Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents an integrated methodology for sequential experimentation in clinical trials. The methodology allows sequential learning during the course of a trial to improve the efficiency of the trial design, which oftenlacks adequate informati on at the planning stage. Adaptation via sequential learning of unknown parameters is a central idea not only in adaptive designs of confirmatory clinical trials but also in the theory of optimal nonlinearexperimental design, which the book covers as intr oductory material. Other introductory topics for which the book provides preparatory background include sequential testing theory, dynamic programming and stochastic optimization,survival analysis and resampling methods. In this way, the book gives a self -contained and thorough treatment of group sequential and adaptive designs, time-sequential trials with failure-time endpoints, and statistical inference atthe conclusion of these trials. The book can be used for graduate courses in sequential analysis, c linical trials, and biostatistics, and also for short courses on clinical trials at professional meetings. Each chapter ends withsupplements for the reader to explore related concepts and methods, and problems which can be used for exercises in graduate c ourses. Jay Bartroff is Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Southern California where heis a member of the Laboratory of Applied Pharmacokinetics at the USC Keck School of Medicine. He is a leading expert on group sequential and multis tage adaptive statistical procedures and their applications to clinical trial designs,and he is a sought-after consultant in academia and industry.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Linear mixed-effects models (LMMs) are an important class of statistical models that can be used to analyze correlated data. Such data are encountered in a variety of fields including biostatistics, public health, psychometrics,educational measuremen t, and sociology. This book aims to support a wide range of uses for the models by applied researchers in those and other fields by providing state-of-the-art descriptions of the implementation of LMMs in R. Tohelp readers to get familiar with the feature s of the models and the details of carrying them out in R, the book includes a review of the most important theoretical concepts of the models. The presentation connects theory, software andapplications. It is built up incrementally, starting with a summa ry of the concepts underlying simpler classes of linear models like the classical regression model, and carrying them forward to LMMs. A similar step-by-step approach isused to describe the R tools for LMMs. All the classes of linear models presented in t he book are illustrated using real-life data. The book also introduces several novel R tools for LMMs, including new class of variance-covariancestructure for random-effects, methods for influence diagnostics and for power calculations. They are included into an R package that should assist the readers in applying these and other methods presented in this text. Andrzej Gaeckiis a Research Professor in the Division of Geriatric Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, and Institute of Gerontology at the University of Michigan Medical School, and is Research Scientist in the Department of Biostatistics atthe University of Michigan School of Public Health.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The development of powerful computing environment and the geographical information system (GIS) in recent decades has thrust the analysis of geo-referenced disease incidence data into the mainstream of spatial epidemiology. Thisbook offers a modern p erspective on statistical methods for detecting disease clustering, an indispensable procedure to find a statistical evidence on aetiology of the disease under study. With increasing public health concerns aboutenvironmental risks, the need for sophistica ted methods for analyzing spatial health events is immediate. Furthermore, the research area of statistical methods for disease clustering now attracts a wide audience due to the perceivedneed to implement wide-ranging monitoring systems to detect possibl e health-related events such as the occurrence of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), pandemic influenza and bioterrorism As an invaluable resource for a widerange of audience including public health researchers, epidemiologists and biostatistia ns, this book features: A concise introduction to basic concepts of disease clustering/clusters A historical overview of methods for diseaseclustering A detailed treatment of selected methods useful for practical investigation of disease clustering Analys is and illustration of methods for a variety of real data sets Toshiro Tango, Ph.D., is the Director of Department ofTechnology Assessment and Biostatistics of National Institute of Public Health, Japan.

Note:Hardly a day goes by without news headlines concerning infectious disease threats. Currently the spectre of a pandemic of influenza A|H1N1 is raising its head, and heated debates are taking place about the pros and cons ofvaccinating young girls agai nst human papilloma virus. For an evidence-based and responsible communication of infectious disease topics to avoid misunderstandings and overreaction of the public, we need solid scientific knowledge andan understanding of all aspects of infectious dise ases and their control. The aim of our book is to present the reader with the general picture and the main ideas of the subject. The book introduces the reader to methodological aspectsof epidemiology that are specific for infectious diseases and provides insight into the epidemiology of some classes of infectious diseases characterized by their main modes of transmission. This choice of topics bridges the gapbetween scientific research on the clinical, biological, mathematical, social and economic aspect s of infectious diseases and their applications in public health. The book will help the reader to understand the impact of infectiousdiseases on modern society and the instruments that policy makers have at their disposal to deal with these challenges. I t is written for students of the health sciences, both of curative medicine and public health, and for expertsthat are active in these and related domains, and it may be of interest for the educated layman since the technical level is kept relatively low. The authors are internationally renowned experts in the field of infectious diseaseepidemiology. The editors come from different scientific backgrounds but have been devoted to research in infectious disease epidemiology for many years.

Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a thorough introduction to the most important topics in data mining and machine learning. It begins with a detailed review of classical function estimation and proceeds with chapters on nonlinear regression,classification, and ensemble m ethods. The final chapters focus on clustering, dimension reduction, variable selection, and multiple comparisons. All these topics have undergone extraordinarily rapid development in recent years and thistreatment offers a modern perspective emphasizing the most recent contributions. The presentation of foundational results is detailed and includes many accessible proofs not readily available outside original sources. While theorientation is conceptual and theoretical, the main points are regularly reinf orced by computational comparisons. Intended primarily as a graduate level textbook for statistics, computer science, and electrical engineering students,this book assumes only a strong foundation in undergraduate statistics and mathematics, and facility with using R packages. The text has a wide variety of problems, many of an exploratory nature. There are numerous computed examples,complete with code, so that further computations can be carried out readily. The book also serves as a handbook for researc hers who want a conceptual overview of the central topics in data mining and machine learning. Bertrand Clarkeis a Professor of Statistics in the Department of Medicine, Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, and the Center for Computational Scienc es at the University of Miami. He has been on the Editorial Board of the Journal of theAmerican Statistical Association, the Journal of Statistical Planning and Inference, and Statistical Papers. He is co-winner, with Andrew Barron, of the 1990 Browder J. Thompson Prize from the Institute of Electrical and ElectronicEngineers.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text provides the first-ever compilation of bias analysis methods for use with epidemiologic data. It guides the reader through the planning stages of bias analysis, including the design of validation studies and thecollection of validity data f rom other sources. Three chapters present methods for corrections to address selection bias, uncontrolled confounding, and classification errors. Subsequent chapters extend these methods to multidimensionalbias analysis, probabilistic bias analysis, and m ultiple bias analysis. The text concludes with a chapter on presentation and interpretation of bias analysis results. Although techniques for bias analysis have been available fordecades, these methods are considered difficult to implement. This text not only gathers the methods into one cohesive and organized presentation, it also explains the methods in a consistent fashion and provides customizablespreadsheets to implement the solutions. By downloading the spreadsheets (available at links provided in t he text), readers can follow the examples in the text and then modify the spreadsheet to complete their own bias analyses.Readers without experience using quantitative bias analysis will be able to design, implement, and understand bias analyses that addr ess the major threats to the validity of epidemiologic research. More experienced analysts will valuethe compilation of bias analysis methods and links to software tools that facilitate their projects. Timothy L. Lash is an Associate Professor of Epidemio logy and Matthew P. Fox is an Assistant Professor in the Center for InternationalHealth and Development, both at the Boston University School of Public Health. Aliza K. Fink is a Project Manager at Macro International in Bethesda, Maryland. Together they have organized and presented many day-long workshops on themethods of quantitative bias analysis.

Title:The Frailty Model [electronic resource]
Author(s): Luc Duchateau
Paul Janssen
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Clustered survival data are encountered in many scientific disciplines including human and veterinary medicine, biology, epidemiology, public health and demography. Frailty models provide a powerful tool to analyse clusteredsurvival data. In contrast to the large number of research publications on frailty models, relatively few statistical software packages contain frailty models. It is demanding for statistical practitioners and graduate students tograsp a good knowledge on frailty models from the e xisting literature. This book provides an in-depth discussion and explanation of the basics of frailty model methodology for such readers. The discussion includes parametric andsemiparametric frailty models and accelerated failure time models. Common tech niques to fit frailty models include the EM-algorithm, penalised likelihood techniques, Laplacian integration and Bayesian techniques. More advanced frailtymodels for hierarchical data are also included. Real-life examples are used to demonstrate how part icular frailty models can be fitted and how the results should be interpreted. The programs to fit all the worked-out examples in thebook are available from the Springer website with most of the programs developed in the freeware packages R and Winbugs. T he book starts with a brief overview of some basic concepts in classical survival analysis, collecting what isneeded for the reading on the more complex frailty models. Luc Duchateau is Associate Professor of Statistics at the Faculty of Veterinary Medici ne of the Ghent University, Belgium. He is board member of the Quetelet Society (BelgianRegion of the International Biometric Society) and of the International Biometric Society Channel Network. He has collaborated extensively with physicians in oncology and allergy, public health workers and veterinarians, and is anauthor of numerous papers in statistical, medical and veterinarian journals.

Note:This book is directly derived from a NATO-sponsored international meeting on problems of high altitude medicine and biology, which was held on the shores of lake of Issyk-Kul, in Kyrghyzstan, in June 5-6, 2006. It was a surprisefor several European a nd North and South-American scientists to discover the still on-going momentum high level altitude physiology research, which was extremely active but insufficiently acknowledged in this remote Central Asiancountry at the time of the USSR. Accordingly, th e setting was perfect for numerous positive scientific interactions, exchanges of ideas, and structuring of new international collaborations. Overall, the meeting was an ideal mix of cellbiology, integrative physiology and medical applications. Hypoxia is and remains a major public health issue in many populated mountainous areas all over the world. We are sure that this book will be become a long-lasting essentialreference

Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The objective of this book is to make its readers better informed and more critical consumers of clinical research to help them recognize the strengths and the weaknesses of scientific publications. In doing so, the reader willbe able to distinguish patient-important and methodologically sound studies from those having limitations in design, conduct and interpretation. There are no prerequisites for reading this book. The text is basic and has no statisticalformulas. Key take-home messages are listed at the end of each chapter. The large number of cartoons has two purposes: First, to make the text easier to read and generate a few laughs and, second, to underscore specific points,sometimes in a provocative way. Bengt D. Furberg, MD, PhD is board-cert ified in internal medicine. After spending a decade as medical director in the pharmaceutical industry, he now serves as medical consultant, evaluating the safetyand efficacy of pharmaceutical products and medical devices and promoting evidence-based medi cine. His brother, Curt D. Furberg, MD, PhD, is Professor in the Division of Public Health Sciences, Wake Forest University School ofMedicine, Winston-Salem, NC, USA. After arriving in the United States from Sweden, he worked at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health for 12 years. He is co-author of Fundamentals ofClinical Trials with Lawrence M. Friedman and David L. DeMets. His areas of interest are clinical trials, evidence-based medicine and drug safety. The authors have acquired much of their knowledge about clinical studies through thetrial and error method. Thus, they have personal experience with many of the problems they describe

Jerald F Lawless
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Recurrent event data arise in diverse fields such as medicine, public health, insurance, social science, economics, manufacturing and reliability. The purpose of this book is to present models and statistical methods for theanalysis of recurrent even t data. No single comprehensive treatment of these areas currently exists. The authors provide broad but detailed coverage of the major approaches to analysis, while also emphasizing the modeling assumptionsthat they are based on. Thus, they consider impo rtant models such as Poisson and renewal processes, with extensions to incorporate covariates or random effects. More general intensity-based models are also considered, as well assimpler models that focus on rate or mean functions. Parametric, nonparamet ric and semiparametric methodologies are all covered, with clear descriptions of procedures for estimation, testing and model checking. Important practicaltopics such as observation schemes and selection of individuals for study, the planning of randomize d experiments, events of several types, and the prediction of future events are considered. Methods of modeling and analysis areillustrated through many examples taken from health research and industry. The objectives and interpretations of different anal yses are discussed in detail, and issues of robustness are addressed. Statistical analysis of the examplesis carried out with S-PLUS software and code is given for some examples. This book is directed at graduate students, researchers, and applied statist icians working in industry, government or academia. Some familiarity with survivalanalysis is beneficial since survival software is used to carry out many of the analyses considered. This book can be used as a textbook for a graduate course on the analysi s of recurrent events or as a reference for a more generalcourse on event history analysis. Problems are given at the end of chapters to reinforce the material presented and to provide additional backgr

Date:2006
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Statistical Monitoring of Clinical Trials: Fundamentals for Investigators introduces the investigator and statistician to monitoring procedures in clinical research. Clearly presenting the necessary background with limited use ofmathematics, this boo k increases the knowledge, experience, and intuition of investigations in the use of these important procedures now required by the many clinical research efforts. The author provides motivated clinicalinvestigators the background, correct use, and interp retation of these monitoring procedures at an elementary statistical level. He defines terms commonly used such as group sequential procedures and stochastic curtailment innon-mathematical language and discusses the commonly used procedures of Pocock, OBr ienFleming, and LanDeMets. He discusses the notions of conditional power, monitoring for safety and futility, and monitoring multiple endpointsin the study. The use of monitoring clinical trials is introduced in the context of the evolution of clinical re search and one chapter is devoted to the more recent Bayesian procedures. Dr. Lemuel A. Moy, M.D., Ph.D. is a physicianand a biostatistician at the University of Texas School of Public Health. He is a diplomat of the National Board of Medical Examiners an d is currently Professor of Biostatistics at the University of Texas School of Public Health inHouston where he holds a full time faculty position. Dr. Moy has carried out cardiovascular research for twenty years and continues to be involved in the design , execution and analysis of clinical trials, both reporting to andserving on many Data Monitoring Committees. He has served in several clinical trials sponsored by both the U.S. government and private industry. In addition, Dr. Moy has served as statistic ian/epidemiologist for six years on both theCardiovascular and Renal Drug Advisory Committee to the Food and Drug Administration and the Pharmacy Sciences Advisory Committee to the FDA.

Title:Modeling Longitudinal Data [electronic resource]
Author(s): Robert E Weiss
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Longitudinal data are ubiquitous across Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education, yet many longitudinal data sets remain improperly analyzed. This book teaches the artand statistical scie nce of modern longitudinal data analysis. The author emphasizes specifying, understanding, and interpreting longitudinal data models. He inspects the longitudinal data graphically, analyzes the time trend andcovariates, models the covariance matrix, and t hen draws conclusions. Covariance models covered include random effects, autoregressive, autoregressive moving average, antedependence, factor analytic, and completely unstructured modelsamong others. Longer expositions explore: an introduction to and cri tique of simple non-longitudinal analyses of longitudinal data, missing data concepts, diagnostics, and simultaneous modeling of two longitudinal variables.Applications and issues for random effects models cover estimation, shrinkage, clustered data, mode ls for binary and count data and residuals and residual plots. Shorter sections include a general discussion of how computationalalgorithms work, handling transformed data, and basic design issues. This book requires a solid regression course as backgroun d and is particularly intended for the final year of a Biostatistics or Statistics Masters degree curriculum.The mathematical prerequisite is generally low, mainly assuming familiarity with regression analysis in matrix form. Doctoral students in Biostati stics or Statistics, applied researchers and quantitative doctoral students indisciplines such as Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education will find this book invaluable. The book has many fig ures and tables illustrating longitudinal data andnumerous homework problems. The associated web site contains many longitudinal data sets, examples of computer code, and labs to re-enforce the material
