An R package containing a suite of descriptive and inferential methods designed to evaluate individual treatment selection markers and to compare candidate markers.
functions included are:
trtsel_measuresfor estimating performance measures for a pre-specified marker based treatment rule
trtselfor creating trtsel objects
plotfor plotting risk curves and more
evaluatefor evaluating marker performance
calibratefor assessing model calibration
compareto compare two trtsel objects.
An older stable version of the package is available from CRAN. However, this version does not allow for multivariate models or time-to-event outcomes and will be phased out soon.
An updated version of the package with extended capabilities is currently under development. To install this version directly from github, type:
if (!require("devtools")) install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("mdbrown/TreatmentSelection")
