In this paper we present a Bayesian non-parametric analysis of survival time data, involving information from two types of treatment. We present an easy to compute Bayes factor comparing two model assumptions: no treatment difference and treatment difference and use this to model summaries for each of the two treatments, in particular predictive distributions.
