The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) system has become a rich resource for understanding the complex mechanisms of graft failure. As patients received care from different transplant centers, which might strongly confound graft failure mechanisms, Cox models stratified by centers can eliminate their confounding effects. Also, since recipient age is a proven non-modifiable risk factor, a common practice is to fit models separately by recipient age groups. The moderate sample sizes, relative to the number of covariates, in some age groups may lead to biased maximum stratified partial likelihood estimates and unreliable confidence intervals even when samples still outnumber covariates. To draw reliable inference on a comprehensive list of risk factors measured from both donors and recipients in SRTR, we propose a de-biased lasso approach via quadratic programming for fitting stratified Cox models. We establish asymptotic properties and verify via simulations that our method produces consistent estimates and confidence intervals with nominal coverage probabilities. The results can aid in delineating associations of many clinical factors with graft failure.
