Survival of the fittest - but what does fitness mean?


How to quantify the superiority of one medical treatment over the other(s)? Direct comparisons could result in a rock-paper-scissors situation: treatment A beats treatment B, B beats C but C beats A. The popular Cox model resolves this by implementing a linear model on the hazard level. However, it is difficult to interpret the raw outcomes  of a Cox-analysis. As an alternative, we will consider relative effect measures which offer a meaningful quantification of treatment efficacy.

In the beginning, an introduction to classical survival analysis will be offered.

Parts of the talk involve a joint work with Markus Pauly (TU Dortmund).
