Summary of "Mediation analysis of time-to-event endpoints accounting for repeatedly measured mediators subject to time-varying confounding."

In this article, we will present statistical methods to assess to what extent the effect of a randomised treatment (versus control) on a time-to-event endpoint might be explained by the effect of treatment on a mediator of interest, a variable that is measured longitudinally at planned visits throughout the trial. In particular, we will show how to identify and infer the path-specific effect of treatment on the event time via the repeatedly measured mediator levels. The considered proposal addresses complications due to patients dying before the mediator is assessed, due to the mediator being repeatedly measured, and due to posttreatment confounding of the effect of the mediator by other mediators. We illustrate the method by an application to data from the LEADER cardiovascular outcomes trial.

An Application of Traditional and Emerging Methods for the Joint Analysis of Repeated Measurements with Time-to-Event Outcomes in Rheumatology.

The goal of this paper is to describe approaches for the joint analysis of repeatedly measured data with time-to-event endpoints, first separately and then in the framework of a single comprehensive m...

Role of muscle power output as a mediator between gait variability and gait velocity in hospitalized older adults.

Acute illness requiring hospitalization is a sentinel event leading to functional decline and frequently, long-term disability in older adults. Although functional decline has become a key outcome dur...

Joint regression analysis for survival data in the presence of two sets of semi-competing risks.

In many clinical trials, multiple time-to-event endpoints including the primary endpoint (e.g., time to death) and secondary endpoints (e.g., progression-related endpoints) are commonly used to determ...

Granger mediation analysis of multiple time series with an application to fMRI.

This paper presents Granger Mediation Analysis (GMA), a new framework for causal mediation analysis of multiple time series. This framework is motivated by a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMR...

Analysis of repeated measures data in nutrition research.

Amino acid nutrition studies often involve repeated measures data. An example is that the concentrations of plasma citrulline in steers are repeatedly measured from the same animals. The standard repe...

Definition for the Assessment of Time-to-event Endpoints in CANcer Trials (DATECAN-1)

In randomised phase III cancer clinical trials, the most objectively defined and only validated time-to-event endpoint is overall survival (OS). The appearance of new types of treatments a...

Variability of Definitions for Survival Endpoints and Surrogate Properties for OS: a Meta-analysis

The DATECAN-2 project aims at assessing the surrogate properties for OS of several time-to-event endpoints through meta-analyses of completed and published randomized controlled trials. Tw...

Survival Endpoints for Treatment Evaluation in Subjects Treated for Metastatic Breast Cancer: Contribution of Real-life Databases

Overall survival (OS) is considered the most reliable cancer endpoint and used by the Health Rregulatory authorities (HRA). OS presents multiple advantages in cancer randomized controlled ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A measure of the total greenhouse gas emissions produced by an individual, organization, event, or product. It is measured in units of equivalent kilograms of CARBON DIOXIDE generated in a given time frame.

A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.

A class of statistical procedures for estimating the survival function (function of time, starting with a population 100% well at a given time and providing the percentage of the population still well at later times). The survival analysis is then used for making inferences about the effects of treatments, prognostic factors, exposures, and other covariates on the function.

The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.

Exercises in which muscles are repeatedly and rapidly stretched, followed by shortening, concentric MUSCLE CONTRACTION (e.g. jumping and rebounding). They are designed to exert maximal force in minimal time by increasing STRETCH REFLEX.
