We present a method for comparing the survival functions of quality-adjusted lifetime from two treatments. This test statistic becomes the ordinary log-rank test when quality-adjusted lifetime is the same as the survival time. Simulation experiments are conducted to examine the behavior of our proposed test statistic under both null and alternative… CONTINUE READING
