Statistics Seminar: K.B. Kulasekera (University of Louisville) -- Personalized Plans with Multiple Treatments


Designing optimal treatment regimes based on individual patient characteristics 
has gained momentum over the last few years. Dynamic treatment regimes that are 
geared towards the ``best" outcome for a patient based on his/her genetic and 
genomic markers are of high importance. In this work we propose a method for 
treatment assignment based on individual covariate information for a patient. 
While most techniques found in the literature can only handle the assignment of 
two treatments, our method covers more than two treatments and it can be applied 
with a broad set of models. Furthermore, it has desirable large sample properties. 

An empirical study using simulations and a real data analysis show the 
applicability of the proposed procedure
