Several non-parametric test procedures have been proposed for incomplete survival data: interval-censored failure time data. However, most of them have unknown asymptotic properties with heuristically derived and/or complicated variance estimation. This article presents a class of generalized log-rank tests for this type of survival data and establishes their asymptotics. The methods are evaluated using simulation studies and illustrated by a set of real data from a cancer study. Published by Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
