aVirtualTwins

CRAN_Status_Badge

An adaptation of VirtualTwins method from Foster, J. C., Taylor, J. M.G. and Ruberg, S. J. (2011)

VirtualTwins is a method of subgroup identification from randomized clinical trial data.

In 2015, as an intern in a french pharmaceutical group, i worked on this method and develop a package based on Jared Foster and al method.

(Very) Quick Preview

# Load data

# Format data
vt.obj <- vt.data(dataset         = sepsis,
                  outcome.field   = "survival",

 Infos

Currently this package works for RCT with two treatments groups and binary outcome.

Most of the package use Reference Class programing (in R). Feel free to create your own classes.

Of course, subgroup identification in general with two treatment and severals group can be possible.
