Modelling the AIDS incubation time: evaluation of three right censoring strategies



Modelling the AIDS incubation time: evaluation of three right censoring strategies



Aids 11(6): 834-835



The correspondents observe that certain strategies for right-censoring of patients according to AIDS status may result in under- or overestimates for AIDS incubation time. They suggest an alternative approach (evaluated in the Tricontinental Seroconverter Study) whereby persons not seen in the year preceding the date of analysis and persons with an AIDS diagnosis more than 1 year after their last visit are censored AIDS-free 1 year after their last visit.
