joint.Cox (2.8)

Penalized Likelihood Estimation and Dynamic Prediction under the Joint Frailty-Copula Models Between Tumour Progression and Death for Meta-Analysis.

http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/joint.Cox

Perform the Cox regression and dynamic prediction under the joint frailty-copula model between tumour progression and death for meta-analysis. The method is applicable for meta-analytic data combining several studies. The data should have information on both terminal event time (time-to-death) and non-terminal event time (time-to-tumour progression).
