Univariate Parametric Survival Analysis using GS-distributions
MetadataShow full item record
The GS-distribution is a family of distributions that provide an accurate representation of any unimodal univariate continuous distribution. In this contribution we explore the utility of this family as a general model in survival analysis. We show that the survival function based on the GS-distribution is able to provide a model for univariate survival data and that appropriate estimates can be obtained. We develop some hypotheses tests that can be used for checking the underlying survival model and for comparing the survival of different groups.

Distribution of functional polymorphic variants of inflammation-related genes RANTES and CCR5 in long-lived individuals Laplana Lafaja, Marina; Fibla Palazón, Joan (Elsevier, 2012)Although persistent inflammation has been related to unsuccessful aging, a pro-inflammatory status is the common phenotype in older people. To assess for a genetic component in the inflammatory status of the oldest we ...

Analysis of meiotic recombination in 22q11.2, a region that frequently undergoes deletions and duplications Torres-Juan, Laura; Rosell, Jordi; Sánchez de la Torre, Manuel; Fibla Palazón, Joan; Heine-Suñer, Damià (BioMed Central, 2007)Background: The 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is the most frequent genomic disorder with an estimated frequency of 1/4000 live births. The majority of patients (90%) have the same deletion of 3 Mb (Typically Deleted Region, ...
