- data
Data frame containing the following relevant variables.

- yvar
A character vector of length 1. Outcome variable name. It should be the time variable for the survival outcome.

- avar
A character vector of length 1. Treatment variable name.

- mvar
A character vector of length 1. Mediator variable name.

- cvar
A character vector of length > 0. Covariate names. Use

`NULL`

if there is no covariate. However, this is a highly suspicious situation. Even if`avar`

is randomized,`mvar`

is not. Thus, there are usually some confounder(s) to account for the common cause structure (confounding) between`mvar`

and`yvar`

.- emm_ac_mreg
A character vector of length > 0. Effect modifiers names. The covariate vector in treatment-covariate product term in the mediator model.

- emm_ac_yreg
A character vector of length > 0. Effect modifiers names. The covariate vector in treatment-covariate product term in the outcome model.

- emm_mc_yreg
A character vector of length > 0. Effect modifiers names. The covariate vector in mediator-covariate product term in outcome model.

- eventvar
An character vector of length 1. Only required for survival outcome regression models. Note that the coding is 1 for event and 0 for censoring, following the R survival package convention.

- a0
A numeric vector of length 1. The reference level of treatment variable that is considered "untreated" or "unexposed".

- a1
A numeric vector of length 1.

- m_cde
A numeric vector of length 1. Mediator level at which controlled direct effect is evaluated at.

- c_cond
A numeric vector of the same length as

`cvar`

. Covariate levels at which natural direct and indirect effects are evaluated at.- yreg
A character vector of length 1. Outcome regression type:

`"linear"`

,`"logistic"`

,`"loglinear"`

,`"poisson"`

,`"negbin"`

,`"survCox"`

,`"survAFT_exp"`

, or`"survAFT_weibull"`

.- mreg
A character vector of length 1. Mediator regression type:

`"linear"`

or`"logistic"`

.- interaction
A logical vector of length 1. The presence of treatment-mediator interaction in the outcome model. Default to TRUE.

- casecontrol
A logical vector of length 1. Default to FALSE. Whether data comes from a case-control study.

A regmedint object.
