Is anyone aware of any literature in which statistical methods familiar in 
econometrics are used in medical research other than in pharmacoeconomics or 
health economics?  

For example, I'm wondering whether there has been some attempt, say, to use 
dynamic panel model methods (think -xtabond-) in so-called dose-titration 
clinical pharmacology studies.  It would seem that the issue of feedback in 
dose-titration studies would make dynamic panel methods ideal, considerations 
of nonlinearity taken into account.  There would seem to be many other examples 
in which confounding or potential confounding in longitudinal clinical studies, 
even as arises in randomized clinical trials, could be at least be approached 
with methods associated with econometrics.

I've tried Web searches with search terms that come to mind, but without much 
luck.  Does anyone on the list have any leads that he or she could share as an 
entry-point into the pertinent literature, if there is any?
