Cure models, Advanced Statistics

Models for the analysis of the survival times, or the time to event, data in which it is expected that a fraction of the subjects will not experience the event of interest. In a clinical setting, this often corresponds to the assumption that a fraction of patients treated for a disease will be cured whereas the rest will experience a recurrence. Commonly such models involve the fitting of finite mixture distributions.
