Cross-Validated Bagged Prediction of Survival

Sandra E. Sinisi, Romain Neugebauer and Mark J. van der Laan

In this article, we show how to apply our previously proposed Deletion/Substitution/Addition algorithm in the context of right-censoring for the prediction of survival. Furthermore, we introduce how to incorporate bagging into the algorithm to obtain a cross-validated bagged estimator. The method is used for predicting the survival time of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma based on gene expression variables.
