Kudos to Jeroen, who solved this for me, needed the NOINTER option on $EST,=

then you can use SAEM, which gave a reasonable answer, unlike FOCE.

Hi Mark,

Is it indeed a logistical model or is it an ordered categorical? I assume y=

ou refer to the latter. Not sure how you get your second category otherwise=

.

Anyway, to me it reads like you are trying to have the mixture model descri=

be exactly what the omega is trying to describe. Perhaps you could drop the=

omega all together? (or fix to a small value)

I also like Bob's suggestion, I would go for it ($NPAR!).

Hope this helps,

Jeroen

Hi Mark,

The pattern you see in the posthocs could possibly be a shrinkage phenomeno=

n. I.e. patients with AE most of the time will have the same ETA, while pat=

ients with no AE will have the same ETA and there will be a third group in =

between. If shrinkage is causing this, you should not expect any improveme=

nt with a mixture model. Before you reject your original model I would ther=

efore also evaluate it by simulation and re-estimation. I think it is quite=

possible that you will retreive a similar pattern in the posthocs even whe=

n you simulate based on a normal distribution.

Has anyone every tried to use a mixture model with logistic regression? I h=

ave data on a AE in several hundred patients, measured multiple times (10-2=

0 times per patient). Examining the data it is clear that, independent of =

drug concentration, there is very wide distribution of this AE, 68% of the =

patients never have the AE, 25% have it about 20% of the time and the rest =

have it pretty much continuously, regardless of drug concentration. (in or=

dinary logistic regression, just glm in R, there is also a nice concentrati=

on effect on the AE in addition). Running the usual logistic model, not s=

urprisingly, I get a really big ETA on the intercept, with 68% of the peopl=

e having ETA small negative, 25% ETA ~ 1 and 7% ETA ~ 10. No covariates see=

m particularly predictive of the post hoc ETA. I thought I could use a mix=

ture model, with 3 modes, but it refused to do that, giving me essentially =

0% in the 2nd and 3rd distribution, still with the really large OMEGA for t=

he intercept. Even when I FIX the OMEGA to a reasonable number, I still ge=

t essentially no one in the 2nd and 3rd distribution. I tried fixing the f=

raction in the 2nd and 3rd distribution (and OMEGA), and it still gave me a=

very small difference in the intercept for the 2nd and 3rd populations.

Is there an issue with using mixture models with logistic regression? I'm j=

ust using FOCE, Laplacian, without interaction, and LIKE.

Any ideas?
