    Survival times of patients can be compared using rank tests in various experimental setups, including the two-sample case and the case of paired data. Attention is focussed on two frequently occurring complications in medical applications: censoring and tail alternatives. A review is given of the author's recent work on a new and simple class of censored rank tests. Various models for tail alternatives are discussed and the relation to censoring is demonstrated.
