This function performs estimations of ROC curves (without censoring) according to quantitative marker and a binary outcome.
ROC(status, marker, cut.values)
A numeric vector with the indicators of the disease (e.g. 0=disease-free, 1=disease).
A numeric vector with the values of the quantitative marker.
The threshold values of the marker for which the coordinates of the ROC are computed.
This function computes a traditional ROC curve (without right-censoring). The false positive and negative rates are obtained by estimating the corresponding proportion
The function returns a list.
cut.values is the vector of the input threshold values.
FP represent the corresponding false and true positive rates.
AUC is the area under the curve.
