- Estimating AIDS incidence and jack-knife variance from a continuous delay distribution and incomplete dataJ Cui
Department of Public Health, University of Melbourne, Carlton, Vic, Australia
Stat Med 18:527-37. 1999..Study results showed that precision of estimates is improved by using the continuous time model as compared with those estimates given by its discrete counterpart. This feature is useful in assessing current trends in AIDS incidence...
- Estimating HIV incidence using dates of both HIV and AIDS diagnosesJ Cui
Department of General Practice and Public Health, University of Melbourne, Carlton, VIC 3053, Australia
Stat Med 19:1165-77. 2000..Study results show that dramatic improvement in precision is gained for estimates of HIV incidence in recent years when both HIV and AIDS diagnosis dates are used on all individuals...
- Nonparametric estimation of a delay distribution based on left-censored and right-truncated dataJ Cui
Department of Public Health, University of Melbourne, Carlton, VIC 3053, Australia
Biometrics 55:345-9. 1999..It is shown that inclusion of the left-censored data, as opposed to analyzing only the uncensored data, improves the precision of the estimate...
- Segregation analyses of 1,476 population-based Australian families affected by prostate cancerJ Cui
Centre for Genetic Epidemiology, The University of Melbourne, Carlton, Victoria 3053, Australia
Am J Hum Genet 68:1207-18. 2001..Within discussed limitations, these analyses confirm the genetic heterogeneity, of prostate cancer susceptibility, that is becoming evident from linkage analyses, and they may aid future efforts in gene discovery...
- Distribution of family history of a disease as a function of mode of inheritance, genetic relative hazard, allele frequency and disease status of the proband, with application to female breast cancerJ Cui
Centre for Genetic Epidemiology, The University of Melbourne, Carlton, Victoria, Australia
J Epidemiol Biostat 6:331-42. 2001..Under recessive inheritance with allele frequency 0.35 and relative hazard 3 (as may be the case for a common polymorphism in the CYP17 gene), the corresponding ratios are 1.1, 1.3 and 1.5, respectively...
