Toenail data

Description

The toenail.saemix data are from a multicenter study comparing two oral treatments for toe-nail infection, including information for 294 patients measured at 7 weeks, comprising a total of 1908 measurements. The outcome binary variable "onycholysis" indicates the degree of separation of the nail plate from the nail-bed (none or mild versus moderate or severe). Patients were evaluated at baseline (week 0) and at weeks 4, 8, 12, 24, 36, and 48 thereafter.

Usage

toenail.saemix

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

id

subject index in file

time

time of measurement (in months)

y

degree of onycholysis (0 if none or mild, 1 if moderate or severe)

treatment

treatment indicator (1=Treatment A, 0= Treatment B)

visit

visit number (visit numbers 1-7 correspond to scheduled visits at 0, 4, 8, 12, 24, 36, and 48 weeks)

Details

The data in the toenail.saemix was copied from the Toenail dataset provided by the prLogistic package. Different models and analyses have been performed to describe this dataset in Molenberg and Verbeke (2000). Please refer to the PDF documentation (chapter 4, section 4.6) for more details on the analysis, including how to obtain diagnostic plots.
