In survival studies time to first outpatient clinic check instead of time to event is, usually, measured. This analysis assumes that time to first outpatient check is equal to time to relapse. However, instead of a time to relapse an interval is given, in which the relapse has occurred, and so this variable is somewhat loose. This chapter is to assess whether mean time to relapse can be appropriately inferenced from a generalized linear model with an interval censored link function.
