Abstract:
This work arises from a hepatitis C cohort study and focuses on estimating the effects of covariates on progression to cirrhosis. In hepatitis C cohort studies, patients may be recruited to the cohort with referral bias because clinically the patients with more rapid disease progression are preferentially referred to liver clinics. This referral bias can lead to significantly biased estimates of the effects of covariates on progression to cirrhosis.
