Evaluating six-step parsimonious quadratic logistic regression for risk prediction
The goal of the study is to evaluate the six-step parsimonious quadratic logistic regression model for risk prediction (that I developed) using the NLST x-ray arm data as the training dataset, the PLCO lung cancer data as the independent validation dataset, and Yunnan Tin Miners Cohort Study data as the second independent validation dataset. Dr Ping Hu in BRG/DCP/NCI along with programmers from IMS created a NLST and PLCO data set for this type of evaluatino and has generously offered to share it with me if I get this approval.
Fit the risk prediction model to the NLST x-ray arm data and evaluate performance using PLCO lung cancer data and data from Yunnan Tin Miners Cohort Study.
