R Dataset / Package survival / colon
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the colon data set which pertains to Chemotherapy for Stage B/C colon cancer. The colon data set is found in the survival R package. Try to load the colon data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("colon"). This may load the data into a variable called colon. If R says the colon data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("survival") and then attempt to reload the data with library("survival") followed by data("colon"). Perhaps strangley, if R gives you no output after entering a command, it means the command succeeded. If it succeeded you can see the data by typing colon at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the colon R data set. The size of this file is about 79,828 bytes.
Chemotherapy for Stage B/C colon cancer
These are data from one of the first successful trials of adjuvant chemotherapy for colon cancer. Levamisole is a low-toxicity compound previously used to treat worm infestations in animals; 5-FU is a moderately toxic (as these things go) chemotherapy agent. There are two records per person, one for recurrence and one for death
The study is originally described in Laurie (1989). The main report is found in Moertel (1990). This data set is closest to that of the final report in Moertel (1991). A version of the data with less follow-up time was used in the paper by Lin (1994).
