Testing for the presence of cured patients: a simulation study
An important but difficult problem in clinical trials is to determine the presence of cured patients when long-term survivors are observed. The likelihood ratio test has been studied for this purpose in the gamma mixture model. However, its asymptotic null distribution is not readily available due to a violation of boundary conditions in the standard asymptotic theory. In this paper, a simulation study is employed to examine a proposed asymptotic null distribution of the likelihood ratio test....[Show more]
