    • Attrition in heterogeneous cohorts 

      Vaupel, James Walton; Zhang, Z (Demographic Research, 2010-11-10)
      In a heterogeneous cohort, the change with age in the force of mortality or some other kind of hazard or intensity of attrition depends on how the hazard changes with age for the individuals in the cohort and on how the ...
    • Co-evolution of a broadly neutralizing HIV-1 antibody and founder virus. 

      Alam, S Munir; Boyd, SD; Cai, Fangping; Chen, S; Chen, Y; Cohen, M; Du, X; ... (45 authors) (Nature, 2013-04-25)
      Current human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) vaccines elicit strain-specific neutralizing antibodies. However, cross-reactive neutralizing antibodies arise in approximately 20% of HIV-1-infected individuals, and details ...
    • Differential response to exercise in claudin-low breast cancer 

      Boss, K; Bowie, Michelle; Choudhury, KR; Darr, D; Dewhirst, Mark Wesley; Fuller, Julie; Glass, Oliver Kent; ... (14 authors) (Oncotarget, 2017-01-01)
      © Glass et al. Exposure to exercise following a breast cancer diagnosis is associated with reductions in the risk of recurrence. However, it is not known whether breast cancers within the same molecular-intrinsic subtype ...

      Reish, ME; Zhang, Z; Ma, S; Harrison, I; Everitt, Henry (JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY C, 2016-03-10)
    • Life expectancy and disparity: an international comparison of life table data. 

      Vaupel, James Walton; Zhang, Z; van Raalte, AA (BMJ Open, 2011-07-29)
      OBJECTIVES: To determine the contribution of progress in averting premature deaths to the increase in life expectancy and the decline in lifespan variation. DESIGN: International comparison of national life table data from ...
    • Losses of expected lifetime in the United States and other developed countries: methods and empirical analyses. 

      Shkolnikov, VM; Andreev, EM; Zhang, Z; Oeppen, J; Vaupel, James Walton (Demography, 2011-02)
      Patterns of diversity in age at death are examined using e (†), a dispersion measure that equals the average expected lifetime lost at death. We apply two methods for decomposing differences in e (†). The first method estimates ...
    • The difference between alternative averages 

      Vaupel, James Walton; Zhang, Z (Demographic Research, 2012-12-06)
      Background: Demographers have long been interested in how compositional change, e.g., change in age structure, affects population averages. Objective: We want to deepen understanding of how compositional change affects population ...
