I have on my project list to create an ado (MLE
estimation command) to do the non-mixture cure models
described in R. Sposto, Statistics in Medicine 2002;
21:293-312, "Cure model analysis in cancer: an
application to data from the Children's Cancer Group"
(One could choose an exponential model for the
survival component.)

I would be interested to know if this has been done.
