We propose new procedures for estimating the univariate quantities of interest in both additive and multiplicative nonparametric marker dependent hazard models. We work with a full counting process framework that allows for left truncation and right censoring. Our procedures are based on kernels and on the idea of marginal integration. We provide a central limit theorem for our estimator.
