This paper considers the problem of non-parametric treatment comparisons when mixed interval-censored failure time data are available, which often occurs in clinical trials and epidemiological studies. By mixed interval-censored data, we mean that the survival time of interest is observed to belong to an interval or to be right-censored. For the problem, we generalize the most commonly used log-rank test for right-censored survival data. Numerical studies are conducted and reported to evaluate… CONTINUE READING
