Like all medical reporters, I see Kaplan-Meier survival curves for dozens, possibly hundreds of study reports that I cover at medical meetings each year.
Terminal slowing or reversal of the rate of decline, equivalent to the non-Gompertz function characteristic of the survival curve for the population, is unlikely, except perhaps in association with some therapy that dramatically reverses or eliminates a severe illness.
