R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, Windows and MacOS. To download R, please click on this link and choose your preferred CRAN mirror.

The purpose of this package is to study the heterogeneity of risk factors between two groups of patients. Missing data are not allowed. Estimation of the parameters is based on partial likelihood maximization and Monte-Carlo simulations associated with bootstrap re-sampling yields to obtain the corresponding standard deviations.
As an example, we proposed a data frame with the data extracted from the DIVAT data bank for first kidney transplant recipients (reference group) and second kidney transplant recipients (relative group).
