Abstract

We describe models for infectious disease attack rates outside Aalen's multiplicative class and incorporating heterogeneity and interactions between subjects. Large-sample theory for the Nelson-Aalen estimator is developed, and its relevance examined in a simulation study. Planning for randomized, controlled clinical trials of prophylactic HIV vaccines partly motivated this work.
