Overall Survival

Overall survival is measured from the time of diagnosis to the time of death from any cause. If the patient is not known to be deceased' overall survival is censored on the date the patient was last known to be alive. Overall survival is usually not subject to competing risks. However' if overall survival following regimen A is sought' and the patient is then undergoing an allogeneic transplantation and dies from transplant-related complications' death from transplantation becomes a competing risk for regimen A.
