LogisticLogNormalMixture-classR Documentation

Standard logistic model with online mixture of two bivariate log normal priors


This model can be used when data is arising online from the informative component of the prior, at the same time with the data of the trial of main interest. Formally, this is achieved by assuming that the probability of a DLT at dose x is given by


p(x) = π p_{1}(x) + (1 - π) p_{2}(x)

where π is the probability for the model p(x) being the same as the model p_{1}(x) - this is the informative component of the prior. From this model data arises in parallel: at doses xshare, DLT information yshare is observed, in total nObsshare data points, see DataMixture. On the other hand, 1 - π is the probability of a separate model p_{2}(x). Both components have the same log normal prior distribution, which can be specified by the user, and which is inherited from the LogisticLogNormal class.



the prior weight for sharing the same model p_{1}(x)

the DataMixture class for use with this model


## decide on the dose grid:
doseGrid <- 1:80

## and MCMC options:
options <- McmcOptions()

## the classic model would be:
model <- LogisticLogNormal(mean = c(-0.85, 1),
                           cov = matrix(c(1, -0.5, -0.5, 1), nrow = 2),
                           refDose = 50)

nodata <- Data(doseGrid=doseGrid)

priorSamples <- mcmc(nodata, model, options)
plot(priorSamples, model, nodata)

## set up the mixture model and data share object:
modelShare <- LogisticLogNormalMixture(shareWeight=0.1,
                                       mean = c(-0.85, 1),
                                       cov = matrix(c(1, -0.5, -0.5, 1), nrow = 2),
                                       refDose = 50)

nodataShare <- DataMixture(doseGrid=doseGrid,
                             c(rep(10, 4),
                               rep(20, 4),
                               rep(40, 4)),
                             c(rep(0L, 4),
                               rep(0L, 4),
                               rep(0L, 4)))

## now compare with the resulting prior model:
priorSamplesShare <- mcmc(nodataShare, modelShare, options)
plot(priorSamplesShare, modelShare, nodataShare)
