In contrast, under the cause specific hazard rate framework [17] introduced a semiparametric Bayesian method assuming that each cumulative baseline cause-specific hazard rate function has a gamma prior distribution, and a marginal likelihood function based on data and the prior parameter values was proposed for the estimation of regression parameters by considering cumulative baseline cause-specific hazard rate functions as a nuisance parameter.
