Abstract
We consider the conditional estimation of the survival function of the time T2 to a second event as a function of the time T1 to a first event when there is a censoring mechanism acting on their sum T1 + T2. The problem has been motivated by a treatment interruption study aimed at improving the quality of life of HIV-infected patients. We base the analysis on the survival function of T2 given that T1 ¿ I, where I represents a period of scientific interest (1 trimester, 1 year, 2 years, etc.) an...
