Abstract

In this paper, we consider incomplete survival data: partly interval-censored failure time data where observed data include both exact and interval-censored observations on the survival time of interest. We present a class of generalized log-rank tests for this type of survival data and establish their asymptotic properties. The method is evaluated using simulation studies and illustrated by a set of real data from a diabetes study. KGaA.
