Thursday, January 9, 2014 - 3:30pm

Dynamic treatment regimen is emerging as a new strategy for treatment which takes individual heterogeneity in disease severities, background characteristics and related clinical measurements into consideration. In this work, we propose a strategy to select variables with qualitative interactions to get the optimal treatment regime based on sequential advantage. We will demonstrate the proposed method with extensive numerical results and a real data analysis.
