Some Flexible Cure Rate Models and Associated Inference
N. Balakrishnan
Department of Mathematics and Statistics, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada


In this talk, I will first introduce two classical cure rate models and then describe how more flexible models can be obtained. These models would allow for over- and under-dispersion as well, in comparison to the well-known Poisson cure rate model. I shall then detail some inferential aspects associated with this general cure rate model and illustrate it by fitting to a cutaneous melanoma data. Finally, I will mention some other variations that could be made to the model based on some biological considerations and associated inferential results.
