Revision date


Many of the stochastic carcinogenesis models developed during the last two decades or so are sequential, unidirectional compartmental models. Such cancer models belong to the eight types of models given in Zheng (1997, Risk Analysis 17:617-624). The package CarcinoMod offers 32 functions to compute the survival and hazard rate functions for all these models, allowing time-dependent model parameters. All these 32 functions adopt the ordinary differential equation based computational approach as described in Zheng (1997). In addition, the package also provides the user with five additional functions that use exact analytic formulae to compute the survival and hazard rate functions for certain two-stage models.
