Statistical methods have become increasingly important and now form integral part of research in the health sciences. Many sophisticated methodologies have been developed for specific applications and problems. This self-contained volume, an outgrowth of an "International Conference on Statistical Methods in Health Sciences," covers a wide range of topics pertaining to new statistical methods and novel applications in the health sciences.

The chapters, written by leading experts in their respective fields, are thematically divided into the following areas:

* Prognostic studies and general epidemiology

* Pharmacovigilance

* Quality of life

* Survival analysis

* Clustering

* Safety and efficacy assessment

* Clinical design

* Models for the environment

* Genomic analysis

* Animal health

This comprehensive volume will be highly useful an of great interest to the health science community as well as practitioners, researchers, and graduate students in applied probability, statistics, and biostatistics.
