[R] Model (Y) from left-censored independant variable (s)

Hi all;
I'm trying to model a response variable (Y) from one (and eventually more...) independant left-censored variable (X*)
In other words, X* is a random variable with values 0 -> inf.

Thus, let  c=0
X*= x if x>= c
X*= c if x< c

Does anyone knows a function or package in [R] enabling to model Y from a censored predictor X*?

Thanks for your help!
