Analysis of a potential trigger of an acute illness
Sometimes certain short-term risk exposures are postulated to act as a trigger for the onset of a specific acute illness. When the incidence of the illness is low it is desirable to investigate this possible association using only data on cases detected during a specific observation period. Here we propose an analysis for such a study based on a model expressed in terms of the probability that the exposure triggers the illness and a random delay from a triggered illness until its diagnosis....[Show more]
