  • Extension of the asymptotic relative efficiency method to select the primary endpoint in a randomized clinical trial 

    Plana-Ripoll, Oleguer; Gómez Melis, Guadalupe (2014-10-13)
    External research report
    Open Access
    We extend the ARE method proposed in Gómez and Lagakos (2013) devised to decide which primary endpoint to choose when comparing two treatments in a randomized clinical trial. The ARE method is based on the Asymptotic ...
  • Review of multivariate survival data 

    Gómez Melis, Guadalupe; Calle Rosingana, M. Luz; Serrat Piè, Carles; Espinal Berenguer, Anna (2004-09)
    External research report
    Open Access
    This paper reviews some of the main contributions in the area of multivariate survival data and proposes some possible extensions. In particular, we have concentrated our search and study on those papers that are relevant ...
  • Recommendations to choose the primary endpoint in cardiovascular clinical trials 

    Gómez Melis, Guadalupe; Gómez Mateu, Moisés; Dafni, Urania (2013)
    External research report
    Open Access
    Background – A composite endpoint is often used as the primary endpoint to assess the efficacy of a new treatment in randomized clinical trials (RCT). In cardiovascular trials, the often rare event of the relevant primary ...
  • Statistics for spatial functional data 

    Delicado Useros, Pedro Francisco; Giraldo, Ramón; Comas, Carles; Mateu, Jorge (2008-12)
    External research report
    Open Access
    Functional Data Analysis is a relatively new branch in Statistics. Experiments where a complete function is observed for each individual give rise to functional data. In this work we focus on the case of functional data ...
  • The role of survival functions in competing risks 

    Porta Bleda, Núria; Gómez Melis, Guadalupe; Calle Rosingana, M. Luz (2008-05-28)
    External research report
    Open Access
    Competing risks data usually arises in studies in which the failure of an individual may be classified into one of k (k > 1) mutually exclusive causes of failure. When competing risks are present, there are two main ...
  • Competing risks methods 

    Porta Bleda, Núria; Gómez Melis, Guadalupe; Calle Rosingana, M. Luz; Malats i Riera, Núria (2007-12-10)
    External research report
    Open Access
    Competing risks data usually arises in studies in which the failure of an individual may be classified into one of k (k > 1) mutually exclusive causes of failure. When competing risks are present, classical survival analysis ...
