Adaptive Strategies for Retention in Care among Persons Living with HIV

Optimizing retention in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) treatment may require sequential behavioral interventions based on patients’ response.

Efficient and robust approaches for analysis of sequential multiple assignment randomized trials: Illustration using the ADAPT-R trial

In this paper, Lina Montoya and Maya Petersen present a robust and efficient approach using targeted maximum likelihood estimation (TMLE) for estimating and contrasting expected outcomes under the dynamic regimes embedded in a SMART, together with generating simultaneous confidence intervals for the resulting estimates.
