

Alternative approach to moments of order statistics from one-parameter Weibull distribution

The Weibull distribution is used to describe various observed failures of phenomena and widely used in survival analysis and reliability theory. Sometimes it is very difficult to compute moments of such distributions due to various reasons for e.g. analytical issues, multi parameter cases etc. This study presents the computation of the moments and the expected value of the product of order statistics in the sample from the one-parameter Weibull distribution.

These studies mostly aimed to assess the compatibility of these compounds with EPNs based on the survival and infectivity of IJs. There, however, is a need to expand on the diversity of nematicides that are tested for impact on EPN, and their effects on the penetration efficacy and reproductive capacity; chemotaxis and longer-term

Clinical significance of an anti-Dib assessed by flow cytometry

Although antibodies to the Dib antigen are generally considered to be of potential clinical significance, we know of no reports assessing the clinical significance of anti-Dib (in vivo or in vitro). We report on an 88-year-old Japanese male gastrectomy patient who had alloanti-Dib. After transfusion of two Di(b–) units, three Di(b+) units had to be transfused, and there were no clinical signs of acute hemolysis.

Reduced red blood cell destruction by antibody fragments

Antibodies to blood group antigens can cause immune RBC destruction directly (extravascular destruction) or indirectly through subsequent complement activation (intravascular hemolysis). The Fc portion of the IgG antibody is responsible for the effector functions of immune RBC destruction. We hypothesized that sensitization of RBCs with blood group antigen–specific IgG antibodies lacking their Fc portion would escape from the recipient’s immune system, allowing for a longer survival

The nematode treatments reduced pupal survival at a similar level, with no significant differences detected among them. Pupal survival among the treatments ranged from 42.85% (for S. carpocapsae) to 73.8% (for H. bacteriophora) (Fig. 1).

Using a Poisson point process in two dimensions, we derive an analytical expression that determines the required transmission range to achieve a specified connectivity probability for a given node density, and then the minimum connected average node degree is

Production of exopolysaccharides is an important feature of probiotic lactobacilli. It increases the chance of their survival in the gastrointestinal tract and promotes adhesion to the epithelium; therefore, exopolysaccharides are important for the process of colonization.
