SEMICURE
An S-PLUS Package for Semiparametric Analysis of Survival Data with a Possible Cured Fraction
This S-PLUS package implements the algorithm described in the article "Peng, Y. (2003), Fitting semiparametric cure models, Computational Statistics and Data Analysis 41:481--490". This package was implemented with support from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and Memorial University of Newfoundland. It is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY. If you use it for work that is published in any form, please acknowledge the author.
