In a randomized longitudinal clinical trial designed to evaluate two or more rival treatments, an intent-to-treat analysis requires inclusion of all randomized patients, regardless of whether they remain on protocol for the duration of the study. We propose a piecewise linear random effects model for analyzing longitudinal data where the multivariate outcome can depend upon time spent on treatment. The model assumes that data are available on a random sample of subjects after treatment is terminated, and allows either a pragmatic or explanatory analysis (as defined by Schwartz and Lellouch, 1967, Journal of Chronic Diseases 20, 637-648). Full maximum likelihood estimation of the model parameters is carried out using widely available statistical software for repeated measures with missing data and for nonparametric survival curve estimation. Data from a national, multicenter pediatric AIDS clinical trial are analyzed to illustrate implementation and interpretation of the model.
